Where to report some1 for scammin?
A guy just acammed me. Said he wold pay 53 US in a Unusual Desert Marauder, and didnt. Here's the outpost trade we made mjsut for this trade: http://www.tf2outpost.com/trade/9104313

He replied his own message after i gave him the unusual.

I HAVE EVERYTHING to ban him: BP history, chat log, outpost trade.

Where can i post this so he can gets banned/trade banned?

steamrep.com

you can report him to Valve as well

also i don't see how your outpost trade constitutes "proof"

You can report him via his profile and/or Steam support.

Since you traded OUTSIDE of the Steam trading guidelines, don't expect to get any lost item back from that trade.

In the future follow the golden rule of trading:
IF IT DOESN'T FIT INTO A SINGLE TRADING WINDOW, DO NOT TRADE.

It's also easy to tell just from the item history that he got it from you... like i said, open a report on steamrep.com

Valve can't do anything except punish the guy who "scammed" you.

As far as they're concerned, you agreed to the trade multiple times.

Lesson? If it doesn't fit inside the trade, then you don't do it

Yes, middlemen are essential if the person you're trading with has no kind of reputation.
I doubt that you will get the unusual back, but if you want to have even a chance you'll have to contact steam support. But please do post on Steamrep as well, a scammer mark on steamrep will get him banned from outpost.

You can click the report button on his account to report him to Valve for scamming. But if you want a chance to get your hat back you'll have to file a ticket with support: https://support.steampowered.com/

Its why people tell the trader to pay first, paypal at least gives you their real name.

ok thats a valid report, post that report to steam on his profile page report button thing too. also add one of the tf2outpost admin, on the contact page, find a guy online and then show them the report, this will get their outpost account locked. you can probably repeat on every trading page out there to lock him down.

I guess steam support should cover it already. No prob, I've reported plenty of these scum bags, especially when /me was still a thing.
