Scam Report Report Type: [Money] PayPal scam or scam attempt Virtual item type involved: [TF2] Team Fortress 2 Items Accused profile: 76561198212753271 Victim profile: 76561198189534714 What happened? Description: The accused was advertising on a TF2 Unusual Trade Server buying unusuals via paypal. I added him to trade and he had adequate rep, after some discussion, we decided to trade my Scorching Ballcap + Vivid Plasma Bonk Boy for 225 keys or 415 USD. I traded him my two items and he said that he would send me the money promptly, however, after a while he hadn't sent me the money. I asked him about this and he said that his bank was acting up and that he was on the phone. I knew this was suspicious as he was in game. After an hour or two, he still was brushing me off. I finally asked if I could have my items back until he sorted his bank issues. He said okay, but stopped replying after I sent a trade. He said he was driving to work and was using "siri" to message me and couldn't trade. This was an obvious lie because there was no mobile symbol next to his name. However I went along with all this and waited patiently. I began to play some TF2 and after I was done I found that he had removed and blocked me. He changed his profile picture, his name ("Flan" from "Jeff") and his URL to "MyNamaGay". edit: he changed his name back to Flan and made everything public again. Provide Evidence: Unfortunately, because he has unadded me and blocked me, I cannot get the chat. If steamrep/backpack.tf/outpost could get him to add me and show the chat history, it would prove him innocent or guilty. I have trade history showing that he had taken my items with nothing in return. I have some of the chat that I had copied to a friend during my discussion with Flan: yellow johnny: vivid bonk boy + scorching ballcap for 416.25 yellow johnny: USD Flan: how bout just straight 415 yellow johnny: yeah sure You cannot request a new trade while you are still in another trade session.
