    Report Type: [Money] PayPal scam or scam attempt
    Virtual item type involved: [DOTA2] Dota2 Items

    Accused profile: 76561198085699289

    Victim profile: 76561197995654183

    What happened? Description:
    We agreed to exchange my Dota2 items for Bitcoins.

    I transferred items, yet to receive bitcoins after 2 months of messing around. He has been unresponsive for the past few weeks.

    I offered for him to just send the items back, but he hasn't done that either.

    I know them from Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/user/Bizarro-aka-WhOaMi

    I run a Dota2 betting prediction website and we have talked in the past about Dota betting on reddit and on steam. This was my first trade with him.​

    Provide Evidence:
    I have screenshots of all of the steam/skype/email chat in this dropbox folder:

    Admin edit: moved evidence with personal info to be admin-only

    Unfortunately I couldn't access all of the history on my desktop steam chat client. I wasn't able to find a way to get steam chat history on desktop, but was lucky that I had it on mobile. Do you know some way to get the steam chat history on desktop?

    I am sure we can settle this. I will admit I took items to flip for him as a friend and owe him money. No proof needed, I do owe him 100-200 USD. E-mailed him to figure out the exact amount and will pay him asap.

    This is on me fasho

    No idea what's happening here, however..


    I have Wirecast, Wirecast GO (live streaming from my phone or phones camera), a youtube streaming channel, a twitch.tv streaming channel that I can stream my desktop with the new geforce experience drivers (or other programs) to defend myself against false, bullshit reports. Ever since the the first report (ever) against me in November was marked as evidence provided, when no evidence was provided (the mod reviewing was confused and unaware dota 2 items are valued can be valued as low as 0.01 USD - to my understanding) SteamRep has turned into a place for people to threaten fake reports and other extortion bullshit.

    I am now recording videos of every person I interact with regarding Steam Trading (with their knowledge). I only used screencapture previously but only for trades exceeding 4 digits.

    This report, not sure what's up with Jesse as I e-mailed him, he responded a day or two ago, and I replied today asking for verification of the BTC address being valid and other details. Whenever he responds he will be paid. I'll have a recording of it and if requested will happily upload.

    SteamRep should not be place where I am responsible for proving my innocence. That is insane - it's innocent until proven guilty where I live and the rules state the burden is on the "victim" to provide proper evidence. I replied here when evidence was lacking taking responsibility I fell behind with Jes and did indeed owe him the money. I don't review report daily but I've never heard of a scammer behaving the same or similar to not pay someone.

    Holy s✿✿✿. I have been wondering where these f✿✿✿ers were coming from adding my skype, cloud, and other accounts. Why am I being doxed on this forum? That should be for admin's eyes only.

    How is this acceptable? The amount of scammers and s✿✿✿ I've dealt with because of this doxing is 100% uncalled for.

    I knew there were issues but not making this information admin only is ludacris. How many people are red tagged without ANY EVIDENCE provided? So, SteamRep promotes doxing, is that what I am to take from this?

    Elaborating on my reaction above for the record – this is me, the real me, back from a very serious accident after being doped up by M.D.’s from the ER to my Primary Care Physician to a pain management specialist.


    The injury was definitely a battle. I was on crutches for 5 weeks’ pain meds even longer, and was not “myself” so to speak. I 100% deserve a tag for delaying trade agreements while in recovery from my accident. No arguing that as I told Hammy the other day. If Admins feel I should be banned, then so be it. I feel I have communicated the truth (to the best of my ability when I was doped up) and recognized and validated outstanding trade agreements even when the user had no evidence. I am not here to steal from people. I’ve gone out of my way to the point of people pleasing to help random Steam users (like during TI5 hooking people up with merchandise for no profit) and spending way more time than I care to admit helping new users to BTC, PayPal, and Steam in general learn the process of trading safely. I am the guy that gets the trade offer where the person sending screwed up, and resends it back saying be more careful not everyone is as nice as me.


    I do my fair share of shitposting and trolling xD no denying it. Sometimes, I struggle to take the internet seriously. Sometimes, I cannot take myself seriously (let loose). And after dealing with shithead scammers and time wasters for too long on a certain day – we all need a release and if I am not getting “any” shitposting from mobile was a misguided way to kill the time.


    Knowing full well I will be marked one way or the other is of no concern to me. What matters to me is not f✿✿✿✿✿✿ anyone over and setting the record straight for those that are not close enough to me to already know the deal. I have selfishly taken pride in being a legit seller and supplier of a highly demanded virtual goods for 1 ½+ years. I’ve given away hundreds if not thousands of dollars in donations, giveaways, gifts, and so forth. I felt blessed and grateful with my ability and am the type of person that can be happy and content just watching that noob get his current dream item.


    After reading me desperately trying to communicate to an online "friend" / "acquaintance" when I had no business discussing anything relating to money at the time I felt ill. I was showing people pleasing behavior in the fact I responded as much as I did. This may or may not have tripped him out more – only he knows.


    To be clear he had every right to post it as evidence but due to our personal relationship and history I felt entitled a few hours ago and genuinely pissed off he leaked the information above. It's been sitting here the entire time

    . On top of that learning SteamRep allows for those address' to remain public really caused my sense of entitlement to out. Even though I reacted emotionally, and like a child I stand by my belief those types of address should be made public on a forum dedicated to fraud prevention (a place where scammers are bound to see it which they did and exploit or try to however they can). I only see negative side effects, no positive (and experienced them as well).


    I felt violated by Jes, someone whom I helped earn money over a year ago, has seen my bet slips well over $200 and screenshots of my max item bets. He talked to me when I was trying to figure out the best way to cash out 150 rotten staches 14+ months ago. and we're tripping and reporting me over $200.......... Seriously, Jes? I was boiling with my s✿✿✿ don’t stink attitude.


    I still await his e-mail to complete the payment and will do so once he responds.



    Alright, my little blog has come to an end. I apologize to anyone that was effected negatively from my s✿✿✿ but that’s life. Time to move forward.


    I do humbly asked Steamrep Mods + Admins to redact my personal and private information. I feel it has no bearing on the outcome of the report (if that specific info is public or not).

    Thank you for your consideration in this matter



    P.S.


    If you’re having trouble empathizing… think

    . If you operate any vehicles (driving) think about one day having a terrible accident and where your priorities would be or state of mind if you were in severe pain that you're prescribed the stuff people take dying of cancer.


    With love,

    Biz

    @Bizarro - He gave you his bitcoin address earlier.

    Anyway, if the victim acknowledges that you really did have a sane reason to "verify the payment information" (and aren't stalling/distracting) then you can use that in your appeal after you've made good on your claims. For now this is sounding like every other scammer, trying to talk their way out of being banned.

    Follow through on your agreements or make sure you have a road to repay to your victim's satisfaction.

    @Savino,

    Your report was accepted and the accused was banned.

    Thank you for reporting this user.
