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

    Accused profile: 76561199069330659

    Victim profile: 76561198872274338

    What happened? Description:
    The scammer is impersonating me, hijacking account to make it seem like it was me who sent the trade offer. My friends account was hijacked, but we do not report that to steamrep so I just want people to beware that this is not me!​

    Provide Evidence:
    Only proof that shows the account is using the same profile pic and name. The account seems fairly new and has 2 unusuals in it already. The url can show you that they are not the same account.​

    Unfortunately, SteamRep does not accept reports dealing with hijacking/phishing/hacking -Due to current Investigative Policy
    http://forums.steamrep.com/threads/investigative-policy.140101/

    This includes anything to do with API key requests, wrong or misspelled URL's and sites requesting logins of any type in attempts to steal your credentials.
    These are phishing/hijacking attempts and are not to be reported to SteamRep!

    You can report the user to Valve instead
    In order to do that, you have to:
    1. Visit the accuseds profile
    2. Click MORE drop-down located at the top right of the page
    3. Choose REPORT VIOLATION
    4. Select the violation, then describe it and provide the evidence
    5. Click SUBMIT REPORT
