    Is this all the evidence you have? So far you have nothing here proving that either of these users are involved in a scam or in a scam just that they wanted to use a a middleman which is pretty common.

    You mean the fact that I traded the items to the intermediary and then never received payment or my items back is not proof? The second they got the items they unfriend and ignore me? What more would you like.

    Also,
    if you don't create two reports then it doesn't place a REPORT on the other persons profile so you are walking some other unsuspecting person right into the same scam.

    You only make ONE report for the single event... when you split up users like that for one event it makes investigating them harder.
    This is how it has to be done.
    Ok so you did trade items and didn't get paid correct?
    You didn't specify that so I had to ask.

    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 HERE…NOT imgur, NOT gyazo or any other 3rd party hosting site!

    Also please review this screenshot guide should you require assistance:

    It was across three trades because steam was crashing with so many items. Do you want me to do it for all three? This trade had most of the value. You can see the others in the screenshots above.
