    Scam Report

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

    Accused profile: 76561198342161127

    Victim profile: 76561198092477764

    What happened? Description:
    The user previously unknown to me, added me and asked to trade for my unusual hat. Had me login to a website bitskins.com to "show that my item was tradeable on the site." I traded the website's "bot" my item as if I was listing it for sale. The "bot" the scammer was using then traded me my item back. The scammer then asked to trade for one of my more valuable australium weapons aswell. They asked me to do the same thing with the "bot" that I did with my previous item. I proceeded to trade with the "bot" like I did with my unusual hat, expecting to receive the item back, but the return trade offer was cancelled immediately after the scammer sent it.

    NOTE:
    The info for the bot used in the scam has the following information:

    | steamname: BitSkins #0842 [936]
    | steam3ID: [U:1:1091273056]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:0:545636528
    | steamID64: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561199051538784
    | customURL: https://steamcommunity.com/id/BITSKINSBOT0842
    | steamrep: https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561199051538784

    I had no interaction with the bot outside of the trade offers.​

    Provide Evidence:
    Please refer to screenshots of scammer conversation for the setup of the scam with the website and the "bot" from Bitskins website. Refer to trade offer history to see that the "bot" cancelled the return trade offer for the scattergun, unlike what happened with the 2 previous items from my inventory.​

    [8:27 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    What? Its tradeable, thats how I got it, from a http://marketplace.tf bot

    [8:28 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    yeah im not saying that it isnt marketable or tradeable or duped in general. i just need assurance that it is on bitskins because im planning to sell the unusual there after we trade on steam
    so do you know about bitskins?

    [8:29 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    no I don't
    I'm not sure what would affect its tradeability on bitskins

    [8:29 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    oh okay, bitskins is a big trading site for tf2 traders and I want to check if your unusual is marketable there first before we trade, is that fine with you?
    dont get me wrong though im not going to buy your unusual from the site or with real money, we will trade in steam and im paying 23 keys for it

    [8:30 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    Okay... so we just do the trade then?
    And you are basically asking for a re-exchange if it isn't tradeable on the site?

    [8:30 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    well basically i just wanted to see your unusual listed on the site first so i will know its marketable because im planning to sell the unusual there after we trade in steam, is that ok with you?
    uh no that's not what i mean
    and im not asking you to give me your unusual first so i could check, that's not what i mean either

    [8:31 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    So you are asking me to list it on the site

    [8:32 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    yeah but not for sale since im not buying your unusual from the site. so can you go to bitskins .com or google it to make sure, then sign in your steam there. tell me when you're done so i can help you out alright
    also dont go to the other bitskins that dont have .com with it because those are fake sites and always double check the spelling of bitskins ok. just letting you know

    [8:32 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    bitskins got it
    When I get to the steam login confirm page it says http://bitskins.co
    even though the broswer site is saying .com

    [8:34 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    yeah that's fine it's the same thing. try typing in bitskins .com in your address bar

    [8:35 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    Yeah I did that, I'm talking about when I go to sign through steam
    it redirects me to the steam sign in page
    and it says http://bitskins.co
    not .com

    [8:35 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    oh i see. dw it isnt a fake site. you'll know if it is if it asks for your login the 2nd time after you logged in your steam

    [8:36 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    Oh so a second login request means its a fake site?

    [8:36 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    yeah you can also try typing in bitskins .co in your address bar it'll redirect to the .com site
    they're the same site

    [8:37 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    okay so .co and .com are both used by the site

    [8:37 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    yeah

    Most Wanted:

    [8:38 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:

    [8:39 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    that's indeed lucky lol
    good for you
    right so have you signed into bitskins so we can continue?

    [8:40 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    Yeah I just finished the email verif and trade url thing

    [8:40 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    ok so now click the SELL ITEMS button at the top right and tell me when you're there

    [8:41 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    ok i'm there

    [8:41 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    when you're there, dont do anything with your unusual yet or you might list it for sale, i cant check if it's marketable there if you do that
    i'll show you what i mean about listing it as marketable because it works differently here and so you'll know the site is safe and you can trust it later on ok
    so first click the CUSTOM button at the Pricing section
    and then choose a cheap item from your inventory to use for testing the site, any cheap item ok

    [8:41 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    ok

    [8:41 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    after that the site will ask you to set the price so put 999 or any higher price and hit OK
    tell me when that's all done because i need to explain something to you afterwards ok

    [8:42 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    alright, can it be a refined metal?

    [8:42 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    yeah any tradeable item

    [8:42 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    okay i did that

    [8:42 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    ok after that you'll see the green "Send me a trade offer" button at the right side of the page
    but i dont want you to click that button ok

    [8:43 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    yeah i see that

    [8:43 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    just ignore that button please, never press that

    [8:43 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    ok..

    [8:43 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    because if you'll press that, i wont be able to check if it's marketable from there since im not buying your stuff here
    you get me?

    [8:43 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    yeah i havent pressed it

    [8:43 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    ok so what's the cheap item you've chosen so i can check it on the site as well
    you can see the name of the item there it hink
    think*

    [8:43 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    candy cane

    [8:44 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    ok so now you just need to wait for your item to reach the Sales queue box at the bottom right of the page that shows your item like this "Candy Cane @ $999"
    so if you see your item at the Sales queue then you'll wait for the site to send you an offer automatically for the item you're listing as marketable
    so if you see your item's name at the Sales queue then go check your steam trade offers, see if the site has sent any
    you get me?

    [8:45 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    yeah
    how quick does it show up on the feed?

    [8:45 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    you dont have to press anything, just let the site detect your item once it reaches the Sales queue
    right so do you see your item being shown like this? "Candy Cane @ $999"
    if you do that means your item is at the Sales queue and it's been detected by the site

    [8:45 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    I mean i don't but I might have missed it
    i do see a trade offer with site bot
    for the item

    [8:46 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    yeah go ahead and accept the offer from the site so you'll know how it works and how you'll get your item back from it
    go ahead
    the Sales queue is just beneath the green button, you should see your item being shown "Your item @ $999"
    because that indicates that the site has detected your item to list it as marketable
    so have you done the trade with the site?

    [8:47 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    yeah it just sent me a trade for the item back

    [8:48 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    yeah so after trading with the site, the site will then send you an offer back with your item in the trade
    so you can get your item back whenever you want or need it back

    [8:48 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    okay

    [8:48 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    so like after trading with the site, keep checking your steam offers often alright

    [8:48 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    so that is done

    [8:48 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    yep so go get your item back from the site then
    and after that go back to the site and remove your item from the Sales queue by pressing the X button next to it

    [8:48 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    so now you are saying to do this with the unusual?
    okay I removed from the sales queue
    The send trade offer thing above sales queue is to actually put the item up for sale on the site?

    [8:49 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    yeah instantly put it up for sale but i dont want you to do that because im not buying your unusual here. we'll be trading on steam
    ok so now can you do the same thing with your unusual so i can check that it's marketable here? then we'll head back to steam and trade afterwards

    [8:50 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    okay

    [8:50 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    just make sure to set the price to $999 or any high price for it
    and remember dont press the "Send me a trade offer" button because i wont be able to check if it's marketable there
    are you fine with all that?

    [8:50 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    yeah I just put it in the queue

    [8:51 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    so should i check it now or not yet?

    [8:51 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
    do I need to trade it to the bot first?

    [8:51 PM]
    Most Wanted:
    yeah same thing you did with your cheap item so you're able to list it as marketable, you remember the steps to that right?
    have you done the trade? because i'll check on the site now if it's up

    [8:51 PM]
    1nvariate_terminus:
