    Scam Report

    Report Type: [Rep Fraud] Impersonation with intent to defraud
    Virtual item type involved: [TF2] Team Fortress 2 Items

    Accused profile: 76561198138684078

    Victim profile: 76561198018181064

    What happened? Description:
    Alright, I'll make this simple.
    I was putting up some items for trade on TF2 Outpost and this user adds me claiming to pay pure for all my valuable items.
    I found it suspicious at first because I've been scammed before. He has very few hours on TF2 and told me that we can make the trade but we must use a middleman.
    When I told him that none of my friends were online, he sent me an invite from a user impersonating [RG]Bacon [/r/tf2trade].
    I traded my green energy fruitshoot, stormy storm brigade helm, and all my trading cards.
    The fact is, I never play tf2 anymore and I didn't really check the profiles although something seemed suspicious as hell anyway.
    I really hope someone can help me since I don't want it to end like this. Even if it take forever, I'll appreciate it.​

    Provide Evidence:
    I did not verify the identity. I am wondering if steam rep can do anything about this or if it is entirely my fault.

    Is it possible for your to provide full steam chat with the accused?
    You seems you have only the second half.
    And give your inventory history, please, in full steam window, unedited.

    SR info block for fake MM (a lot of bans already)

    In future, please, check who you're trading with, you should check peoples' reputation on SteamRep(the most important one), SteamTrades, bp.tf trust when doing high value trades.
    Also, why did you want to use middleman? I understood it as it was "items for items" trade?

    Also, I'm not SR staff and I can't make a judgement call here.
