    Scam Report

    Report Type: [Rep Fraud] Impersonation with intent to defraud
    Virtual item type involved: [TF2] Team Fortress 2 Items

    Accused profile: 76561198325113541

    Victim profile: 76561198057680020

    What happened? Description:
    A friends account told me they had accidentally reported me for item duping, saying he'd talked to a steam admin about it and that I just needed to talk to them as well to confirm. He sent me a link to the steam rep, which I was suspicious of and searched for the name instead and found and added them.
    They message me and ask how they can help, I describe how my friend had accidentally reported me and he answered he would check my account status. He sends me a gif of what looks like steam and my profile, with an error sign next to my name. He opens up admin tools and shows I have a pending deletion on my account.
    He tells me he just needs to verify my items and requests my steam trade link, which I send him. He sends me a trade request for all my tf2 tradeable items and that's when I've confirmed it's a scam.
    GDR starts a countdown to my account deletion which will stop if I accept the trade deal. Now neither the friends account or the "steam rep" answers my messages.

    Judging by my friends account age and the games he has on it I doubt he's the one actually talking, and that his account has been hijacked but that is for steam themselves to figure out as I've reported the account for being hijacked.​

    Give me a sec , I will check your steam account status

    https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd....651/4CA75F7F5CAB1DA99BC3EAFCA958632A30344527/

    I have noticed that you have a pending deleting account report issued on your profile, random user(s) reported you for having duplicated items.

    [22:54]
    Felixlova:
    yeah that would be him accidentally reporting me

    [22:55]
    ɢᴅʀ sᴋᴜʟʟ:
    Are you aware that if you cant prove yourself here that your item is in good condition your account will be deleted on steam permanently?

    [22:56]
    Felixlova:
    how would I prove that?

    [22:56]
    ɢᴅʀ sᴋᴜʟʟ:
    May you please send me your trade offer link so I can check if you really are involved

    [22:56]

    trade offer link?

    ɢᴅʀ sᴋᴜʟʟ:
    Yes sir

    you mean to a trade offer I've made?

    ah

    [22:58]
    ɢᴅʀ sᴋᴜʟʟ:
    All you need to do here is to make an appeal and prove that your item is in a good condition and it was a false accusation so that I will cancel the pending deletion in your account is that clear?

    [22:58]
    Felixlova:
    how do I make an appeal and how would I prove the items are proper?

    You don't have to worry here if you really are not involved in the said issue. I will remove the pending deletion in your account understood?

    Felixlova:
    "Steam Admins will never want your items for a check or anything, "Item verification" is also fake and doesn't exist, even "Item duplication" is not possible.Note this video was not created by me!"

    Thats why I am here to check and clarify if the said report is true or false and all you need to do here is prove that the reported item(s) are in good condition so I can remove the pending deletion in your account, alright?

    This is NOT the first user you should be reporting - You basically reported the other user that was brought into the scam event. You must make sure from now on you report the FIRST user you were contacted by and who started the scam..you only need to reference any other accounts involved and describe HOW they were involved in the description by including the FULL SR profile block along with details of how they were involved.
    Also include any and all FULL screenshots you have as evidence.
    Please do not resubmit a new report - this one will do for now.

    All the screenshots I've provided are full, and it's the entire chatlogs with both accounts. I can't provide a screenshot of GDR SKULL's profile because he has probably blocked me now, but you have that up above.

    This would be the account that contacted me first
