    Description: That buster guy added me out of the blue and wanted to buy my hat for a slighty too high price. He told me that he will find a middleman. Then the middleman entered and posted this rep link: http://tf2-trader.com/index.php?topic=12549.0. I checked the times and urls and it was clear that the guy was impersonating. (I knew from the start but I wanted to collect evidence). I told them to f✿✿✿ off and they left. The fake middleman is already a marked scammer while the other guy has only a "caution" tag. So this should be enough for him to get a full scammer tag.

    Copy a transcript of the chat below that. For readability: Put the text between [ code ]text here [ /code ] tags, remove the spaces within the brackets and it will show up the same as this part of the text.
