    Appeal description:
    Last week i was scammed by a person named Posh and he got my unusual which i was selling on tf2 outpost, he used a middleman scam that i was not aware of at the time and i thought he was trying to buy it for 20 keys. I listened to his instructions and i soon realized i gave him my hat. He ran off in a second. I believe he has been reported for scamming and hence reporting me. I feel i have been reported falsly and feel is houldnt be banned. Please i ask again to unban me i am only 14 years old​

    Hello @Gaius,

    That is not what you where marked for. You tried the exact described "friend" middleman scam you claim happened to you on:

    | steamname: [FP] Dr. McKay
    | steam3ID: [U:1:46143802]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:0:23071901
    | steamID64: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198006409530
    | customURL: http://steamcommunity.com/id/DoctorMcKay
    | steamrep: http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198006409530

    He's owner of the FirePower Community, which is one of the Friend Communities of SteamRep.

    You specifically asked him if he had a friend that could "middleman", and he pointed to somebody he knew, and then a impersonator of that account with a slightly misspelled name was invited by you into the chat. He then invited the real one, which was also in-game.

    To jog your memory: http://files.steamrep.com/1/2014-11/2014-11-13_13-49-02.png

    Your accomplice/alt account in crime:
    | steamname: hamthelamb
    | steam3ID: [U:1:79317183]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:1:39658591
    | steamID64: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198039582911
    | customURL:
    | steamrep: http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198039582911

    I'd remind you to read this topic: http://forums.steamrep.com/threads/appeal-tips.66354/
    And pay special note to the following point(s):
    #1: Be honest
    #2: Be Straightforward.

    Now, would you try over with your argument?

    @Dr. McKay, ping to notify you.

    Ping successful, although I'm not sure if you want me to say something.

    I'd like to link to this history entry in which you were friends with both myself and the other account that was marked.

    Hello @Gaius,

    Your appeal has been reviewed and it has been rejected for the following reason(s):

    - Lying or other fraud during the appeal
    - Change of heart is not a valid reason to overturn a serious ban within the trade community

    Despite your appeal being rejected, it's recommended that you avoid future situations that might appear to be fraud with Steam trading. Sometimes people reported to Valve by its users can get their accounts trade banned by Steam Support.
