    Who were you talking to first? @Veyll If you were talking to the other user first that is who you should have reported NOT this user...you just reference other users involved in a report. Basically if the other user was already tagged there isn't a thing more we can do to them here - same with this user. You should have just ignored/deleted them upon seeing they were tagged and just moved on never even getting to conversation.

    Who was the other user by SR profile block please.

    I was talking with dayz first. He wanted to use a sourcerep admin to "record the transaction", giving me 3 links, 2 of which were legit admins and then Travis's profile.
    Here's dayz's profile block
    | steamname: dayz # original
    | steam3ID: [U:1:275792524]

    I'm also attaching a screenshot of Travis's profile page, where he shows that he is an admin, but when you look at his SR profile, he clearly isn't.

    The reason I reported Travis, is because he's claiming to be a sourcerep admin and is an accomplice or most likely an alt of the dayz impersonator.

    Now looking at Travis's sr profile, it seem you have banned him now with the help of someone else who was scammed by him, so my report is no longer needed.

    @Veyll The user was tagged thru another report I came across - but the Dayz user was already tagged and that is who you talked to first - you would have never known about the travis user if you check users out first and avoid them if they are already tagged.
    The travis user account is likely just a throw away and will be replaced in days...there are thousands of them I'm sure.
    I'm adding this last note to the travis user now - any future reports for either user will be archived - there is nothing more we can do to them here so please in the future check users out before accepting friend requests.
    Report them to Valve if you haven't already
    In order to do that, you have to:
    1. Visit the accuseds profile
    2. Click MORE drop-down located at the top right of the page
    3. Choose REPORT VIOLATION
    4. Select the violation, then describe it and provide the evidence
    5. Click SUBMIT REPORT
