    Ok, so i know that someone can get in trouble for trading with marked scammers, but what about caution users. Or people that have pending reports?

    No you can't get in trouble for trading with those that have a Caution tag or pending reports.
    Those markers are just kinda like a YELLOW light to proceed with caution and use your best judgement trading with those users due to past issues that weren't line crossing to warrant a full on Banned tag.

    Pending reports are just that...pending. Use your best judgement if you wish to trade with that person that has a pending or multiple pending reports. Same would apply to caution tagged users in some form.

    You can't trade with someone that has a Valve Trade Ban.

    Just to iterate, some Partner communities have a tougher stance on Trading with Scammers and see individuals with pending reports as trading with scammers, so I would advise using caution when dealing with those users. Ultimately, would advise against it, just to be safe.

    As long as they don't SR mark for those offenses. I hope you're not meaning that.

    No, while I understand the importance of the "Trading with Scammers" policy, and we obviously would act on reports. We tend to believe that a stronger emphasis on those doing the fraud will ultimately help the community more.
