    Scam Report

    Report Type: [Gambling] Gambling fraud or spycrab runner
    Virtual item type involved: [TF2] Team Fortress 2 Items

    Accused profile: 76561198120392425 ()

    Victim profile: 76561198059778525

    What happened? Description:
    I admin in = ocu = Trading Network servers, one of our mods = ocu = Mrs.Roxy told me to join our 3rd server since there was someone hosting a raffle of an Unusual Team Captain. The minute I got in I checked his/her backpack to find out he/she didn't had said Unusual. Our other mods joined in, = ocu = Cookie Monster and = ocu = DatDnB to check his/her inventory history to see if he/she ever owned said Unusual, which they found out he/she never had. Since I needed proof of him/her hosting the raffle, I said I wanted to join, I added him/her and he/she talked to me through the trading chat and I asked who has this Unusual, he/she responded that his/her friend EpicTarantula has it but he/she didn't had it in his/her friend's list since EpicTarantula doesn't like holding people as friends. I took enough pictures of proving he/she was doing the raffle. Our group doesn't let our members make raffles on any of the servers anyways. After said events happen, he/she ran off from our server and has changed his/her name to "the guy who scamed on 6/27/2014". When said events happen, his/her name was "lorrainejohnson".​

    You let them take everyone's keys and hold the raffle anyway?
    Or did you ban this person straight away.

    I joined the server not knowing that this was going on. I had heard something about a burning team captain being a friend's inentory. Shortly after, I was told the story, and started to help find out the truth. The player did indeed say that their friend had a team captain with burning flames effect. Once we had enough proof of the scam, the player left and changed their name.

    We do not know if they had gotten any keys from it. I saw no keys in the player's inventory.

    The server only had 8 people, half of them were mods and admins, he didn't trade anyone, I was the first person to trade him and got the proof above.

    Its redundant but proves without a shadow of doubt that they meant to scam.

    When I joined in, he started explaining the raffle through the mic, I had to add him and made him explain it to me through the trade chat.

    I was there aswell. He only used voice chat other then what pkms gave you already. Should be enough proof. It was obvious as he did not have any unusual and never did. I checked his bp history. His intent was to scam people out of keys.

    Thanks guys, sounds like you guys have a nice server. I will gladly mark this ready for review.
    If more community admin worked together as well as you guys have the scam level would be sure to drop.
