    What do you mean they? You are reporting one user here? I don't understand why you have a different user as a victim vs you?

    I am /id/z1y, they are /id/beastman222.
    I cash trade often, they are using MY rep in their profile, while copying everything about my profile to impersonate me and attempt to scam people.

    Sorry, "they" is referring to the impersonator. The victim is my account, I'm not sure why my steamrep profile says otherwise if it does. This is my old pfp&username guess it never updated.

    Not what I asked for - also keep in mind that if you give screenshots of your steam client unless client URL is enabled they are unacceptable.

    You say the user is impersonating you with a link to your cash app - all I see is a link you didn't show where it goes or the cashapp location.

    I'm Canadian and we can't have cash-app in my country. They are using a link to my TGP reputation. It leads here: https://forums.theglobalparadise.com/threads/chards-cashrep-thread.680/ It's stupid for a scammer to use cashapp because it's restricted to the US, yet they are using my location in their bio which is Madoc, Ontario, Canada. Where cashapp is banned. Lol.
    And, I'm sorry, I thought you were asking for evidence-in which I showed you a profile blatantly copying mine, and you can even see it yourself. Can you please be more clear, because I don't understand.

    This is where the link takes you, it's my reputation thread. The steam that is linked to the reputation thread is: https://steamcommunity.com/id/z1y/, which is my steam URL. The impersonator, in his bio,
    -links this thread. https://forums.theglobalparadise.com/threads/chards-cashrep-thread.680/
    It's a CASH reputation thread. He does not own it, as you can see from the first image of the actual site, MY url is linked there, AND HIS DOES NOT MATCH!!! This proves he does not own the reputation. Reputation on steam is used as a way to keep yourself safe from scams, and if someone pretends it's theirs, someone will trust this person that is not actually reputable. By doing this, he can deceive people in to sending him items and him dipping out on a deal he agreed on. This shows intent to defraud.

    It is also, the "victim" in this steamrep report is linked /id/z1y, and the ID linked on the rep page is also /id/z1y. This is how you know it is me.

    Every TGP Forum account is linked with a steam account, so by going on my reputation thread at that link, you can also just click my steam account below the Forum username to go directly to my profile that the impersonator is impersonating.

    The screenshots of everything was what I was after - I understood what you were getting at but you have to pretend that anyone else looking at this report has no clue what you are explaining and we all know that images make a difference plus they retain that evidence for a later time if needed.
    I'll review this again later - no need to reply again
    thanks
