A New Years Disappointment Posted January 11, 2019 Share Posted January 11, 2019 I decided to post here because I thought this is the best place where most people would see it. The scam involved one person on steam who had high rep I instantly suspected them of scamming but I decided to continue long story short when It came to depositing my item (in this case a 43 key Green energy blast defense as usual onto marketplace.tf when I went to the seller dashboard my item was nowhere to be seen and the person I was trading with cut off all connections with me, I realised I had been scammed but how? I know a lot of scammer methods and have never fallen for one but this one was different. The scammer had somehow managed to redirect me from a official marketplace.tf bot trade to a trade offer with his bot. I know this because I looked at the bot the I traded with below is an image from their inventory with my item and a couple others that have been stolen. The profile was - https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198863709718 so go report the bot profile the original account I've lost as they were to quick in covering their tracks but they have been properly reported to steam support. I'm not asking for charity just warning people about a dangerous new scam which I've never seen before so no-one else has to fall for it. UPDATE: The scam involves another site tradetf2.com so if you get a trade mentioning it ignore and report the user performing the trade Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
