    Scam Report

    Report Type: [Money] PayPal scam or scam attempt
    Virtual item type involved: [TF2] Team Fortress 2 Items

    Accused profile: 76561198314160142

    Victim profile: 76561198271964828

    What happened? Description:
    Contacted me about purchasing my war paint and after some haggling we agreed on a price. Although I recommended using a safer site in order to avoid being scammer, I was persuaded by him otherwise. It's going on a week and he seems to be dodging any proof or questions I have about the payment he "sent" several days back, and will not provide evidence of his own. This transaction was worth 950 dollars, and I have extensive evidence to support my claim.
    Item in question was an "Isotope Unusual Electroshocked War paint (factory new)".

    I am not 100% about him not being able to pay for reasons beyond his control, but I have no choice but to report him. I will attempt to make contact with you if either the item is returned or the money is provided.​

    Provide Evidence:



    and for reference, this is the only screenshot I have received back from him. He keeps avoiding my attempts to get something more accurate

    TEG:
    Yes, but what you dont know is how many cases I did open to get there (spent probably around 300 on cases and get barely a thing out of it) before hand over time. Also, and I am very sorry for this, but just because I got an item doesnt mean im willing to undersell it for what it's worth

    [Saturday 20:42]

    fine then
    I will do it
    oh

    [Saturday 20:43]

    TEG:
    For when you're up since our timezones are f✿✿✿ed, here's what you need to do.

    Cancel your transaction and/or take it back or whatever because it hasn't come through. Then, try re-sending it to the same account ( [email protected] ) . I still have some faith that you're not a scammer. Good luck.

    That was the screenshot to prove it hasn't come through. Again, you are needed to Revoke the payment and Re-send it as a gift. I know you have other things going on in your life, but this is nearly a grand we're talking about, get it sorted will you please?

    ALL evidence must be hosted HERE to the report not 3rd party hosting locations like discord.
    Do that on next reply please.
    Also explain the transaction better - what payment method..how much, for what items exactly. Does the chat show this agreement in it?

    Alright then, Ill post them AGAIN.

    The transaction, as mentioned, was to be over PayPal. The funds were to be sent over PayPal. The Item in question, the "Unusual Electroshocked Warpaint (Isotope effect, factory new condition) was traded via steam. The payment was SUPPOSED to be 950 American Dollars. The chat shows SPECIFICALLY that we agreed on PayPal and that the funds were to be sent to my specific PayPal account. The images submitted show this. Additionally, this is the most recent list of ALL paypal transactions sent to my account, proving to you that there's been no transaction.

    I don't see anywhere that you gave this user your paypal address to send a payment to in the chats you provided.

    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:

    I tried the whole "hover over their name" thing, and it didn't really work like you said it would (no hypertext popup in any way shape or form). HOWEVER, I did put a side by side screenshot of their profile page. Im still working on getting the paypal image now, but for now here's the first half of what you asked for

    Here's the paypal image you requested

    I'd like to mention I'm conversing with this guy to try to get my item back, and if he DOES return it I will inform you (though if he IS a scammer, I doubt I have much of a chance)

    I don't need a Paypal PDF.. just screenshot the activity as requested as you are logged in.

    2 things
    1) im still working on the PayPal history, ill get back to you ASAP on it (it's legit a problem of "I don't remember the password" on this computer, and as such can only access it on the phone and another PC)
    2) sorry about this guy's custom URL.
