Scammed through bp.tf

Recommended Posts

Today I sent someone a trade offer on bp.tf. I sent the trade offer and instantly my items had left my inventory. The one I sent was canceled and my items were sent to a different account (not the one i sent the offer to) in return for nothing. I was sent a steam guard confirmation about the real trade offer but not for the one where I lost my items. The scammer has 3 others unusuals and a few csgo knives. I reported the profile, but there's nothing else I can do because the guy I wanted to trade with doesn't even know that I ever sent him an offer for his hat. What should I do to take further action on this situation. I have already done the basics like change my password. Below is a link for a google doc with screenshots and profile links about what happened.

Actually you confirmed the offer to the scammer's bot and I'm sorry to tell you this but you did have a chance to notice that it became "a gift" .

 

After changing the password you still have to revoke Steam API key and maybe take care of your other accounts with the same password.

Other than that and learning not to make the same mistake again I guess there's really nothing else to do.

Definately check out your api key because you have been phished and they now control your account.

Just a random set of questions. Has anyone asked you to go onto a gambling site lately and advertise for them for perks?.

Or were you unfortunate to beleive the scam that is flying around whjere a website appears to have a roullete wheel which gives free games. One variant of this phishing site is letygames. Which morg is listed as being the biggest winner on so it looks legit even though it 100% isnt. Avoid all sites like this at all costs. They phish your details but then dont immediately hijack off your goods. They wait for you to trade then obfuscate it that way. Id say 50 percent of the echelon are using the same cloud.  are even in control of [redacted] . sadly. my router skills are slacking.

Sorry for the late response. I have already revoked the api key. I did not fall for the trick you described, and I don't remember signing into anything like that, but I hadn't traded for a while before that. I most likely made a stupid mistake a while ago and didn't think anything of it until now. Now that I know what happened, I guess I will just move on. Thanks for the help.
