Short brief of scamming
Scams are a dishonest scheme, that is set up to take anything off you and get nothing or the item you didn't want. These kind of people normally target people who aren't aware of scams in CSGO, this post will be talking about types of scams and how to avoid them.
Fake Phishing Links
Fake phishing links are links that when you click on them, they will either log your IP or download a rat onto your PC and get control by the scammer. Which leads to him having full access to your steam account.

To avoid this, never click on any link that someone sends to you. If you do accidentially click on one, turn on your anti - virus scanner and make sure that the rat gets deleted. Another way is to have Mobile Authenticator on your phone, so even if he does get your password he can't log in unless he has yor mobile authenticator.
Trading Outside Scam
This scam is when the scammer is offering to give you something outside CS:GO for your items. He will ask for you to go first (send the items to him before he sends the thing you want) and when you do, he will block you and run off with your items.

To avoid this, ask him to go first. If he calls you a scammer and doesn't trust you, end the trade. He will bait you into giving your items to him first anyway.
He claims he has the item but doesn't.
This scam is when the scammer claims to have the items that you want, but apparantly cant trade it because of some bad excuse. When you do put in your items, he will block you and run off with your items.

To avoid this, before trading look at his inventory to see if he does indeed have your item, if he doesn't do not do the trade with him.

I am noticing that scammers are making this as their favourite so they can make themselves look legitimate.

Let me make this clear:
IF ANYONE IS USING THESE METHODS ON YOU, THEY ARE GOING TO POSSIBLY SCAM YOU.
