    What happened? Description:
    This report pertains to a key trading scam that occurred outside of the Steam's trading system. It does however provide undisputable audit trail and evidence, and is submitted for your consideration in the spirit of protecting community members from an extremely audacious and prevalent Steam scammer.

    The trade occurred on IndieGala's forums (in a private conversation).
    I've sent him my key for Ancestors Legacy first. Afterwards, instead of sending me a key for Dying Light, he sent me a key for Dying Light Developer Tools - which does not include the game itself.
    He outright refused to rectify the situation, and on top of that tried to force me to pirate the game instead.​

    Provide Evidence:
    The entire exchange is documented with the attached screenshots:

    If you wish to authenticate those screenshots, I can invite you to this private conversation with Solomon (you will need an IndieGala account for this). Neither of us can delete messages in the private conversation, so you can review it in its entirety.

    If you wish to authenticate my Steam account's licenses and library, I can provide you with a direct live access to my system and Steam account via TeamViewer. This way you can verify that the key Solomon has sent has in fact activated the Light Developer Tools (listed as "Dying Light Temporary Access" on the licenses list):

    and it does NOT include Dying Light executables required to run the game:

    After his refusal to rectify the situation, I have posted this scam report on IndieGala's public forum:
    - the trade scammers report thread: https://forums.indiegala.com/threads/scammers-trade-sector.1600/post-21277
    - and his trading thread: https://forums.indiegala.com/threads/games-for-trade.1959/post-21278
    to which he responded by continuing his deceitful narrative - publicly - engulfed in verbal abuse towards members of the forum. At that point he has also turned his Steam profile private.

    After four days this culminated in him returning to our private conversation - trying to coerce me into deleting the evidence of his scam under false pretenses (his last two messages in: trade-offer-238-page-2.jpg)

    On top of that Solomon has also been exposed using multiple Steam accounts to fabricate his false positive trading reputation.

    SteamRep Admin:
    Sorry you have no acceptable evidence of any scam here - nothing thru steam chat as required is presented.
    Please do not submit reports here without proper evidence.
    Nothing provided suggests/shows this user is or was guilty of any wrong doing per policy.

    Lastly report would be otherwise INVALID due to policy of no longer reviewing any reports dealing with codes/keys/game keys etc..
