    Scam Report

    Report Type: [Money] PayPal scam or scam attempt
    Virtual item type involved: [TF2] Team Fortress 2 Items

    Accused profile: 76561198393298805

    Victim profile: 76561198047558675

    What happened? Description:
    This user responded to my advertisement on backpack.tf forums where I am looking to sell keys. After performing all the rudimentary backpack.tf and steamrep checks, he seemed okay to sell to and had some trade rep.

    After performing an initial sell of 20 keys to him with him going first, he successfully completed it. Screenshots of the first trade are provided. After that came the 130 key trade, which he did not pay for and subsequently ran off with. This all happened over the course of several days, with the latest scam happening just today.

    This is a very horrible mark on my own record and was all my fault. The group I am part of currently has an application for Friend Community open, and this scam has only strengthened my resolve to do the right thing and catch scams before they happen.​

    Please let me know if there are any other screenshots needed! I should have added that catching scams before they happen is one part, but responding to a scam that happened appropriately is another part which I hope to partake in effectively and enthusiastically.

    Please provide a full screen shot of your Trade Inventory History (thru a computer not mobile) showing for sure the trade in question(NOT TRADE OFFER!!)- open this with a web browser, move your mouse over the users name in question so it shows up the hypertext popup URL at the bottom of the screen - take the screen shot DO NOT edit it in anyway and upload.
