    I posted on TF2Outpost my Blizzardy Storm Le Party Phantom for 70USD or 2.7Buds. Around an hour later I was contacted by ,______ [ ^ ^]< . I wished to sell the hat quickly, and since ,______ [ ^ ^]< had a level 23 (It was 20 something for sure, I'm not 100% sure) account and membership of around 5 years, I thought it was unlikely they were a scammer. The process seemed to go smoothly, but after ,______ [ ^ ^]< received the unusual, they quickly posted "Ike Aduba has sent Sofia Rosco $67 thank you" and unfriended me.
    It seemed somewhat regular, except the fact that I am not Sofia Rosco, I did not receive any funds and the ,______ [ ^ ^]< is now set to private, preventing any further communication.
    Now somewhat upset, I checked the history of my scammed Unusual on backpack.tf, which lists this account as the current owner. This account is set to public, and a look in the inventory shows a Blizzardy Storm Le Party Phantom. Whether this account is an alt or ally of the scammer is unknown, but the short period of time which elapsed between the Unusual been sent to ,______ [ ^ ^]< and arriving in this account would suggest otherwise.

    You may be on to something about http://steamcommunity.com/id/str4800/ (☣ѕнαттєиfαиg☣), ThePowerOutage

    ☣ѕнαттєиfαиg☣ is currently selling 3 unusuals on outpost, http://www.tf2outpost.com/trade/15680384 ( http://puu.sh/5gINq.png ), the Le Party Phanton being the unusual ThePowerOutage lost last night.

    All three of these unusual were acquired last night from the scammer being reported http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197998631212 ,______ [ ^ ^]<

    I am not sure if the German Gonzilla was stolen, but if you check the trade history, the last owner was ,______ [ ^ ^]< (and when I was looking into this scammer last night, I noticed an unusual German Gonzilla in his backpack, so I can testify that it was recently traded to ☣ѕнαттєиfαиg☣)

    The Magistrate's Mullet doesn't have ,______ [ ^ ^]< listed in the trade history, but it was stolen from 4okHyTbIu 6eJIkaツ ( http://www.tf2outpost.com/user/313671 ) by the same scammer last night as well. 4okHyTbIu 6eJIkaツhasnt reported this scam on steamrep, but he posts in ☣ѕнαттєиfαиg☣ trade claiming it has been stolen from him but the scammer. Check the puush/attached screenshot 222.png

    The peculiar thing about ☣ѕнαттєиfαиg☣'s trade is that he says "One quick note: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561197998631212 is a scammer, do not trade with them." when he clearly acquired 3 unusuals from the person he is calling a scammer. I think there should be some more investigation into how ☣ѕнαттєиfαиg☣ ended up with these 3 unusuals so quickly after they have been stolen.

    My friend was scammed out of his unususal last night by the same scammer http://forums.steamrep.com/threads/76561197998631212-______.48760/ but ☣ѕнαттєиfαиg☣ doesn't appear to own it and the scammer may still be holding on to my friend's unusual when looking at the owner history ( http://www.tf2outpost.com/item/440,2078697249 )
