1. Multiple games are being used to create fake items for CS:GO, DOTA2, and TF2 that are difficult to differentiate from real ones. Carefully check the game for each item you receive to make sure it's from the game you expect. Pay close attention to any warning messages you see in the trade window about games you haven't played before. Read more.

    Scam Report

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

    Accused profile: 76561198181906939

    Victim profile: 76561198332453694/

    What happened? Description:
    Hey, just a brief report. All the required evidence is present.
    My friend was approached by an impersonator linked below who, as you can see is already marked for scamming here. He is currently impersonating a well known TF2 trader
    Fake: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198169760122/
    Real: https://steamcommunity.com/id/jewlander/

    My friend who I've linked as the victim was told he had to check if his low tier unusual was "a glitched item
    Overpower449: sure?
    Overpower449: check it out on bp
    Jewlander: ohh
    Jewlander: bp.tf can only check if its duped
    Jewlander: duped and glitch are not the same
    Jewlander: glitch items are items that when after the trade session is done the itme it self will disappear

    He was told to send it to me, then the fake Jewlander added me, said to trade it back, and the accused in this report had impersonated my friend asking for it to be traded back.

    Luckily we were prepared for this scenario.

    So the images are in this order-
    1. The accused impersonating my friend Overpower. You can see his ID64 in plain sight.
    2. Hustler impersonating Jewlander, linking his trust rep on his own page.
    3. 2 trade offers I received, 1 from my friend and 1 from the accused​

    Provide Evidence:
    View attachment 648040 That's the accused who has impersonated Overpower after he unfriended me. You're able to see the ID64 and everything.
    View attachment 648038 Hustler impersonating Jewlander, linking his trust rep on his own page. View attachment 648039 2 offers, 1 from impersonator and 1 from friend View attachment 648041 Seconds after the first screenshot, he's changed his image and name and stuff.

    Here's the stuff I uploaded to imgur for sending to Steam

    View attachment 648045 And finally, here's Jewlander asking me to send it back and our conversation went down from there as I started taking the piss and also calling him antisemitic in our group chat.​

    Oh yeah. And here's our group chat, where you can see he's asked me again to send it back. The other member of the group chat is the overpower impersonator, who's name reads Overpower449. with a "." so it wouldn't say (2), I assume. Group chat.PNG

    Your friend was the one that should have made this report but I'll let it stand as is however there is all kinds of issues.
    Who was the user to first contact your friend? Which account impersonated who?
    Who is your friend? SR profile block please

    Okay here, I'll clarify.
    My friend:
    | steamname: Overpower449
    | steam3ID: [U:1:372187966]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:0:186093983
    | steamID64: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198332453694
    | customURL:
    | steamrep: http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198332453694

    My own:
    | steamname: Red
    | steam3ID: [U:1:153675485]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:1:76837742
    | steamID64: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198113941213
    | customURL: http://steamcommunity.com/id/justturnbackifyoureadouchebag
    | steamrep: http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198113941213

    Accused who impersonated overpower, my friend, so I would think I was trading the unusual back to Overpower:
    | steamname: Abujoy
    | steam3ID: [U:1:221641211]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:1:110820605
    | steamID64: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198181906939
    | customURL:
    | steamrep: http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198181906939

    Other scammer who got overpower to first send the item to me (so the impersonator could do his thing). This guy is currently impersonating another Jewlander who I've linked above.
    | steamname: Jewlander
    | steam3ID: [U:1:209494394]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:0:104747197
    | steamID64: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198169760122

    Sorry I thought you could edit replies, should've known better.
    For the comment above with all the steamrep blocks, it'd be in this order: Overpower, Me, Overpowers impersonator, and Scammer.

    - Scammer impersonated Jewlander (this guy https://steamcommunity.com/id/jewlander/) and contacted Overpower asking for him to trade his item to me to make sure it wasnt "glitched".
    - Overpower trades the item to me. We are both expecting this exact scam method because... well I was hustled exactly like this before. We went through with it anyway because tbh I was bored and didn't mind trying out a steamrep report.
    - Overpower's impersonator adds me under a different name.
    - Scammer says okay, now trade it back to Overpower.
    - Overpowers impersonator impersonates Overpowers (pssshhh mindblown!) and sends me a trade offer asking for it back.

    In conclusion, this report was made against Overpowers impersonator, the third SR profile block as it was one of the accounts used in this known scam. The Scammer (Jewlander impersonator, 4th SR block) is already a marked scammer on SR. I reported them both on Steam among like 10 other scammers in the last couple months.

    My friend is relatively new to trading which is why I didn't ask him to write this up.

    Right but the other user contacted you first so you need to check users out better before accepting friend request to avoid this situation in the future.
