    So a guy randomly added me today, and offered me a burning napper for 7 buds. I checked the hat out, everything seemed fine, wasn't a dupe and it was the same hat some korean guy had offered me for 8 buds yesterday, so I figured it was legit. I talked him down to 6.5 buds, gave him 7 buds and he threw in a bills with the burning napper.

    Here's the steam information for the guy I bought the hat from:

    steamID: -=GHS[A]=- Falcor
    steamID32: STEAM_0:1:50180652
    steamID64: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198060627033
    customURL: http://steamcommunity.com/id/Falcorx
    steamrepURL: http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198060627033


    Here's the tf2items history page for the hat:

    http://www.tf2items.com/item/818972780


    After I bought the hat, I clicked on the hat on tf2op and saw that history, then started to feel sick. I bought it from a guy that was banned on tf2op for being the alt of a scammer (http://www.tf2outpost.com/user/50040), his steamrep was clear at the time I bought it, so I figured everything was legit.. I looked further into the history of the hat, and came across p-easy's tf2op page, which said he was banned because his account was compromised.. (I'm feeling horrible at this point) and I started to realize that this hat was stolen from p-easy extremely recently, and he's apparently been hijacked. After talking to Rob about this situation, I tried to get Falcor to un-do the trade since I want nothing to do with a dirty hat like this. I'm not sure if Falcor KNEW the hat was stolen, he said he bought it from the korean guy that offered it to me yesterday.

    After a long sequence of asking him to un-do the trade, with him not really being into that idea:

    This is where I offered to give him free stuff to un-do the trade. I was willing to let go of a half a bud just to get this stupid hat off my hands, I don't want anything to do with dirty hats. This is also where he tried to extort me a little more by saying he could un-do the trade if I was willing to lose a whole bud and bill, saying he could un-do the trade by giving me 5 straight buds back for the napper. (I paid 7, he threw in a bills):

    More of me trying to get him to un-do the trade:

    At this point, I just wanted to be done with the hat. I offered to give him an close to entire bud for free essentially, by throwing in 9 keys along with the deal. He wasn't really having that either, saying something about how he owed a friend a whole bud or something, so I basically gave up at that point. Apparently he grew a conscious or something though, and he randomly got a little upset at me for "defaming his clan" and agreed (possibly due to rob adding him and calling him a scumbag :>) to trade me back for 6 buds, so I lost a little over half a bud to this BS, which is totally worth it to be rid of a stolen hat.


    The end result, after he traded me back finally: (he has the nerve to ask for profile rep after this..)

    So what does this all mean, and why am I posting? I don't even know, I feel terrible about buying a stolen hat, and I'm now a part of the history for this hat, so I wanted to make sure I posted everything I know on the subject. I don't know if Falcor knew it was hijacked, but he's banned on tf2op for being the alt of a scammer, so I assumed the worst of him at the time. I hate how all of this turned out, and I hate that I didn't put in enough work into checking out the history of the hat, if I had looked into it more, or just noticed that p-easy had been hacked, it would have been easy to avoid this whole thing.

    I don't know if this is even steamrep worthy, but I felt like I should post everything that's happened with this hat, since it's hijacked. In the end, I got him to trade the hat back, so no harm no foul I guess, lost a bills or so, but that's worth it easily. If this doesn't even deserve a post, I'm sorry for wasting everyone's time. I'm just happy to be rid of the hat, and slightly miffed about him trying to extort me more, but that's the way things went :)

    Glad to know GHS never changes.

    Can we just mark everybody with a GHS tag yet?

    You are a paragon of morality, I tip my TC to you.
    On a more serious note that was a very moral decision of you, sorry for the loss of the items, but again, I am astounded by the higher path you took in this.

    What the f✿✿✿ is this GHS clan anyways? I see a lot of people running around with their tag but I never saw a website or a server of them or anything.

    I don't know much about them, but someone mentioned to me that they hate SR, or something like that.

    they hate SR because they stole ASBOs map and datastorm banned them resulting in asbo cautions. I then banned them from UTC which gave them UTC cautions too :D

    I hate thievery of any kind, be it a map, item, money or virginities.
