    Accused profile: 76561198176954605

    Victim profile: 76561198176954605

    What happened? Description:
    He added me and asked if i was trading my unusual hat. I told him that I would for 8 buds, to which he said okay. He said that he wanted to make sure that the hat was not duped and that he wanted me to trade it to a friend. I brought my friend into the chat and he acted as a middle man, but the scammer was making a profile similar to my friend's as we spoke. the hat was passed back and forth and it ended up with the scammer. The steam account of the fake friend is http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198176953249

    Provide Evidence:
    The Scammer impersonated my friend while my real friend was acting as a middle man in our trade. The reports on his steamrep show that he has done this before.​
