    Scam Report

    Report Type: DO NOT SUBMIT TO STEAMREP - Phishing or suspicious link
    Virtual item type involved: [TF2] Team Fortress 2 Items

    Accused profile: 76561198870744432

    Victim profile: 76561198285548469

    What happened? Description:
    He added me from one of my bp.tf listings, he then asked me to use a odd sounding "price checking" method (tf2misty). A simple google search showed that this was a well known account phishing lure/scam.​

    Provide Evidence:
    As soon as I called him on the scam, he deleted me off his friends list. It was obvious he knew he was made, as well, his bp.tf has quite a bit of -rep, not that I expect it to be taken as evidence for this offense, but it isn't a good sign. I hope this helps to keep the community a little bit cleaner.​
