Scammer warning
The following scammer http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/*********/ is out there to steal your money, please spread the word to avoid others faling in his trap. I recently sold an item to him Via PayPal, he tried to reverse the payment a couple of days later, luckily I have a business account with PayPal and they cant reverse payment without my conscent. Again please warn friends and fellow traders of this scum...

Thank you

Are you kidding me, I am saying what happened end of story. There are hundreds of people who sell items for cash, so its no ones fault... I am mearly giving a heads up to other traders to be carefull of this person, the proof is in the pudding mate and he is 100% scammer material. So your comment doesnt even remotly relate to the topic, go troll elsewhere thanks.

Private profile.... is he your buddy?

No, it's a rule on the forum because of how the internet works: anyone can make up any story they want, so calling out people for scamming, feeding, trolling, etc. isn't allowed.

Report his profile, tell your friends, but expect to see your post editted and this topic closed.

No problem close it be my guest, perhaps steam should allow others to upload images and proof...

You are allowed to upload images and proof, but only to steam support.

There is a reason you cant "name and shame" on the forums and its a simple one. What if the guy who tried to scam you wasnt actually him? This happens, like, a lot.

Person "A" (scammer) gets access to account "B" from a phishing site. Now while he has control of "B", he makes a couple scams to person "C" and "D". He then trades the scammed items from B back to A. All person "C" and "D" see is that "B" scammed them so they flame his profile and report and etc etc, all the while scammer "A" is sitting pretty with everything.

Yes that makes sense. Perhaps Valve/Steam should open a wall of shame. WHere you can list all the suspected scammers... If, like you said the account was hacked, that person can redeem himself and be taken of the wall. Simple solution, doesnt require a lot of work from the devs...
