    Appeal description:
    I fell for the festive/vized scam (my trade history is in the screenshot) to an actual scammer. He offered me 3 strange festivized scatterguns claiming they were festive, (for my hat worth 25 keys) and that they were worth 48 keys, which would be correct if they were festive. It was my first encounter with a scam like that, so I accepted it. Then I immediately wanted to buy a hat actually worth 48 keys for those scatterguns, I sent out multiple trade request to hats I wanted, and went to play tf2, and whoever accepted first, would get the scatterguns. Then in the next 10 minutes, i receive multiple messages calling me a scammer. I of course was confused, and then i took a closer look at the scatterguns and realized they were festivized. I sent an apology to all the people i offered these scatterguns, but even after i apologized, one person still decided to report me on steamrep. I was never planning on scamming anyone, if one of the trades went through and the person explained to me that they were not festive, i wouldve given the items back, and im not a scammer, my profile is public and you can leave comments. Im sorry for this misunderstanding and i hope you can lift the trade ban on backpack.tf and other sites. But it's kinda crazy that one person with 1 screenshot of a 'scam' attempt and no proof of me ever scamming anyone, can get me banned from trading, i must say.​

    You explicitly called them festive and priced them at 48 keys, you sent the offers that you had to double check/verify before sending, that is 100% on you, ignorance is not an excuse, this is a scam, irrelevant of what happened before.

    Firmly denied.
