    Scam Report

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

    Accused profile: 76561198853076769

    Victim profile: 76561198044251420

    What happened? Description:
    I put my listing up for a Purple Confetti Swagman's Swatter for 14 keys and they added me seconds after when I went to check their inventory for items it was private and their profile features a link to 76561198044251420's backpack and he was also being suspicious with asking me to "price check", he immediately removed me after I said I had six years trading experience. Weird.​

    Provide Evidence:
    I have linked several screenshots which show conclusive evidence of an impersonation attempt. The chat log is in "first text" and "Second text" and the profiles of the accused and victim are featured alongside the original listing. The original listing clearing said 14 keys so there to be no confusion on pricing and there is no reason for him to ask for "price verification" on sites such as marketplace.tf or a site i've never heard of tf2price.com and i dared not to check it.​
