    Scam Report

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

    Accused profile: 76561198391195692

    Victim profile: 76561197970799456

    What happened? Description:
    Hi, this impersonator of real fluttershy added me as a friend and tried to pull the tf2 admin, item verification scam. The fluttershy that friended me and tried to scam me has a link in his profile that is linked to the real fluttershy's inventory.

    He made a fair offer for my unusual Pith, asked me how I got it and then said he need to bring in an admin to verify the item.(the previous chat between fluttershy and me has me explaining how I got it and then him stating he needed an admin)

    The screen shots are of the chat between fluttershy and the admin (who I noted was banned by Steamrep) [FP] Dr. McKay. When they tried to get me to submit my pith to a trade link. I did not submit my Pith and called them on the attempted scam. They both quickly left the chat and fluttershy unfriended me.

    I submityted this report earlier but it was rejected because I had no evidence. I happened to find the originbal chat and was able to take sceenshots this time.

    Thanks,
    Ching​
