    Scam Report

    Report Type: [Item Fraud] Quick-switch trade scam or attempt
    Virtual item type involved: [TF2] Team Fortress 2 Items

    Accused profile: 76561199181049661

    Victim profile: 76561198178433726

    What happened? Description:
    I was trading with someone named Roger Opinel on discord who wanted my Unusual Towering pillar of hats. He showed me his inventory of items, saying he would be willing to give away any of his items for one of mine, of which his items being up to 350 keys. I of course, not wanting this offer to go away as it seemed really really good, said sure. He then told me to go to mannco.store and send a deposit of my unusual item to "find a price" or something along those lines. I did, and got sent a trade by Mannco bot | #0136 or something like that. I accepted as it seemed correct. The individual then changed their name to Mannco | Moderator and contacted me on steam saying "Your item is on hold" "You sent to many request" and other things in very broken english. He then sent me another trade offer (that being of my other valuable items) saying they would take those and "inspect them" and trade them back in 3-5 minutes. I caught on to what he was doing at this point, and declined and left.​

    Provide Evidence:

    The initial trade agreement. I sent him my trade URL after he asked. I was doing my initial bartering on Discord as he had contacted me there.

    View attachment 793956
    After we had decided on using Mannco.store to decide the price, i received a trade from the now named Mannco | Moderator and got my hat stolen. I was told to send 2 trades, wait a bit, and then accept it. I had not a clue what had happened until the "Moderator" contacted me.

    This is the trade that got switched out.

    View attachment 793958
    After the moderator asked me to send them my other items to get "verified." I declined this trade, knowing what was happening.

    proof of the scam being who they are​

    I dont have the ability to copy and paste the steam chat logs, so I have screenshots from the mobile app as this happened yesterday. They will be listed in the uploaded files as "Steamlog1" through "Steamlog7." I had one more, but that reaches the 15 file limit.
    Here is a log of the discord chat of the user, who I assume to be the scammer themselves, seeing as they share the same typing quirks.

    do you believe that sending someone the rest of my valuable items is helping
    because it very much is not
    the "moderator" has changed their name to a bot again
    i believe i have been scammed
    and they are also no longer messaging me
    You'll pay for the damages right? thats what you said. that was a 12 key hat.
