Please god help me....
This guy by the name of: Andre. Was going to trade with me. A knife on CS:GO. We used the "trust" System where I give him stuff to show that i won't scam and gives him confidence. None of that went well. After getting my suspicions of it he decided to hold my items hostage, 50 dollars worth of it. He then trolled me with it in his inventroy before eventually going offline and keeping it. Any advice/help?

We are not allowed to report users we have not had contact with. There is NO reason to give them collateral, use a middle man, or any other methods besides using the official trade system to do a trade in a single transaction.

You might as well start praying to your gaming diety so that you somehow get your virtual items back. Next time don't risk it.

Your first mistake was giving him $50 worth of stuff without anything in return.

It wasn't anything, it was over 300 via paypal. and he had a lot of REP. its the shock factor.

So you are just up $250 instead of $300 since he took the items you gave him?

You can't put either paypal or 'REP' in the trade window. That's not very surprising.

I think the scammer said he would pay $300 for it then Kischer had to give him items for collateral at which point the guy would send the funds then kirscher would trade his knife for the held items back.
