    Scam Report

    Report Type: [Rep Fraud] Impersonation with intent to defraud
    Virtual item type involved: [TF2] Team Fortress 2 Items

    Accused profile: 76561198024402255

    Victim profile: 76561198122669215

    What happened? Description:
    So essentially this person attempted to impersonate a member of valve.

    Whilst playing TF2 I got a message from a random person saying they got scammed by someone impersonating me, he reported me on accident and told me to clear it up with this admin, I added this so called "Valve Admin" on discord and he essentially told me to clear up my name I had to send him my items to be "checked" for any suspicious trades, I asked him if that was really necessary as I showed him my Trade History he still persisted to me trading him the majority of my more expensive items.​

    Provide Evidence:
    He persuaded me after steam to discord, I apologize if this is an inconvenience and I understand completely if this makes my Report Declined, just to be clear I never fell for the scam.

    You reported the wrong user to start with - you should be reporting the FIRST user you were involved with.
    However this user you did report is a REAL STEAM EMPLOYEE! They were never involved and you were deceived into thinking they were on discord which nobody at Steam/Valve will use any thing like that to communicate to you.
    The account you should be reporting is also highly likely to be hijacked and is almost 99.999% the case so report everyone to Valve - report the discord users to Discord not here.
    I'm marking Invalid due to hijacking situation as it mimics the exact same situation. Threats alone would make this invalid as that is against policy as well.
