Need some opinions on this
So, basically, this random guy on a server trades me and offers his Robro for some of my hats. We both agreed on the trade, he was given enough time to think about it and look up the prices, etc.

But, the next day, this same guy trades me asking for his Robro back. By now, I had sold it and, of course, didn't have it. Then, he said that he reported me for.."blackmailing him" (saying that I'd give him Steamrep if he did the trade, which didn't originally occur).

So, only have a few questions from here:

1. False reports might be grounds for a ban, right?
2. Does he have any valid reason for reporting me whatsoever?

The guy's Steam profile, in case anyone wants to look up his Steamrep etc.

His problem, it's like giving a bday gift, and then asking for it back the other day, or like buying a car, and the next day the seller calls you and tells "BRING THE CAR BACK". False reports might give a warning I think. And he doesn't have any reason, anyway. His problem, once again. Like, I don't go to a shop to buy something, like a drink, and if I don't like it, I don't return it back for money. It just doesn't work that way.

As long as he has no evidence of you actually "black mailing" him then you should be fine.

Steam rep? lololol. I wouldn't worry about it. He is trying to scare you. I don't think there is anything he can do or prove that you did. Though if he does some how get some action taken against your account that would be very interesting to know.

You only have to worry if he or Steam have evidence or records that work in his (or equally your) favour. Steam Support will investigate as if his report is genuine (because until they know for certain, one of you or both of you could be lying). make a note of when these trades occured so Steam support can know where to look in the message logs and they can validate which one of you is lying. Considering with future trades noting dates, times, servers and what both of u say to each other exactly as it is written on screen so you have a record of everything "as is".
