    I recently noticed that I had a marked scammer on my friends list and went to check out who it was... turns out it was an alt account of someone I had traded with some time ago.

    He'd sent me a friend invite from the alt account and asked me to accept the request in chat (from his 'main' account with which I had recently traded).

    Tthe alt account is tagged for scamming a max's head and not paying (I must not have checked it at the time) but his 'main' account is clean with no tags or reports found.

    I don't seem to have access to chat logs where he asked me to add the alt, but the 'alt' is still friend's with the 'main' and there is some circumstantial evidence based on the account names: The tagged alt is currently 'raipho45' while the main is 'add my new account "ralpho95"'.

    Tagged alt 'raipho45': http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198066845028
    Main account 'add my new account "ralpho95"': http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198095434032

    'ralpho95' (possibly another alt account): http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198106287023

    I've had no interaction with the 'ralpho95' account and it's not friends with either of the other accounts but a search for 'ralpho95' only finds this one account plus the main account above.

    I'm not sure where to take it from here, is there enough evidence to do anything about either the main account or ralpho95 account? Or do I just remove the guy from my friend's list and leave it at that for lack of evidence?

    Reporting possible alts if fine. just list as above the SR ID blocks:

    Reporter (you)
    Scammer account
    (possible) alt accounts

    and the reasons you think its a alt. any evidence is great, but we can check with other means as well.
