    What happened? Description:
    Hello! My question is if you could help me out with a tradescam wich occured : 2015-08-15

    This guy ( http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198209554169 ) (his real account http://steamcommunity.com/id/Rolex183484) messaged me on steam and wanted to offer steammoneycard from G2A.com for my knife. After I made a trade on ''csgo lounge'' wanted he to add me and talk on skype. At this moment I thought he was legit and not a scammer so I trusted him. We talked for a few minutes and he said he wanted to record me sending him a tradeoffer, so I started screensharing on skype and he said it didnt work. After that he wanted me to download a program which he said would work and he would see my screen. I went on to download the program and I sent the tradeoffer as he commanded me. Somehow he took control of my mouse and accepted the trade which contained my knife (Gut knife Scorched) and my M4a1-S Nitro via email and blocked me on steam and skype. (link to the program https://www.teamviewer.com/en/index.aspx) Greetings - Joel Hedlund​

    Provide Evidence:
    I attached the trade-scam which is the one first on the tradelist, I didnt screenshot the chat but my friend did, he used the same metod as he used on me! View attachment 307529 View attachment 307531

    Your items are probbably lost for ever. Steam rep cant recover than sadly. Nothing can be really done here be expect admin giving him scammer tag. I can give you few advices about trading like that.

    -Never download anything, dont even open link
    -Never ever use team viewer. The porpuse of this program is mostly giving your computer acess to other people.
    -If someone ''hacks'' in your computer and takes controll over you, you can always un-plug it from internet or from power supply (in case if its PC and not laptop)

    This has nothing do with me. I did not receive a knife from you nor did I talk to you. This is completely uncalled for and ask you to file a report against "El Kappa" and not me.

    I'd advise you report BOTH the involved and insure proper evidence. You're also encouraged to petition to steam support explain to them the same thing you explained to us here, and I'm sure they can help. Tell them specifically to check chat logs of him requesting you to download Teamviewer. Tell them you had no clue what it did, and he hijacked your pc. I also encourage you to uninstall Teamviewer. Never download ANYTHING anyone sends you. EVER

    Thanks for help @Develop @alkon7 I guess you learn from your mistakes as Im not a frequent trader. @Rolex3 yes I know that you have nothing to do with this beacause i reported "Rolex" and not you "Rolex3". The accused even has "El Kappa" on his friendslist AND the link on his profile ("El Kappa") reffers to ANOTHER Rolex. Why does it exist 2 almost identical profiles on steamrep? And why does the two accounts ( one level 10 and one level 12 ) reffer to the same steamrep (level 10) account?

    @Rolex3 if you are not affiliated with this scam/event why would you defend "Rolex"?

    they have automatic systems which link the two accounts

    Bollocks. I'm not associated with that account whatsoever, and an admin will tell you I'm not.

    Rolex your defensive replies shows you are caught and using another user to scam players. You even have another person on your profile with the accused profile of Rolex. You are the one scamming using a suppose fake account yet that account is on your friends lists
