Don't Get Scammed

Today I realized that this little scrotum ball (https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198829846546) scammed me out of 59 keys and an Eldritch Prehistoric Pullover. I'm a dumbass for trusting this testicle of a maniac. He only had 2 rep when I added him. Man I don't know how I trusted him. 8 months of hard work, gone with the wind. Clark Gable isn't here to save the day, unfortunately. I reported him on bp.tf, which is the most I could do.

 

Don't EVER act impulsively.

"Oh yeah this guy's got just a bit of rep but I REALLY feel like he's honest. I can just FEEL it. (*Gives items after a few minutes of brief research and thought*)" 

That's essentially what I did. Don't let your emotions override your reasonable faculties . Months and even years of work can disappear in an instant.

Even if someone has some rep, they can easily acquire it through buying keys from rich people and getting rep. Make sure the person you make a cash trade with has either massive rep (20 minimum, 30+ recommended) and/or is a community leader who you might see often on servers. Make sure they also have a substantial backpack. Also, ONLY trade with people with rep. It doesn't matter if they go first. They can CHARGEBACK!!! 

 

It's quite lamentable, really. When I realized that I had been scammed I shed a few tears. I'm a kid, so I don't have very many means of making money. Those $221 I was supposed to get really meant a lot. But life goes on. Don't get scammed, guys.

You can do something about this, provide proof and file a report. It is hard to advise you because you don't go into much detail here as to what happen, but screenshot chat logs, put it all in the report. If you didn't take screenshots, you can go to https://help.steampowered.com/en/accountdata/GetFriendMessagesLog and it will show all recent chats, even if you aren't friends anymore (mine shows back for the last 2 weeks.

Provide as much detail as possible, and try to leave out all the emotion and anger, just the facts.

trust gives no restrictions to him or people trading with him, a ban on backpack.tf will give a suspension on all features and bans for people trading with him, its worth it for the very least justice
