    Scam Report

    Report Type: [Money] PayPal scam or scam attempt
    Virtual item type involved: [DOTA2] Dota2 Items

    Accused profile: 76561198412195064

    Victim profile: 76561198027642729

    What happened? Description:
    Started as a typical post I made on the r/dota2trade forums willing to trade 3 arcanas for upto $70 in paypal money. The post is linked below.

    https://www.reddit.com/r/Dota2Trade/comments/c04y0k/h_pudge_rubick_pa_arcana_w_70_paypal/

    The user contacted me through reddit direct messages offering to buy my items. The screenshot labelled trade 4, shows his correspondence to me. We at first agreed to use a middleman where I would pay the fees. However when it came to steam chat and waiting for a middle man. The scammer indicated to me that he would go first as it was midnight and he wanted to be done with it.

    I did feel a little uneasy at this, but to make sure I had records, I made him record the complete statement in our steam chat, that he agreed to our transaction.

    He paid me the money and I sent him a trade offer that he accepted. Less than 12 hours later he has filed a claim on paypal stating he has not received the item. I request the accused be marked, along with his reddit account being black listed and banned from the trade subs. So that he can never scam another player again.​

    Provide Evidence:
    Here is all the evidence.

    Trade 1-2 showcases our steam conversation

    Trade 3 showcases his payment where I forced him to leave the note of forfeiting his right to refund

    Trade4 shows his messages to me via reddit

    Trade5 shows the completed trade where I sent him the items View attachment 717642 View attachment 717639 View attachment 717640 View attachment 717644 View attachment 717639 View attachment 717640 View attachment 717642 View attachment 717643 View attachment 717644 View attachment 717643

    @Poly 2
    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. Also need a screen shot of your Paypal ACTIVITY (not Summary) for several days beginning with the date before this trade.. full screen DO NOT edit this shot in anyway. Upload HERE…NOT imgur, NOT gyazo or any other 3rd party hosting site!

    Review this screenshot guide to help you:

    Hello, I've added the relevant evidence, however I can not get the hypertext popup to show up when I hover over the username in the trade history screenshot

    All I have is the tiny highlight at the bottom of the page with his URL

    I have my task bar automatically hide itself when its not active. I hope that isn't a problem
