Scam Report Report Type: [Rep Fraud] Impersonation with intent to defraud Virtual item type involved: [TF2] Team Fortress 2 Items Accused profile: 76561198295261711 Victim profile: 76561198043693071 What happened? Description: Scam type: Impersonation & Fraud Scam Context: Contacted me and suggested that I sell my stuff on Marketplace.tf, I had heard of Marketplace and know that it is a trusted place. However, I do believe that this user had foul intent, as he asked me if I had signed into the site and I said yes. As soon as that happened a bunch of Marketplace bots, started adding me for my items so I could trade them on the site. Being the absolute idiot that I am, I checked the Steam accounts and found that they were all in the Marketplace.tf Steam group, so I went ahead with the trade. I’ve learnt my lesson the hard way. Steam Profile URL: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198295261711/ (◄FA†MAN►) <- Current name at the moment. This person is basically the front man who got the scam rolling. This person is currently banned on Steamrep for impersonating, I may be wrong, but this might be another case of this happening with this user. SteamRep URL: https://steamrep.com/search?q=http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198295261711/ I think that this person was waiting for the right time to get his other accounts to send trade requests, hence him asking constantly “have you done that”, etc, etc, ergo impersonating a reputable trading website and other Steam users. Bot list: - Marketplace.TF | Bot 08 Steam Profile URL: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198328471977 - Marketplace.TF | Bot 29 Steam Profile URL: https://steamcommunity.com/id/MarketplaceBot12321 - Marketplace.TF | Bot 29 Steam Profile URL: https://steamcommunity.com/id/marketpalcebot - Marketplace.TF | Bot 35 Steam Profile URL: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198834932559/ Extra Info: He also impersonated this user: (◄FA†MAN►) Steam Profile URL: https://steamcommunity.com/id/Thenotsofat-Fatman/ This was when they sent me “their” Backpack.tf page, when he asked me what I wanted for my unusual. I didn’t think anything of it, everything looked the same and legit, at first. I contacted Josh Coffey [Steam Profile Name: Geel] (the person who created Marketplace.tf), and he banned these bots from their Steam group, unfortunately they are all fakes. So, that's confirmed. Geel’s Steam URL: https://steamcommunity.com/id/geel9 FYI: The chat log screenshot has him nicknamed as "scammer", I did this after the deed had been done. Please reply/message me for more info that you may need.
