    Hello,
    So I need a middleman from SteamRep but they are all offline so I though in using a community admin. They are trustable as middlemans?

    SteamRep doesn't have their own middlemen, the only ones are community middlemen. It's up to you if you trust them or not, here's the note at the top of the middleman page.

    What transaction do you need a middleman for?

    Remember, you're 99% likely to be dealing with a scammer right now.

    Your best bet in any cash transaction is to have them buy keys and then trade you the keys. You can then later sell the keys for money securely. There are some automated sites, such as dispenser.tf, or many high-rep users on trading sites like tf2outpost.

    Who is your buyer?

    If you're selling for paypal, you're also still risking a chargeback even if they do pay.

    You should tell him to buy keys and trade you the keys. You can then sell the keys later. This is the only safe way to sell items for money.

    @Salmon and for me each key must be worth how much? 2,40 or like 2$?

    Not true. There are other "money platforms" that actually care about virtual items and the customers. There's definitely safer ways (if you don't go first), unfortunately people choose to use the first program they see.

    My statement of the "only" safe way is a bit overzealous, but it's the easiest to use. In terms of fees and convincing someone else to also use it, keys as a currency to later sell to get "real" currency is the best.

    You can search around, they're usually about $2.

    Hi. Question - Why in the hell is this thread not locked yet? Or am I missing the joke?
    https://steamrep.com/list/M

    And fast is silly. If you're being rushed into something, then it's possible someone's trying to scam you.

    I sometimes think it's better to leave a thread open for a while, so people can talk and them close it. But your right.
