Scrap.tf+ fake buy SCAM ALERT+ I'm stupid


Recommended Posts

 copy of the report is below: 

The story:

I bid on an unusual and my bid ended up being lower than a quickbuyer on backpack.tf, so i thought I got really lucky. I talk to the guy before accepting and he uses vague language which I think nothing of at the time. As soon as I accepted the scrap.tf auction trade, he immediately blocks me and removes his buy listing, but i was able to get a screenshot of the listing before he did. 


I've done this type of thing with scrap.tf auctions before, this is the first time something like this has happened to me. I should have been more aware of the guy's odd language, but I was too greedy for profit. Both their profiles: https://backpack.tf/trust/76561198118208807?mode=for&filter=0   https://backpack.tf/u/76561198118732993 are clean, but the "buyer's" one was super sketchy and I should have known better. Something happened like this before, and I remember the guy performing the scam was banned on backpack.tf, so here's hoping something happens. Anyways, please dont post in this if is to insult me or say it was obvious. I know it was both of those things. Just wanted to do a PSA so other people dont fall prey to this type of thing.


In response to arguments that it might not be a scam and it is a coincidence:

The literal second I accepted the auction the "buyer" blocked me. The only way for him to know the timing would be if he is friends/collusion with the other account or if he is the other account as well.


Running an auction scam with another user:

Here is what I put in the other person's report:

Running a scam here he has another account auction an unusual and he put up a high buy price in order to draw in bidders.


Person he is working with: https://backpack.tf/u/76561198118732993


I tried to sell him the unusual immediately after winning the auction: https://imgur.com/a/TtDxY https://imgur.com/a/pkTLg


However, the instant i confirmed the scrap.tf auction he immediately unfriended me and unblocked me, then removed his buy listing from backpack.tf. There is sufficient evidence of not agreeing to classi listing, if not a scam attempt as well.


If any more evidence is needed from my end, please let me know
