    Hello, this is here simply to assist in preventing the type of scam that is Spycrab Running:
    Here is something you can do to prevent this scam from occurring in TF2 Servers, I recommend you gather all this information throughout the match:
    1. Before you begin the Spycrab: - Get them to type the items that they are spycrabbing in chat and get them to make some form of agreement. This should be Print-Screened and filed as evidence so if they do lose the Spycrab and decide to disconnect from the server you have a piece of evidence to prove that they actually agreed to Spycrab in the first place.

    2. Gather as many screenshots as you can of the Score throughout the Spycrab Match.

    3. You must have a Print-screen of the user disconnecting from the server that you are Spycrabbing within.

    4. You should have a screenshot of your trade history. This will prove that you never got paid your rightfully owed items in the crab.
