    The guy named Krabbit broke a 6 key deal with a group to help get members (1k members), the scam was ridiculous and should be acted upon.​

    Hello, He Breather.
    Care to help me out, but I don't understand the situation.
    You we're planning to buy members (bots) for one key each for a single group?

    No, I wasn't the one planning the trade, my friend had, he just sent me the proof, what had happened was we were planning to give him about 1k members for 6 keys. We did so but he did not pay the keys claiming, "I have them reserved for a raffle."

    He was supposed to pay me, therefore, no, he did not pay at all.
  5. @He Breather Did he you/he received members to your group?

    yes, we had sent members, 500 of the 1000, so we could get payed and then finish
  7. I don't think SR handles this kind of thing since the deal looks shady in general.

    Tagged "Salmon" to correct me if I am wrong.

    For the person who actually traded him the keys, can a screenshot of the inventory history be provided, please.

    So let me get this straight. Basically you were going to receive 6 keys in exchange of giving him 1000 members on that group?

    Also, any more info about this "Raffle" of his available? Either way, i can already tell he wasn't intending to uphold his part of the agreement.

    http://backpack.tf/profiles/76561198171724718 as you can see he has 2 keys already but claims that they are untradeable due to "They are reserved for a raffle"

    In that case, it would have said "Non-tradable Mann Co. Supply Crate Key". The only valid reason it would be non-tradable is that if it were freshly bought from the Steam Marketplace or from the Mann Co store. Even then, it would state the date when it would become tradable (usually 7 days from date of purchase). Also note that the accused has made his backpack private, and the latest cache only shows one of the keys, which is only making it clear he's not willing to uphold his end of the deal.

    Anyway, the screenshot of the victim's inventory history who actually traded the keys would be kindly appreciated, as it will be hard evidence against the accused IF that's how he obtained the keys.

    So we have proof he is scamming, what will happen next? I want to know if steamrep will mark his profile.

    Ultimately, it is up to Steamrep staff to decide if there is enough evidence at hand, or if they will need some more. I'm sure one of them will get to you in a moment.
  13. @He Breather I am not sure whether SR can really do anything since I cannot see any true proof of a scam.
    This also is probs against VALVe and Steam TOS and invites to groups should not be paid for it as it is easy for someone to just leave a group or not join.
    I feel this report is silly, tagged Salmon to have a look.

    Although the agreement is there, depending on the SR admin that handles the report, you may or may not need to provide more evidence.
