    Scam Report

    Report Type: [Other] Any other fraudulent behavior
    Virtual item type involved: [TF2] Team Fortress 2 Items

    Accused profile: 76561198312571225

    Victim profile: 76561198083655482

    What happened? Description:
    Apologies if I have this miscategorized, I wasn't sure which option was appropriate so I played it safe and put it in the "Other" category.

    Me and the person had only known each other for a few weeks and had only talked once before after initially meeting to smooth over and in-game altercation

    The user approached me with the claim that he had accidentally reported me for having duped items when he meant to report someone else. He then provided a link to a user named "Akbu" (dead link provided below), whom he said I should talk to to clarify the situation. There was not, however, any option to add this person, and a few minutes later the profile disappeared. The person, of course, denied it was a scam, but some web-searching revealed similar experiences from other people. I took a few moments to make sure my account was secure, and shortly thereafter the person went offline. I have not heard from the person since.

    Dead link to the account of "Akbu": https://steamcommunity.com/id/32434...YqfVNsBzlHrgCdbKJMBjkmHiFu4nn3AqKMQJ2SEJIrGwA

    I realized I never provided proof of the scammer's identity. Hopefully this is sufficient.

    Ok so its possible the accused was hijacked..do you have other means of contacting them outside of steam?
    Also you failed to provide info on the user they told you to add..that is important.. please provide the ID64 or SR profile block asap!
    @Chromica

    Also make sure you've reported the account to Valve - they will act on it fast if it was hijacked!
