Due to the overwhelming amount of complaints in reguards to people being scammed using the "/me" command, Valve has removed it from Steam. There are two threads where people are discussing ways to add it back that may solve the issues (links at bottom if post).

The command was being used to trick people into thinking Steam wallet funds were waiting at the end of the trade, as well as (possibly) creating fake "system" messages to scam account information (log-in, password).

For the moment, however, Valve did the best and quickest solution it coulds prevent further abuse. No Valve personel has said if an alternative will or will not be added in the future.
