Scam Report Report Type: [Rep Fraud] Impersonation with intent to defraud Virtual item type involved: [CSGO] Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Items Accused profile: 76561198345847064 Victim profile: 76561198319551739 What happened? Description: The guy named samalex0 added me and told me to add his main so we can discuss some more trading, once I added his main he sent me an inv link to a random account and claimed it was his which it wasn't. Then when we agreed on the trade he told me I had to validate my items with an Item validator. So he told me to add the admin and he explained the bot thing and how I was basically going to get scammed. I played along with it and took the screenshots of their profile and gathered evidence. - Steam ID block of Alt (BRYL's ALt Account) | steamname: samalex0- TRADING PUBG +50 | steam3ID: [U:1:861788060] | steamID32: STEAM_0:0:430894030 | steamID64: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198822053788 | customURL: https://steamcommunity.com/id/72189739124123 | steamrep: https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198822053788 - Steam ID block of Main account | steamname: BRYL- CSGO|PUBG TRADING +50 | steam3ID: [U:1:385581336] | steamID32: STEAM_0:0:192790668 | steamID64: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198345847064 | customURL: https://steamcommunity.com/id/321543612436512 | steamrep: https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198345847064 - Steam ID block of Fake Valve Admin | steamname: ™ | steam3ID: [U:1:299511297] | steamID32: STEAM_0:1:149755648 | steamID64: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198259777025 | customURL: https://steamcommunity.com/id/3214323411413721 | steamrep: https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198259777025 - Steam ID of Fake item verificator | steamname: Item Database™ | steam3ID: [U:1:853206130] | steamID32: STEAM_0:0:426603065 | steamID64: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198813471858 | customURL: https://steamcommunity.com/id/4356124312 | steamrep: https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198813471858 Provide Evidence: View attachment 654041 View attachment 654042 View attachment 654043 View attachment 654044 View attachment 654045 View attachment 654046 View attachment 654047 View attachment 654048 View attachment 654049 View attachment 654050 View attachment 654051 View attachment 654052 View attachment 654053 Stravata: hey ™: How may I help you?
