    Last week (March, 15th, 2021) I was scammed when selling a knife. The buyer, user name
    Hidden Content:
    **Hidden Content: Content of this hidden block can only be seen by members of (usergroups: Administrative, Moderating).**
    ..., did not pay the negotiated price, but took the knife into his equipment. I lost 1030 EUR.

    Have any of you had similar scam experiences?
    Every hint helps


    The scammer uses different usernames on Steam / CS GO / Discord:
    Hidden Content:
    **Hidden Content: Content of this hidden block can only be seen by members of (usergroups: Administrative, Moderating).**

    He proceeds like this:
    1. contact via Steam Chat
    2. switch to Discord (to speak)
    3. he shows a PayPal account with lots of money on it.
    4. parallel to the handing over of the knife (the item) - he asks to make a PayPal request to the account shown.
    5. the PayPal request is not answered - no payment will be made
    6. immediately after handing over the item, the scammer blocks the communication (unfriend)

    Steamrep resfuses to help because we switched to Discord and they say that it goes out of their "Territory".
    Thanks for ur help!

    !!DONT TRADE WITH THIS GUY!!

    Since this is all that it appears to be I will go ahead and archive.
