    * Old account, only recent activity. Ebay purchase?
    * "Girl account", Better for scamming
    * Speaks to me like a newbie, but knows quite a lot about trading and csgo. Even mentions middlemen in trading.
    * Very high level friends? Odd rather than suspicious.
    * 15 levels gained in a week from 10 to 25.
    * Thousands upon thousands of messages and trades on csgolounge, all gained within 3 days.
    * Buying "An aesthetically pleasing virtual knife". go to OPskins maybe?
    * The most obscure of obscure titles possible. Supposed reason: "HumbleBunble, G2A and Bundlestars have been having some great deals". I don't buy it, I think it's a library filler.
    * Send Trade Offer ads without anything special in inventory. Haven't got them yet?
    * Mentions AFKing for trading cards, but haven't done it for more than 8 games... odd.
    * Nice knife, but what happened to it? or was it even yours in the first place...
    * The botting incident was 1½ weeks ago... around when you started playing counter strike? So you knew about csgolounge botting before your first competitive match?
    * Eu timezone? really? I knew there were a few french speaking there but THAT loyal to Europe? (To be confirmed, might just be playing on early mornings and nights.)
    * Console and Wow you say? To do: Ask wow questions.

    * Stream much? I haven't seen it. Especially since it's only been live for 2 weeks.
    * Twitch profile pic same as offline pic. Seems to actually know a bit of photoshop. No results on reversed image search though.
    * 1988 followers on twitch... Not a single one with a profile pic. And also in two weeks. Also, awfully close to 2000...
    * All followers follow 100+ channels... They follow obscure and popular channels... Veritasium on facebook clickfarms anyone?
    CONCLUSION: Bought followers.
    * But if you've gone this far with your twitch, how far can you have gone with your steam profile?

    ---OVERALL---

    Seriously, this account has gone to EXTREME limits to seem legitimate. But I call scammer.
    The fact that she bought 2000 twitch followers just makes it seem like she goes far, like really far to scam.
    Everything I asked in my interview was checked out, but some things above just does not legitimize her claims
    If you don't know the veritasium reference, look it up. It's really quite neat.

    In the broad view I think about 50 USD was involved in:
    1. Buying account
    2. Buying games
    3. Buying followers
    4. Possibly buying steam friends, although could be a result of the first account owner "Verbar".

    Took around 2 weeks to produce account although might be more.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Spent a few hours on that but I think It may have given some results. Unfortunately she is a steamrep donator and I will not be mad if there is some conflict of interest, just slightly disappointed.
    Worth keeping an eye on, with this much work behind it I think it's about to pull of a major scam.
    Not telling you to ban it, but just a heads up.

    Any chance a comment from my Profile Page can be removed? Just don't want any comments on it, that's all. I edited my settings for future. Very strange request but I do appreciate your assistance if it's not too much trouble.

    "+rep" doesn't say anything about what was traded or w/e. Fakerep is not some SR will investigate, this is for the partner communities where people have rep threads and get fake replies on their rep threads about trades that didn't happen or made with a alt account on that thread.

    Hello,

    When I checked my friends on csgo.exchange I saw that I had traded with a user who has been steamrep-banned. I don't have a caution tag or a (one-time) warning. Obviously, I regret trading with him now... Should I be worried? Or??

    Consider yourself as having warned yourself. You have nothing to worry about at this time if what you said is true. Just try to be more diligent with who you trade with in the future. The rule isn't there to be a policed policy. It is there to prevent users with lower morals assisting a user who has committed fraud from making profit off of his stolen goods.

    Well once again someone posts here to get a report looked at or removed.... You need to understand that everyone has a report to be reviewed, everyone has a appeal to be looked at. You are at the bottom of a very very long list of them. You can only post evidence to support your side of the story in the report till it gets looked at - so basically you have to wait your turn like everyone else regardless of what site you run or what service you have.

  15. [Цитата="HorseDick_(ЩĄ)_Dot_MPEG, должность: 292638, члена: 18"]Ну опять кто-то посты здесь, чтобы получить отчет посмотрел или удалены.... Вы должны понимать, что у каждого есть отчет будет рассмотрен, у каждого есть призыв, чтобы на них смотрели. Вы находитесь на дне очень очень длинный список из них. Вы можете публиковать только те доказательства, чтобы поддержать свою версию событий в отчете пока не дойдет посмотрел - так в основном вы должны ждать своей очереди как и все остальные независимо от того, какой сайт вы запустить или какую услугу у вас.[/Цитата]
    I understand it but I have customers and that the complaint will scare them

    Apparently you don't understand... you have to wait your turn like everyone else regardless of what site you run, what service you have. You are allowed to post evidence supporting yourself and against the claim on that report thread till then posting here won't get you anywhere.

    In-game steam browser won't download any without asking you. So if you didn't "save" anything, then that is not a issue for you.

    The only thing you might have become a victim of was maybe on a XSS exploit that may have been an issue at that time. That would have been expressed by you losing a number of items to a unknown account at that time. Unlikely tho.

    Just don't click links of anybody, even those you know, for most fall for it when its a close friend of theirs, trusting their links. Find the sites yourself. You don't need a "special" version of anything to connect to their "server" (fill in: mumble, "anti-cheat plugin", TeamSpeak "audio codec", screenshot ".scr" file (which is an executable, shorthand for ".SCRipt" or ".SCReensaver" and not some weird image that won't open in a browser, almost all images will open in your browser fine, if not: don't download it.

    The mental switch on anything offered for downloads and links should be default to "NO".

    Anything legit, will be with a huge site, and thousands of users, and articles pointing to the site all over the place. If you can't find anything bout it, its prolly fake. If its not the same URL as the real: probably a fake. If you got it linked: probably fake.

    Also a great tip on fake Steam sites: put in fake information... fake sites will accept everything, real sites will have that "lock" in the URL toolbar that is a Extended Certificate.

    I went ahead and archived the report against you so there are no more pesky "unconfirmed reports" scaring away your customers. Your SteamRep profile should look much nicer now!
