1. There is no such thing as a "pending" ban or Steam admin. Anyone threatening your account is a scammer trying to scare you. Read more.

    So this kid offers me two knives for one of my knives we talk and he tells me they are trade banned i think nothing of it he says he opened them so i was just passing time waiting for trade ban to end wich ends tomorrow and i realized i could see if he legit opened em so i look at exchange and there is alot of owners so i assume he bought them off market

    - side note i bought a game from a scammer a while back he gifted me game then i paid him the keys next day the game was gone cause the kid refunded the payment to steam

    so i was wondering if he can refund his payment to steam and my items will get refunded ty

    He cannot "chargeback" on knives/keys/skins already available for trade. You are fine.

    1. he says he unboxed them // i looked at csgo.echange and there are many owners to them
    2. show picture of new item but doesnt show his rank / profile / friends // just a cropped photo

    Give me the steam id for the person you traded with.
    I can do a little background check on him and see if the items in question are possibly scammed items.

    I can't find anything out of the ordinary. But use common sense when trading. If a deal seems to good to be true..... you might want to rethink trading.
    His account is only 4 months old. Red flag for me when trading high ticket items.

    I had a little look around the guys account to try find something but I'll try update you if I do find anything phishy, but like Sivarts said his account is only 3/4 months old and he is trading high value items. I would take a lot of caution if I were you.

    You will not lose the items if you do the trade properly and everything. Just be careful.

    I mean. From what I can see, they haven't passed through a marked scammer that has been recorded by exchange. You're in the clear to trade with him - people might argue that duped items are worth less or whatever.

    Good on you for checking in with SteamRep about this stuff though, good on you.

    As stated above, you should be fine. It was smart if you to check here before proceeding on trades that make you feel uneasy.

    Why do people always insist on cropping screenshots like that?

    Maybe they think that's all that is needed? It would be easier to just use the printscreen button and save that.

    Kinda looks like this has run it's course.
