    This was my first time buying an expensive unusual. It's worth 11 buds. He gave me a pretty fair price so I traded him. Afterwards someone pointed out that he was a scammer.

    I have found no proof the hat itself was scammed, but I'm not sure what to do, and I really don't want to get in trouble for this.

    Any help would be appriciated

    well, I looked in your backpack, and I see no valuable items. Total 12 items, total worth: 11 cents....

    You going to tell on which alt you did that, with what scammer and what unusual, or do we really have to dig for it?

    Curious on what detective work you did to find it.

    Basic alt finding, check stuff around, and find stuff.

    Are you sure this guy was a scammer? Did you check out his profile?

    Datastorm already linked the profile of the purchase in question and he did indeed buy it from a scammer.
