Why do I have to get scammed to be able to report the scammer?

    I made a report on a scammer with 100% proof, but instead of getting scammed by him I wasted his time by trolling him in my video and my report was declined instantly just because I didn't get scammed by him, I keep checking every once in a while on his inventory and I keep seeing new skins that are on trade hold (which means he's still successfully scamming people). I think there should be at least a look into my evidence before completely declining it, even though him being shown as a scammer on steamrep won't stop him from scamming but it might prevent someone from getting scammed by him.

    I just think if someone has undeniable proof, they don't NEED to get scammed to be able to report.

    You don't but you can't just submit reports if you are not the victim -that isn't how it works.
    It is essential that the victim submit the report so we can establish certain evidence needs that were meet or can be meet to accept a report.
    Videos are not acceptable evidence and substitutes for screenshot requirements.

    You are welcome to submit a report for whomever to Valve using the in profile reporting feature.
    In order to do that, you have to:
    1. Visit the accuseds profile
    2. Click MORE drop-down located at the top right of the page
    3. Choose REPORT VIOLATION
    4. Select the violation, then describe it and provide the evidence
    5. Click SUBMIT REPORT

    Click here to view an animated gif that shows how to report a violation.

    Lastly - raising concern over a declined report is against General Forum FAQ.

    Trying is what counts I guess. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
