    Scam Report

    Report Type: [Money] PayPal scam or scam attempt
    Virtual item type involved: [TF2] Team Fortress 2 Items

    Accused profile: 76561197973509105

    Victim profile: 76561198149815935

    What happened? Description:
    I have not played TF2 in a year ish now, not been on steam in a while either to be honest, but I have started pc gaming again recently and a few days in I receive a friend request from the accused user asking to trade. Bearing in mind I had not traded in a long long time, so had no current offers up.

    Now though I had not played the game in a while, I still remembered how to trade, specifically how to spot shifty behavior and avoid possible scams. Straight away I notice that he keeps suggesting this "trading" site, tf2misty.com which I was first worried to click on, but whe I did it looked odd. I tried to find out more about the site by googling it, and found another report involving it, about scamming. The FAQ section on the site also required a log in, which I found odd.
    https://forums.steamrep.com/threads/report-76561197963499226-tf2-team-fortress-2-items.188944/

    After many attempts of trying to get me to use the site, he sends a link to another site, Itemfloat.com, where I found a similar situation. After googling I found a reddit post on a csgo subreddit, which mentioned that the site was fake. Upon entering the site I also found that most features required a sign in.
    https://www.reddit.com/r/csgo/comments/bkphha/httpsitemfloatcom_is_this_site_real_or_fake/

    Still uncertain, I asked the accused to use various other sites, such as Bazaar.tf and tf2outpost , (which i only recently found out was shut down, damn, I used to use it). I was suspicious when he posted an image of the failed site, but realized that that was because the site was shut down.

    I am certain that these sites are sites which have a fake steam log in which allow them to have access to your account and items.​

    @Jezza_melee You did well reading and finding the past reports related to this site.. had you read deeper you would have seen we do not review phishing reports and that is exactly what this is and why those other reports were marked invalid.
    Please make sure you pay attention to those details in the future.
