  1. Scam Report

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

    Accused profile: 76561198318893421

    Victim profile: 76561198121359800

    What happened? Description:
    Caroline one night messages me asking for a loan of 10 keys to purchase an all class footprints spelled cosmetic. I lend her 10 keys and the following day, she asks me for another 20 keys due to not realizing the item she wanted to purchase costed 30 keys. I was reluctant to lend her any more keys at first due to her already owing me 10 keys from the day before and I myself needed the keys to purchase an item I was interested in. She promises she wouldn't borrow the keys for long and that she'll get them back within 5 minutes and that the seller was waiting on her. I lent her another 20 keys because she promised to get them back within 5 minutes; a quick resell for profits I assumed. After lending her 30 keys; she stays in invisible mode so I could never join her in-game and ignores my messages. When my friends tell me she is on the unusual trade server and is active; as soon as I join into the server, she becomes "away from keyboard" and leaves the server. This person constantly ignores me and avoids me. I was also willing to wait longer if she needed more time to pay me back but she continuously leaves me in the dark and avoids me.​

    Please refer to the images below.​

    WavySzeto:
    hey caroline; don't mean to be rude, im just curious as to when you plan on returning the 30 keys
    i don't mind if you need a bit more time, just thought youd update me aout it atleast

    [Yesterday, 7:33 PM]
    WavySzeto:
    look caroline; you did say:[9/14/2020, 10:17 PM]Caroline: Oh, I won't borrow them for long dearie I'll get them all back in 5 minutes I'm just waiting for them So you can buy the viewfinders now too

    [Yesterday, 7:39 PM]
    WavySzeto:
    Its been about 2 weeks since you have borrowed the 30 keys. You've been ignoring me. Every time you're on firepowered and I join in hopes to get a hold of you, you leave. My friends on that server have noticed that as well. If you don't reply in the next 12-24 hours, I will report you on all platforms. Including trade server staff members such as firepowered, vatican, etc. I have the physical proofs of chats and trades. I hate to be this guy as I am very understanding, but I will do this if I have to. If you simply need more time, just let me know. Leaving me in the dark is not helpful. Otherwise ignoring and avoiding me is just as bad as running away with the keys. I will take actions and have you marked and known as a scammer.

    Don't review mobile screenshots very much at all so please don't submit them unless asked.
    So you are reporting someone for you lending items yet you never got a date/time when you were supposed to receive them back?
    Even one just said "soon" soon could be days/weeks/months/years who knows.

    Lastly can you explain these 3 reports against your alt account?

    Oh, I won't borrow them for long dearie I'll get them all back in 5 minutes I'm just waiting for them

    She said 5 minutes
  5. Those 3 are from 7 years ago; I was immature and I've paid most of them a key back 6 years ago. It's been a while.
  6. I also didn't mean to post #2, the main files for evidence are: 1, 9, 10, 11, 12, 21, 22, 23

    Correct - they did say that. Didn't see it or over looked it.
    What contact have you tried lately? Any new messages? Any friends of them you both have that have tried any contact?
  8. I have tried messaging Caroline, and clearly she has been ignoring me because my friends tell me she is active on a trade server at the time. As soon as I join my friends who are on the same server as her, she goes "afk" and then leaves the server.

    Ok in the meantime with these reports respond to each one showing where you paid the users back pls...I'll give you the benefit of the doubt to show where things were made right.
  10. So you want me to add each of those users and provide chat proof of them remembering my payment from 6 years ago?

    You can go back to your trade history of those events - it goes all the way back.
  12. ..but I no longer have access to my alt, I gave it away to a schoolmate a long long time ago

    I need to see any and all attempts of communication with this person for the next 24hours be it over steam, in a trade server, friends also that may have attempted - FULL screenshots each time.
  14. I've attached 4 images below as proof that she was active the past 2 days. This is all I have as of now but I will acquire more if the opportunity comes across.

  15. Saw Caroline join the Unusual Trade Server - Firepowered. She joined spectator and proceeded to leave within minutes.
  16. These are the screenshots.

    while I wait for a while longer to see if accused responds - take a new full screenshot of each trade open in a web browser, hover your mouse pointer over usersname each time so it shows their steam URL at the bottom. Also one thru steam client , make sure client URL is enabled and all 3 screenshots are FULL screen. Do not edit/do not crop in anyway!
  19. Just making sure: you want to see the trade histories on a web browser and Steam?
