    Scam Report

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

    Accused profile: 76561198159820660

    Victim profile: 76561198102562006

    What happened? Description:
    This is the person he's impersonating: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198003724587
    He added me out of nowhere, wanting to buy my ususual hat. He posted a link to the backpack of the guy I linked above, and now I understood it was a scam, and decided to play along. I said he could buy it for 18 keys and sent a trade link, but he didn't respond. Instead he wanted me to contact a "Active Community Fraud Prevention Director" to make sure the items weren't duped. I added the so called director, and was put in a group chat. He then sent a trade offer link to a fake steam item bot, and asked me to send a trade offer with the hat, on the premise that the bot would only check that item and the items would never leave my inventory. I sent a cheap cosmetic case and outed myself.​

    Provide Evidence:
    Since I am not allowed to post more than 15 images, I have linked all the images to this google drive folder: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Zc8xEecdiMaGSGm9vD_2ewomWWBJA5LH

    I know it is not supposed to be accepted, but what else can I do?​

    Who is the user they suggested you add? I need that asap!
    also turn off image embed in steam chat - I can't see any URL's people give you in screenshots.

    ^It appears the second supposed human account is gone, although the fake system database is still up. Am I able to access chats after I am no longer friends with a person? Can't seem to do so.
