    Today I accidently traded with a marked scammer.

    http://steamcommunity.com/id/DystopicFilms/

    Back in the summer I sold him (Cuddletime) a HOUWAR when I was cashing out and he was trusted/well known back then. I didn't bother to check his Steamrep when he added me yesterday and I even sent him the money first (That I was adding to my unusual) for his unusual. I would never in a million years send gifted Paypal balance first to a scammer, lol.

    Thought it would be better to report it in myself than someone else to report it. ^.^

    Item I traded for:

    Well, it's not exactly the end of the world if you trade with a scammer, the whole principle behind the "Don't trade with scammers" maxim, is to prevent scammers from being able to profit from their illegitimately obtained items. It can be extremely anguishing to people who have say lost their unusual to a scammer only for the scammer to sell it on for a large sum of money. While trading with scammers is in no way condoned or mitigated, sometimes it is purely by accident.

    This is why it is always good to take precaution by verifying their steamREP status before each trade. Experienced traders trading with scammers cannot be tolerated sometimes, but however accidents do happen when they do not take precautions.

    1)Joe (Recently marked) and Nooblord were unmarked at the time of the trade
    2)I'm cool with Marsh and he is a good guy, regardless of Steamrep status. I take no shame with being friends with him.
    3)Palestinian I don't know/never had added
    4) 6 is a relatively low number considering I have a large number of friends (283) which is a fail rate of 2%.
    5)Intentions with the MM were good. He didn't seem suspicious, I only found out he was a scammer today when I was banned from the site you moderate.

    Why do you appear in the trade history right under him though?

    from what I've seen, donut is a good lad. He was the first person to support UTC with a donation!

    Never forget him for baring with me while I fixed the broken donate button :)
