I just got scammed by ~Maccarena Man~ dont make the same mistake..
This guy offered me 50$ steam money and i am recently new to steam and when i saw that it said he had added 50$ for me in blue writing , i went ahead and traded my gold botkiller MK1 knife. He then deleted and blocked me. It was my most valuble item. http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198080250307 do not make the same mistake.
I know this is a pathetic attempt but if some generous ppl could donate a little stuff :( i would really appreciate it.

Well Ragnarok, you can't even trade money on here, just items.

So if nothing else, just run when someone offers money for something.

It's OK, we're bound to make a mistake or two when we're new to something. :)

Did you really think it was worth $50? Didn't that seem at all suspicious to you? I don't understand how people can be tricked just by blue text.

Anyway OP, there's nothing you can do unless you have a screenshot of the chat. If you did then you could report him to SteamRep and have him marked as a scammer but sounds like you didn't keep the evidence.

Not sure, Valve certainly has realized that /me can be used for scamming since they removed it in the Steam community beta, but i don't know if they'll reverse the trade... but if you have a screenshot then you should submit it to SteamRep along with a picture of the trade from your trade history

SteamRep? im not sure what that is i justsubmitted a ticket. Also where can i find my trade history?

go to your inventory and click on "inventory history"

also http://steamrep.com/ is a website where you can check to see if a user has scammed in this past. in fact i just checked and the guy who scammed you is a known scammer: http://steamrep.com/search?q=76561198080250307, you probably don't need to file a report since he's already marked...

hell when i got scammed it was like a few weeks into tf2 i was in it for the game itself and when i got my first good drop a high five taunt i didnt know any better and traded it for like a dozen dirty weapon, seemed good to me since i only had other weapons and no hats yet, i look back at that as a reminder now that im in the game for hats as well: have no sympathy and be suspicious of everything said in a trade.
