    Scam Report

    Report Type: [Trade Offer Fraud] Using Trade Offer URL fraud
    Virtual item type involved: [Other] Other game items

    Victim profile: 76561198095784193

    What happened? Description:
    Since I am the founder of a very large trade group, I regularly receive random friend requests. I found this particular person extra striking because he sent a request via the Steam comments to add him / her: "hi, can you send me friend request? I can't add you, idk why".

    I sent a friend request and immediately got a very striking message (Beware of this link): "why you didnt confirm my trade? Https://steamtrading.uno/tradeoffer/525335".

    The link looks like a normal tradelink but points to a different domain! I have visited this link in a safe environment and I noticed that the domain is used to simulate the Steam environment. Fake trades are normally done through here to hack accounts. See the details in the screenshots.​

    Unfortunately, SteamRep does not accept reports dealing with hijacking/phishing/hacking -Due to current Investigative Policy
    http://forums.steamrep.com/threads/investigative-policy.140101/

    This includes anything to do with API key requests, wrong or misspelled URL's and sites requesting logins of any type in attempts to steal your credentials.
    These are phishing/hijacking attempts and are not to be reported to SteamRep!

    In order to do that, you have to:
    1. Visit the accuseds profile
    2. Click MORE drop-down located at the top right of the page
