[16.39] vlad: Okay, give me a moment to check your account So apparently steam's database system automatically marked you as scammer due to fraudulent track caused by scammed item transactions. Do you have any idea why your account is currently marked or traded with scammed items? [16.42] FaNzu: no [16.43] vlad: Cases like this are usually caused by trading with scammers or accidentally bought a scammed item from a bot since bot can accept trade from anyone [16.45] FaNzu: sounds like a reasonable explanation [16.46] vlad: We need to determine which item was scammed by doing a process for us to clean the item's transcript via item database system to ensure your account's safety and to avoid any penalty or getting banned [16.47] FaNzu: how do we do that ? [16.48] vlad: before I explain the process, let me ask some questions [16.48] FaNzu: sure [16.48] vlad: How often do you trade? [16.48] FaNzu: very often almost everyday [16.49] vlad: Are you using the official steam community market to buy and sell items? [16.50] FaNzu: no not really, exept yesterday i sold an item but else no [16.51] vlad: Are you using third party sites for trading and buying items?

No items will be deleted or traded away from your account. Database will only check its full transcript to process the result of your itemsAnd I am going to remind you: any steam user that will be proven guilty of having suspicious plans or has committed a serious misconduct, a penalty will be assessed due to irregularity and attempted fraud. Steam will track your ip address and ban you from the server itself; so don't do anything that is against the Steam Trading Policy to prevent any further issues on your account. Don't you dare take this as a joke, but note it as serious as possible. Are we clear? [17.00] FaNzu: yeah we are clear [17.01] vlad: The database was already set to run the process. An offer should be sent in a moment After you accept the offer, no items will be deleted or will be traded away from you, the database will only need your items' full transcript to process the result of your items and for us to determine which item caused the fraudulent track so we can clean its history and clear your account to avoid penalty Did you receive a trade offer? [17.08] FaNzu: yeah, 2 sec me internet is slow right now [17.08] vlad: Please accept and wait for the database to send an authenticity code, the database will provide a guide on how to use that code Don't forget to confirm on your mobile steam guard so the database can run its full function [17.10] FaNzu: YALL WILL GET LIGMA IF YA TRYING TO SCAM SOMEONE ELSE get a life dude, and stop scamming people [17.10] vlad: Gyazo https://gyazo.com/fb87baa19773c7446d1c98f3b64b01e9 [17.11] FaNzu: lol wtf is this fake s✿✿✿ BTW why sent this to me you could you ban me, if go on with you day instead of pissing me off with your really bad scam attempt [17.18] FaNzu: what now? i have called you out on your scam, arent you supposed to like be angry with me in russian?
