    Scam Report

    Report Type: [Money] PayPal scam or scam attempt
    Virtual item type involved: [CSGO] Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Items

    Accused profile: 76561198257020150

    Victim profile: 76561199118996353

    What happened? Description:
    Both Factory new butterfly knife StatTrack 99.5% 0.01 wear and Moto Sport Blood Pressures Minimal Wear 0.013 wear scammed from me, he provided me legitimate information and his account is legitimate so I did not assume he would be a scammer. I was lead to believe that the transaction would be instant via paypal but the payment was delayed but he accepted the tyrade and then said it would be 24hrs till the money cleared. Last night he messaged me one final time claiming that within 24hrs the money would be released but when I awoke today and messaged him I was blocked. If you go into our messages and trade history you can see 2 trades the first being my butterfly knife and the 2nd trade being my gloves. He's taken screenshots of my knife and glove combo and posted it on his profile saying "100% bfk st fade and mw blood pressures". I have also named my knife "Miami Vice" and in the screenshot he posted on his profile you can see my nametag still attached. He's flaunting the facts he's scammed me to his community. Please help me, I worked really hard to get those items and I need the cash at this time as I'm not very well and need to pay for medical fees. I can't believe this has happened to me. I really needed that money but please help me get my items back.​

    [Monday 10:34 PM]
    TokenMal:
    I have no reason to say anything bad, just unfortunate timing

    [Monday 10:35 PM]
    Anfer:

    [Yesterday, 10:21 AM]
    TokenMal:

    Originally you said you wouldn’t accept the trade until money had hit my PayPal

    [Yesterday, 12:49 PM]
    TokenMal:
    Given its early hours in your timezone I can wait, but I trusted you and I'm still yet to receive a dime. I expect this to be resolved within 12hrs

    [Yesterday, 5:53 PM]
    TokenMal:
    Mate whats the hold up? This is extremely unprofressional
    You've accepted both trades and I'm left here waiting anxiously wondering if I've been scammed yet. You need to contact your bank or whatever is restricting you because I shouldn't have to wait like this in all fairness. It's going to be 24hrs in 6hrs times and I've received no payment. This isn't okay.

    [Yesterday, 7:09 PM]
    Anfer:
    Hey
    I was sleeping
    Just got a mail from paypal
    Its gonna be unlimited in 24 hours
    Got that 2 hours ago

    [Yesterday, 8:21 PM]
    Anfer:

    [Yesterday, 8:29 PM]

    Please provide a full screen shot of your Trade Inventory History showing for sure the trade in question(NOT TRADE OFFER!!)- open this with a web browser, move your mouse over the users name in question so it shows up the hypertext popup URL at the bottom of the screen - take the screen shot DO NOT edit it in anyway and upload. Also need a screen shot of your Paypal ACTIVITY (not Summary) for several days beginning with the date before this trade..full screen DO NOT edit this shot in anyway. Upload HERE…NOT imgur, NOT gyazo or any other 3rd party hosting site!

    Also please review this screenshot guide should you require assistance:

    https://forums.steamrep.com/threads/screenshot-guide-requirements.157969/


    Just FYI also - we can not get your items back, Valve will no longer return items from a successful trade either so they are long gone.

    Are these adequate or am I still doing something incorrect? I didn't think you'd be able to get my items back but thanks anyways. I just don't want to put anyone else through what he's done to me.

    Kind regards,

    Milinda

    Here's an extra just in case

    No all screenshots must be thru pc not mobile.
    Also I said a web browser, not steam client. Also any images thru steam client without client URL are unacceptable anyway.
    This is noted on the screenshot guide posted you got a link of before you made the report.
    Please re-read the instructions again carefully and try once more.

    I've done as you asked an enabled client with URL, but now since i've been blocked I can longer get up my chat history with said scammer, the accounts also private now. This is all I can provide now with URLs displayed, I'm unsure what else I can provide you with.

    No - you didn't read clearly what I requested.
    I only noted that if you provide screenshots thru steam client - URL must be enabled but that isn't what I asked for.
    The paypal one is fine at this time.
