Do: Always check the persons account. Have some knowledge when you use your Paypal. Keep wide awake and alert at ALL TIMES during a trade. NEVER LOAN anything to other people in the hopes that they will: a) Give it back. b) Buy it back. If someone attempts to scam you, Tab out of the game you are playing and take a screencap of the trade, chat and other important windows. Never buy or trade for items YOU KNOW HAVE BEEN STOLEN/ SCAMMED. THIS MAKES YOU AN ACCOMPALICE TO THE CRIME. ALWAYS CHECK THE ITEM HISTORY ON TF2OUTPOST. Don't: Panic or freak out if you have been scammed/hacked. Contact VALVe through the steampowered website and they'll do the best they can to help. Let a scam go unnoticed or unrecorded. YOU CAN HELP TO MAKE STEAM TRADING A FRIENDLIER SYSTEM. ALWAYS RECORD AND KEEP EVIDENCE. Don't place false scam warnings on this site. Innocent players tend to get in the crosfire, and it's just a big hassle for everyone. Thanks, and keep on trading!
