Scam Report Report Type: [Rep Fraud] Impersonation with intent to defraud Virtual item type involved: [CSGO] Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Items Accused profile: 76561198406697622 Victim profile: 76561198000881707 What happened? Description: He added me on Steam claiming he "wanted to talk". Then proceeded to offer some knives in exchange for my Karambit Fade as well as a USP-S Kill Confirmed. I then started to read through his profile and noticed he was claiming to be Artur Minacov (Co-Founder of OPSkins) and I confronted him about this. Obviously, he could not back up his claim and had to unfriend me after making a bunch of excuses. His inventory is private so there's no way to know if he actually has the items he's offering. He changes his custom URL after every attempt so his profile is not easily found. Do not add this person, do not trade with him. Provide Evidence: 3 Screenshots provided as well as chatlog. firsou: Yes? Mladen_92: hi sir firsou: Hey, what do you want? Mladen_92: i just want to talk to you sir firsou: Can I help you with anything?

Mladen_92: trading only sir Mladen_92: we both exchange for my 3 knives to your ★ Karambit | Fade and USP-S | Kill Confirmed Mladen_92: it is fair right? firsou: Why the USP-S Kill Confirmed, seems kinda odd. Mladen_92: to make it fair Mladen_92: ah ok sir only your karambit fade for my 3knives it is ok? firsou: I don't mind it, I just think it's weird that you want a 30 euros item as well. firsou: My fade is worth at least 700-800 USD. Mladen_92: soo my 3knives is not enough sir? firsou: Well, depending on their condition and patterns, I doubt they'd be worth as much. Mladen_92: How about my ★ Karambit | Lore (Field-Tested) and ★ M9 Bayonet | Autotronic( Field-Tested) Mladen_92: that 2 knives sir? Mladen_92: To your Karambit fade and USP pistol? Mladen_92: i think that was fair now firsou: Why do you claim to be the Co-Founder of OPSkins on your profile. Mladen_92: yes, its because i'm currently using OPSkins for reselling h1z1, tf2 and csgo items. Mladen_92: what do you think for my offer sir? firsou: So you're impersonating somebody to trade items? Mladen_92: i am not impersonating sir Mladen_92: did you read my information?
