People are knowingly trading with him without a ban?

 

Can someone tell me what's going on?

 

"It is absolutely still the case that SteamRep and communities should ban for knowingly brokering or partnering with a scammer or hijacker. "

 

You'd have to have an IQ of 49 to buy the TC off of a duper/ long-time scammer without knowing.... I feel they should stay banned

Steamrep no longer bans for buying from marked scammers, so he most likely had his mark removed because of the new rule changes

Well, there goes the "cursed" part of the BF TC

well he was marked only because the first guy scammed and traded it down, it's not exactly fair that everyone else after is called  scammer when they bought it legitimately...

They didnt buy it legitimately, they seeked out the marked scammer hoping for a deal on the tc. After the TC was hijacked there were two of them, and one of these dupes is now owned by another duper who is apparently selling these through paypal. Clearly, anyone buying this knows what they are dealing with.

I think to be banned there needs to be evidence that there was a partnership. As an example you purchase it off them and list it for sale and share the profits. (which most likely won't happen since the scammer can sell it easily anyways as you can't be marked for buying a single item and single item purchases won't be looked at)

 

With the new rules you can know 100 percent that a person is a scammer and trade with them without a marking provided it's not more than 2 items (according the the rules) you aren't fencing the item for them or seeking out profits. This is from my understanding (best to get SR to confirm) you can purchase a bunch of items off a scammer but if you keep them and aren't selling it for them, partnering up with them then you should be ok as they only ban for fencing / partnering and if your keeping the items there is no evidence of that. If you decide to sell the items then there could be an issue as it could be seen as you seeking out scammers for profit (this part is seems hazy to me though)

 

Best ask SR though for clarity
