    What happened? Description:
    This user added me offering to buy my unusual. They tried to get me to put my account info into two different phishing sites under the guise of having to get an “index number” for the unusual, but I convinced them to try something else. Then, the user told me to get my item checked by a “bitskins admin”, the user listed below who sent me a trade offer for my unusual.

    Since the report only allows for 15 photos, the trade offer is here.

    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!
    As soon as the user suggested this its completely INVALID and not acceptable to report here. As you can see the user gave you the phishing site it prompts for a fake steam login - therefore phishing and not to be reported here.

    You can report the user to Valve instead
    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
    3. Choose REPORT VIOLATION
    4. Select the violation, then describe it and provide the evidence
    5. Click SUBMIT REPORT
