    Scam Report

    Report Type: [Money] PayPal scam or scam attempt
    Virtual item type involved: [TF2] Team Fortress 2 Items

    Accused profile: 76561198167294208

    Victim profile: 76561198150058632

    What happened? Description:
    Got an australium grenade launcher. They offered to buy it for $35. I looked through his profile, rep.tf and steamrep, all seemed to check out with a history of trustworthy trades. We went through with the trade, since im new to this and don;t have any rep from the past, he asked if I could send the trade item first. I accepted and sent it, he sent a screenshot after with the paypal thing to confirm that it was my paypal email. I confirmed it and they said they were sending it. 5ish minutes passed and I did not get any message in gmail or paypal. Checked again, he didn't respond. He went offline so I checked a few hours later. When I messaged him i still had no payment and it errored when i messaged him. I went to his profile and friend requested, and steam said that he blocked me.​

    Basically a new paypal activity screenshot taken after this post.
    Another exactly as I described of the trade inventory history. The one you gave recently there didn't have the hover where it shows the steam profile URL at the bottom of the screen for that steam account - this is basically the same thing as you would if you put your mouse cursor over any link on a web browser it shows that link location.

    The link I gave you has two examples at the bottom of what it should do/look like.

    Be sure you read that link completely also any other links/policies we've given prior to submitting the report.

    I need it unedited - you can either follow procedure explained on the screenshot guide or you can send it to me in a PM..whichever works.
