    As somebody who has been scammed and is reporting to the authorities to take my scammer to court - I'm interested in asking what steamrep is doing to promote reporting to fraud to the actual authorites. fraud is rampant on the SCM and it seems that most people are not reporting to the authorities: only valve and steam rep (which makes little sense in getting justice) I think you guys have a terrific template and is of great help to the people who will investigate my claim to get justice. Why not set up a section to file a police report

    If you need help I can tell you what steps Im taking to get my item back + damages.

    We are an educational resource, interested in promoting safe trading practices and warning users about possible fraud, and are not affiliated with any police organizations. If victims wish to report online fraud to relevant authorities, we are in no position to meaningfully assist them.

    Even if you could prove jurisdiction, even if you could reliably identify who the scammer is IRL, no police department will know or care.

    And you're going to find it nearly impossible to track people IRL, and when you do they're going to be in Russia or Brazil or something.
