After reading this, I started thinking of ways that scammers could frame others, and I think I thought of one that might actually work. Unlike the one previously mentioned, this method would only involve two people (no need for alts/fake chats): the person trying to frame the individual (I'll just use myself as an example) and the innocent person (I'll just call him Bob). So let's just say that-for some strange reason-I really hate Bob (though he has no idea who I am) and it would make my day to see him get tagged. He's also currently buying TF2 items for PP money and also has a lot of rep compared to me which means I'll have to go first. I would send him an invite and since he has more rep, I would trade him my TF2 items first. As soon as I finished trading him my items, I would say something like: "alright are you gonna send the money?" and as soon as I say that, I quickly remove him from my friends-list and take screenshots of the chat. The screenshots of the chat would make it look like he removed me instead of the other way around (most people would think, "why would I want to lose my items?"). The chat would pretty much be something like this: Me: Hey Bob: Hey Me: So your buying items for money? Bob: Yep Me: Ok [You have accepted the trade message, we don't say anything and then the trade finishes] Me: Ok there you go Me: So are you gonna send the money? [I then remove Bob as soon as I say this] Bob is now offline Me: Hey are you there? [I would then screenshot this and use it as my evidence] Would this method work, and if so, would there be a way to tell who's innocent and who's not?
