    So i had a both of them mofos
    one is hunting a victim through csgolounge.com (prolly via trade offers, when some will paste reoffer or comment something), then sends invite as cArn nickname, which posts links to official cArn profile with tons of items.
    and offers downgrades, sick deals.
    the other is fake middleman, waiting for YOUR invite, the first one is paste three middleman, two real and one fake

    i got everything - please contact me how to get these guys down, or smth.

    cant use normal report because its about two at the same time and i dont have time for that.
    ps. i figured them out before get scammed, just want to tell you guys to be aware, and some authorities to get them down and take back everything they steal.

    What do you mean you can't use "normal report", yes you can go ahead and report them. Also SteamRep can't take any items back that they steal. Finally, what can you expect anyone to do if you don't even link us to their profiles?

    NOTE: PTF has thousands upon thousands of impersonators.

    Report them in the proper section, which is here http://forums.steamrep.com/forums/report/

    You can also report them to steam via the dropdown menu when you click "more" on their profiles.

    Click their name in the chat window, or from your inventory history if you actually got scammed. Copy the profile URL, and paste it into SteamRep.com to get their SteamRep ID blocks (shown in previous post). Make a separate report for each by filling this out: http://forums.steamrep.com/forms/scam-report.2/respond

    Just so you know, this is nothing new. Most middleman, and high profile traders like cAre, have thousands upon thousands of impersonators. There are career criminals who do nothing all day but make brand new Steam accounts by the thousand to copy reputable profiles, scamming people from CSGO Lounge, and they keep doing it until the account is trade banned, when they move onto the next account.

    This is not the report section. In the future, if you want to actually provide an early warning to the community, use the report form. The general discussion is not a place to report scammers.
