Scammer/hijacker trade thread.

Recommended Posts

I realized that there wasn't a way to report scammers and hijackers (who used backpack.tf as a place to dump all their stolen goods) fast enough for the mods to ban them before they manage to offload all their goods. I created this thread for the purpose of:

 

- reporting scammer/hijacker alts who created classified listings on bp.tf.

- reporting users who traded with obvious scammer/hijacker alt.

 

Feel free to post here if you come across any scammer/hijacker listings (with evidence of course).

Well if you had made this thread yesterday I wouldnt be banned now. Fuck it.

Tough luck, you should've checked his outpost trade :(

 

You wouldn't've made this thread without my idea <3

Yup, your idea seems feasible enough. Posting on status update won't get much attention, so a thread would've been much better.

The account had 23 hours. C'mon man you're not fooling anyone.

Im fooling the FBI

 

Read my appeal, I just checked his rep quickly, saw he had 4 years in that account, was in an Australian Trade Server, had other items in his backpack (strings hats and whatnot) and was 100% CLEAN on rep.tf (every site) and traded him before someone else took it :S

@grim, I think it would be better to edit the original post when needed than to let the information get lost in replies below.

You're right, I will slowly put them into categories, to make it much neater at the top post.

Heheh because he is a hypocrite and is jealous of people getting "good deals" as phrased by him and that he could steal the deals from hijackers. Not only does that make him just as bad (or even worse because he knows they are hijackers), he reports those that take it as vengeance. An example would be Mr.A wants to murder Mrs.B for some reason but a car driven by Dr.C hit Mrs.B and killed her. Now Mr.A is suing Dr.C for causing the death or Mrs.B because Mr.A didn't get a chance to kill Mrs.B. Sorry for confusing terms, thats the way I am <3

This business with scammers and hijackers was bad enough, now you have fences, and scammer/hijacker alts, and fence alts, and people who aren't actually marked but perhaps should be, and people who "are shady". And you can get banned from all the interwebs for trading with any of them.

 

Am I the only one getting a bit nervous about unusual trading, even though I'm always honest (and reasonably careful)?
