    Description:
    Yesterday I was in discussions with chucks (his name was frosting at the time) to trade for his scorching modest, we spoke on tf2op (screenshots in attachment) and then he added me with this account http://steamcommunity.com/id/frostingreps. after pressuring me with the trade and confusing me by changing his mind all the time he told me he could trade my duped beams kabuto for me quickly, then trade the rest to get the modest.
    he then said he would have to go offline for a minute and log back in then trade me. i waited a few minutes and then he sent me another friend request and a trade invite with this account http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198008565058. he showed me the modest in trade and then I made sure we both agreed on what would happen and traded.
    a few minutes after he un-friended me, his backpack was set to private and he blocked me. I tried to contact him on tf2op and he has been ignoring me.
    the only other evidence I have is showing my backpack before the trade (http://www.tf2items.com/profiles/76561198003558896?time=1335278597) and after the trade (http://www.tf2items.com/profiles/76561198003558896?time=1335284587 ) with nothing added and the only thing take being the kabuto

    i know this is not much to go by, however another report was made about pinkie (http://forums.steamrep.com/threads/76561198008565058-pinkie.3468/) and both my and his unusuals ended up in chucks backpack (http://www.tf2items.com/id/frostingreps). I have a screenshot of pinkie claiming to have been hacked

    dont hold much hope in getting the unusual back, but i want to make sure no one else is scammed by chucks

    Do I get it right? He told you to trade him your kabuto so he could trade it for you? Could you explain this part a bit more in detail?

    yeah, he said that he could sell it for buds for me, as I told him I did not want to break it down if I was not guaranteed to get his modest and did not want to wait for ages for someone to offer a decent amount in buds. he claimed he was good at getting fast deals and would trade it for me, getting the best deal he could, then we would finish the rest of the trade and I would get the modest. he was very pushy and insistent, I checked his steam rep and it said he was clean, looked at his other posts and nobody had complained or called him a scammer. it was a stupid thing for me to do, but I really wanted his modest and he seemed trustworthy
