How were you "scammed"? Do you have evidence?
Funboyfun23 Feb 27, 2013 @ 8:38pm 
It depends on how he scammed you, did he shark you or did he just plain out scam you and you didnt get anything. I mean if he sharked you cant do much BUT if he totally scammed you and you got nouthing in return then what you need is screenshots of the event (like the chats and all that) and then you can report it to http://steamrep.com/ <--- steam rep

We were going to spycrab and he suggested a middleman. The "Middleman" sent me a trade and then just disconnected after we traded. I managed to get into his profile right after he left

No, he SCAMMED me. His "middleman" just left along with himself. He was using the name "Porky Pig", at first and during the trade he changed his name to "Increas Phantom"

EDIT: ima go back and ask the admin to send me screenshots of the chat. brb

the thing is that i dont have any solid proof at all. It's not like i take screenshots of evry trade i do. Can't valve look at previous trade chats or any typr of chat logs or something?
BlaqkAudio Feb 27, 2013 @ 9:23pm 
actually, i have one good proof. Maybe 2. I have in my trade history saying who I traded the items too. and also, I was talking to a very trusted (that I know for sure) soon-to-be admin on the server i was on. Is this good enough? I have no screenshots but I do have the trade chat.

Post it to steamrep and raise a ticket to Valve in TF2.

he can't post it to steamrep.. its a spycrab

you shouldn't trade outside of steam, read the steam trade agreement, anything you do outside of steam trade window is out of their hands. you need screenshots to report to the other sites anyways. steam only cares about what goes on inside their trade system, outside of it , its your word against the other guy. why would you trust a middleman anyways...

"What should I not trade for?

Do not trade for anything that cannot be added into the trade window within Steam. The most common examples of these scenarios are the following:
Trading items/gifts for money outside of the Steam Community market. You cannot add wallet credit or any form of money into the trade window. A common example of this is trading for items/gifts in return for money via PayPal.
Trading items/gifts for CD Keys. You cannot add a CD Key into the trade window. CD Keys that are offered can be for a different game, fake, used or region restricted. A common example of this trade is trading items/gifts in return for a promotional CD Key that is never given to you.
Trading items/gifts for nothing in return in the first trade and expecting to get an item or gift in a later trade. There is no reason to not trade everything in one trade. You may add unlimited items/gifts to a single trade. A common example of this is adding your items/gifts in one trade. Then the other user states that they will trade you their share or the rest of the items/gifts in another trade, but never do.

they wash their hands of responsibility for this stuff because while some people are really scammed, they would also be dealing with reverse scams where people claim scam to get their item back even if they lost the spycrab, valve understandably wants no part of such time consuming disputes.

its only proof things changed hands, its not proof of a scam.

So, it looks like I wont get my items. As long as that ♥♥♥♥er gets banned and unable to sell or trade my items is good enough for me. I just want justice served.
