Trade was: I give earbuds, they provide $25 + 5 keys + DOTA 2. We used a middleman http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197981353644 to hold the virtual items first. The plan was she would use a credit card to pay a PayPal money request, something I haven't tried and will never try again. Turns out the card wouldn't work. At this point she had to go, so she gave me the card info and I verified the balance. I gave the middleman the green light to exchange the virtual items. I didn't know how to try to transfer the money, so I tried purchasing an Amazon Gift Card for myself, it was denied. Turns out the card wasn't registered in her name which is why neither of us were able to use it. I chatted with her everyday after the failed trade and she seemed willing to work it out and planed on buying a MoneyPak card. I think I was very helpful and tried to be accommodating, but today she has accused me of being a scammer and the gift card has zero balance. Since I still had the account info, I verified $25 was spent at the steam store late Saturday night: http://i.imgur.com/AMAmx.jpg I do have some PayPal rep on my steam profile and on TF2Outpost http://www.tf2outpost.com/rep/23961 If nothing comes of this, I at least learned a couple things: screenshot chat boxes and how to turn on a time/date stamp in steam chat. Please let me know if I can provide any more information. Thank you very much!
