    Scam Report

    Report Type: [Money] Other cash fraud (webmoney, bitcoin, etc)
    Virtual item type involved: [CSGO] Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Items

    Accused profile: 76561198069830466 ()

    Victim profile: 76561197994241501

    What happened? Description:
    This user baited me into a trade for BTC and used a lower value item trade offer and included the details within the trade offer. He verified his BTC account value by taking live screen shots and sharing the information over skype. After I completed the trade offer he immediately signed off and is now actively attempting to trade the much more valuable knife. His profile is marked as private and he has changed names several times immediately following the event at 10:20 PM CST. I have full chat logs from Skype.​

    Provide Evidence:
    Here you can find screen shots of the trade where he put the 'agreement' in the trade details. Our conversations occurred in skype and steam chat and the details from the trade offer 51017948 confirmed the intent. You can also see publicly screen shots he took after taking the knife. Please advise if additional details are helpful. The skype window also details the trade information that matches the steam trade offer.

    I then added him on another account and he mocked me several times. I have taken a screen shot of his later message telling me 'lol just go away' when I pasted the offer he made earlier in the trade offer detail.​

    Here you will see the current balance and all transactions associated with the account. Prior to trading I also sent a test payment and received a test payment from Nina to ensure that not only did they have a coinbase account but that it also had funds.

    Some additional information. The item is now in the hands of a higher tier trader named Shablagoo ( http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198010744735/ ). Shab seems legit and mentioned he got the item on quicksell for $300 which is about 30-40% of the approximate going value. Shab immediately removed Paytah from friends and blocked him as well. I've pasted our conversation below. Also pasting the TF2 Outpost chain of my knife passing hands.

    Shablagoo got the knife from Paytah Paytah on a quick sell on TF2 Outpost: ( http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198118920309 )
    Paytah is actually Paytax - here: http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198119143191 (trade banned)

    Half of the shared friends, about 15-20 of the friends lists of Paytah / Paytax are all scammers that post +rep one another on each others profile pages as an additional tactic used to deceive.

    Also, the same guy, on your forum, posting in this thread... before it was deleted/removed by a mod, I screen capped the message in my inbox since I subd to the thread. Dated 7/5, he's blatantly flaming steamrep in this very thread because of its lack of attention, even going so far as to bump it multiple times. Continous skype messages, profile still up on steam, many others are being scammed by this dude right now unfortunately :(

    Thanks for all of your help.

    There are quite a few other incriminating skype messages saved where the guy admits to scamming me and many others. Also all of these are still up on skype if anyone wants to see them in client, etc.

    Skype message are pretty much negligible, but all the other evidence is great.
