Its an old scam attempt that has been growing and growing a lot lately. 

 

This scam is better known as "Trusted friend scam"

 

One of the weakest scamming method out there but the depressing part of this whole scam thing is that people fall for this and get scammed.

I fell for this shit.

 

I did give him my best friends info and stuff. The thing is I trust my best friend, I usually just give him my unusuals to wear no problem

 

The scammer took my friends profile, made his alt the exact same thing as my friends profile, and I lost my unusual when I traded to him

 

Be extremely careful.

Easy to avoid this by chatting with the friend while trading with him.

I did. My friend also felt he was alright. 

 

The guy had 700 hours in DOTA 2, lots of +reps. 

 

When he sent the group chat, my friend responded with something along the lines of "alright, let's do it" at the exact same time the fake alt sent the trade. 

 

It was very, very awful timing and huge coincidence that led me to lose my unusual

 

 

This is definitely one of the smarter scams, it's good you put this up OP. Loads and loads of people got scammed by that same guy I got scammed by with the exact same tactic.

Eastside MoonwaIker

Omaniâ„¢.

hosky.

shenanigasm

Kapusom.

Those are all his previous attempts. Remeber if you do try something like this. TELL YOUR FRIENDS TO NOT TRADE UNLESS YOU PERSONALLY GIVE THEM A KEY WORD.

 

That's all.
