Scam Report Report Type: [Other] Any other fraudulant behavior Virtual item type involved: [TF2] Team Fortress 2 Items Accused profile: 76561198097412213 Victim profile: 76561198113365853 What happened? Description: I'm reporting on behalf of the victim, fellenjuls ( http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198113365853 ) On December 12, 2014, the victim unboxed a Sunbeams Winter Woodsman, and created an Outpost trade: http://www.tf2outpost.com/trade/24111329 The accused, being a friend of the victim, was told that the hat had been unboxed, and shamelessly sharked the hat from him within 10 minutes of the unbox. Venom failed to provide any information on the value this hat would bring in, and instead made him an offer he called "generous." He pressured the victim into selling the hat quickly, claiming the hat was "unpriced" and never told him the enormous potential value the hat contained. The hat was then sold for around 10-15 Buds in items, and within 24 hours has already received multiple offers ranging in 50-60 buds in value. Venom knew exactly what he was doing and took every effort to cover it up, but it wasn't quite good enough. With the help of the victim, Snapper, harsheldon, and Retro, I was able to gather enough evidence for my Outpost report, and now this one. Big props to them. Full chat logs, item details, trade history, and victim statements can be found below.

Venom has already been banned from TF2-T and PPM servers, and hopefully Outpost is the next in line. In the chat logs with Retro, you can clearly see him doctoring the whole situation and trying to lay out why this was not a shark by manipulating Outpost rules. He said he's in the clear, because if he gets an Outpost ban he can just refund it and everything will be fine. Isn't that nice. I ask SteamRep to look at the evidence below and ask if this person is truly any better than a scammer. Provide Evidence: All chat logs, trade history, and item history screenshots can be found below.
