    What happened? Description:
    This was actually a hilarious scam attempt.
    So here's what happened:
    A random steam account adds you as a friend, has good comments and an average steam level. Asked me if my knife is for sale and if I would trade for real money. After checking his account it was obvious from the description that he is doing the old paypal refund scam. I decided to ask him if he would trade with bitcoins, to which he agreed if I'm the one who makes the first move.
    Now the fun part begins: - I asked for a proof of the existence of his bitcoin account and he sent me this : http://i.imgur.com/EV9Kh80.png (image of his link in the evidence pictures)
    Looks good right? Well after a quick google image lookup. the same image popped several times on different websites such as: http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2013/04/what-is-bitcoin-explained.(site with same image in the evidence pictures)

    After telling him that, he quickly blocked me and went offline with empty hands.
