    I found on steam more group who offer +rep for +rep. This is fake reputation and the person who trust members of that groups can be easy scammed. Is thousands of people who user "+rep groups". What we can doing to stop this?

    P.S. My sr ban is for nothing. (i post appeal ready).

    I'm going to leave this here: http://forums.steamrep.com/threads/what-constitutes-reputation.12391/ .
    There are so many groups with that, people need to start thinking that maybe a place where you can simply delete the bad reputation is not a good place to post reputation, also that the + rep thing should only be applied when someone is going first not for a simple trade. Anyways thanks for the posting your concerns, a good way to stop them is by teaching the community what reputation really is- we can all help. Tell your friends, people that post + rep on your profile, etc.. Information is the most powerful "weapon" against scams.
