    Appeal description:
    I am banned for " Attempted Trust Scam: https://forums.steamrep.com/threads...5096-shaft__-tf2-team-fortress-2-items.61327/ "

    In the screenshots I am "david "virtual paint" dickinson"

    My friend "`shaft__" asked me to vouch for him a for a trade he was doing, I was happy to vouch for him since I had done trades with him in the past and we had been steam friends for a long time, the first 3 chat screenshots are clearly a scam but I wasn't in the chat to see any of this, when I am added I say a greeting and then:

    "ye these guys are trustworthy as f✿✿✿
    takes it from me mate
    im a big shot"

    That is my only contribution to the chat before i'm called a scammer, i was joking around with the big shot part but I did genuinely believe 'shaft__ was trustworthy. I don't see how this means I attempted a trust scam, 'shaft__ told him about "trade bugs" before I was in the chat therefore I had no way of knowing a scam was unfolding and I never commented on them.

    I did purchase items from him, but there was no open steamrep reports on him at the time so I had no reason to think this was a bad idea.

    Finally, in the original scam report 'shaft__ admits that I had nothing to do with the scam:

    "my friends who i was trying to get to help me needed as much sick sales techniques thrown down on them to believe my web of lies as the mark. they are innocent, "

    This happened so long ago i'm not sure what screenshot proof I could provide that wasn't already available in the original report.​

    After reviewing the report, I am going to leave this processing as a regular SR appeal and not a mistake on the accepting admins part.

    After further review of the chat that you do not dispute as genuine, you are incorrect in saying you were not on when Shaft said he needed a middleman due to "bugged/glitched trading". Furthermore, you had no comment or reaction to Shaft when he admits in chat he is attempting to scam/scamming and has scammed others. It does not appear your reaction at the time matches with what you said in this appeal. Can you please explain/clarify these discrepancies? Two weeks notice will be given to followup.

    After I joined all shaft said was "i told him how trade bugs or w/e" That's a pretty vague statement to me and I wasn't really invested or caring about the trade at all, my friend asked me to vouch for him and sometimes trades DO bug, not in a way that would require a middleman but I simply wasn't invested in the chat.

    I had been called a scammer for offering 80% quick buy prices 1000 times before so when I get called a scammer for joining a chat I missed 90% of I didn't take it seriously at all. I also didn't think shaft was being serious either, claiming to have scammed 5 buds and everything else that happened in the chat was exactly the type of humor I enjoyed 5 years ago and I was entirely desensitized to scammer accusations.

    When I read the first 3 screenshot chats in the original report, which I was not apart of, it was immediately obvious to me it was a scam, but I didn't have that knowledge until it was too late and the report was posted.
