    so I posted a thread on steamtrades a few days ago consisted of some lame but legit steam and desura keys. This idiot added me and wanted to trade my zen bound 2 for his forge (a gift in his inventory). I think this is like way to good to be true. so I opened steamrep, enter his id, and voila, what a dickhead he is. here's our chatlog.

    here's the dickhead's steam profile http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198030778591/

    I saw that he's already banned, so thank you very much steamrep for saving that key today (it's still lame, I know). and just want to say to everybody out there be cautious when trading !!!

    A lot of time once someone gets scammed, they continue to scam at a greater rate as they "have nothing to lose". I'm glad there is a site like steamrep as they have helped users save themselves from fraudulent trades like you.

    It's just a shame that a lot of people don't know about steamrep. As a lot of times, when someone trades with someone intending to scam them, they might not be aware that the person they are trading with is a marked scammer, and they will usually get scammed.

    Also, while I'm glad steamrep saved the day, I think it would be good if you reported this user for his attempted scam in the report a scam section. Because although he's already marked, this attempted scam would count as another offense for him, making it harder for him to appeal his scammer tag.
