    Please provide a full screen shot of your Trade Inventory History showing for sure the trade in question(NOT TRADE OFFER!!)- open this with a web browser, move your mouse over the users name in question so it shows up the hypertext popup URL at the bottom of the screen - take the screen shot DO NOT edit it in anyway and upload. Also need a screen shot of your Paypal ACTIVITY (not Summary) for several days beginning with the date before this trade..full screen DO NOT edit this shot in anyway. Upload HEREā€¦NOT imgur, NOT gyazo or any other 3rd party hosting site!

    Also please review this screenshot guide should you require assistance:

    https://forums.steamrep.com/threads/screenshot-guide-requirements.157969/

    Also I need the SR profile block of the fake middleman that you traded with.

    Lastly you asked that we censor items - that would be unproductive and would block public access at this time for evidence so you either want to leave everything up for now and we review the report or you wish to decline the report and I'll remove your images. Your choice.

    Yes, I have traded directly to the buyer as I followed the middleman's instruction thinking it was from a legit subreddit as I was dumbfounded by checking the profile between the subreddit and the one im talking to in steam.

    I also had a bit of skepticism on why, but I thought of because they wanted to bypass the 7 day trade window
