D.Alex Posted February 25, 2019 Share Posted February 25, 2019 I would like to remind everyone that Backpack.tf trusts system is being heavily abused by Paypal scammers. They come with a new account, quickly build 10 or more fake +trusts, top that with some real +trusts and then scam people for hundreds of dollars or keys. Some quotes from old reports: "I believed he was trustable, as he had 15 trust on backpack.tf" "He uses Backback for his cash rep" "accruing fake reputation on backpack.tf" "User scammed me by using his rep ... backpack.tf" "User has abused his accumulated trust" Scammer's words: Yeah well my rep was pretty believable ... all fake tho (SR) Only some recent cases: 2018.08 "Foxy" / "ACiD": SR, BP, Reddit 2018.09 "Matics": SR 1, SR 2, BP 2018.09 "Only Money" / "¡RETRO": SR 1, SR 2, SR 3 2018.10 "CyraxDarkLord" / "TheBakes": banned before any reports came in 2018.11 "iO": BP 2019.01: "cuze": SR, BP forum As far as I know, it was all the same scammer (except the last case). For reference, his "most documented" SteamRep accounts: one, two. Few examples of fake +trusts (always removed by BP staff after the scam): pg 1, pg 2 (from SR report) pg 1 for CyraxDarkLord pg 1, pg 2 for iO pg 1, pg 2 for cuze The scammer usually puts his ads at /r/tf2trade, /r/Dota2Trade, /r/GlobalOffensiveTrade and also right here on BP Cash Trade forum: "Matics", "Only Money" Unfortunately I am not allowed to name any accounts that are not banned yet because BP admins call this "witch hunting". Please do not call any names either to avoid this thread being locked. I plan to discuss other aspects of this problem and possible solutions in my subsequent posts.
