Steam Rep should do this

    Steam Rep should attach a caution to all accounts associated with scamming:

    For example a recently banned profile:

    Hidden Content:
    **Hidden Content: Content of this hidden block can only be seen by members of (usergroups: Administrative, Moderating).**
    You can see countless +reps from fake/ bot / accomplice accounts...

    Is steam rep working on a solution to deal with these accounts?

    Our current stance is that any Steam Profile "reputation" is useless to gauge their trustworthiness, as per the link I posted. It is highly unlikely that this will change.

    How would that be fair to those that really did interact with someone? We can't just throw "whatever" tags to the wind.
    It would reflect negatively towards someone that nobody would truly know if someone did anything wrong or not.
    There is no way you could verify that anyone did or did not trade with someone which is why we no longer tag for "fake rep" for example which was done many years ago.
    It was something that IMO should have never been done to begin with since you have absolutely no way to know in many cases if they were done or not.

    The policy was changed way back when and what your asking would be against my moral compass for sure.

    On another note I've removed that users ID from your post as this is not the place to put someone front and center for your own agenda.

    Ok - The idea would be that cautionary tags would be deployed on accounts promoting known scammer accounts - if they remove the comment from their profile the caution tag would be removed. This would have to be automated but I don't think this is unreasonable unless the devs can not impliment this kind of system.

    The reason I say this is that people would be reluctant to get involved in any way or form with fraud
