stabslive Posted January 26, 2019 Share Posted January 26, 2019 Hello all, My name is Stabs and tonight I was scammed. Let me explain. A little while back (a week or two ago), I made a forum post asking if people would be interested in buying my Australium Knife and Ambassador via PayPal. I got a buyer. They added me on Steam and we began talking. After a little chatting, the person then talked about trading with me. They insisted I gave them the items first and they would then pay. In the middle of the trade, they also asked for my Spec KS Sniper Rifle, offering to pay. I decided to follow through with it and gave them the items first. They seemed trustworthy as in their Steam inventory they had a few unusuals and some keys so I assumed they were a good trader. After waiting five minutes or so and not receiving any change in my PayPal balance, I messaged them, asking where the money was. They were playing Garry's Mod at the time and saying they were "dealing with sits in DarkRP." I decided to wait a few more minutes and asked again where it was. This time I got no response. After that, I waited 10 minutes and asked yet again. No response as well. When streaming, I then saw that they'd removed me and made their profile private. I proceeded to have a panic attack due to the fact that I'd just love $81.50 from being scammed. This person has had NO consequence yet and I've still not been compensated. Their profile is: https://steamcommunity.com/id/HeavyweightHoovy. The money used from the trade is for a new PC that I've been trying to get for literally years. I'm very upset about this and am just saddened that people still do this, even though they already had a good backpack. Please, any help or advice is appreciated. Thanks.
