    @kemos Please don't give us CUSTOM URL's - they can change at anytime....in fact that user steamDev doesn't work no more so we can't find them now.
    Always FULL SR profile blocks.
    Want to try to find them again? I don't think you will but give it a shot

    @kemos You were clearly online after I asked that last question and did not answer.

    @ЩĄ | Horse Sorry for the late reply.These few days I am trying to trace back to the impersonator's account.i've tried multiple methods like using steamrep archive and other websites archive but have no result.I even tried finding his account from localconfig.vdf file but i still could not get a result. It seems like the account have mysteriously "disappear" and i have no way to trace it back.At the very least I have reported that person for attempted trade.If there is other things that i can do to help do reply and I will surely give you a reply as soon as possible this time.(I thought since i could not get the impersonator's ID this is a gone case so i did not follow up the reply here)
