How exactly is an item classified as duped?

See, plenty of people have told me that it's if it has the same ID as an original item ID. But today, my friend and a bunch of others tried to tell me that it has the tag "This item appears to have been duped" if it's owned by more than one scammer. I think that's a bunch of bullshit, but it does have me worried because one of my valuable items was owned by a scammer in the past. Is there any truth in that? I don't really believe it, but I just want to confirm that it's not true.

The warning appears when the item with the same original ID is in 2 or more backpacks scanned by bp.tf at the same time. This is not an absolute determination if it is duped, occasionally the item can appear duped when it is not due to private backpacks and it goes the other way as well when a private backpack has the extra copy it won't appear duped here.

The number of scammers in the history has no influence although the likelihood of it being duped goes up due to phished stuff getting replaced by valve.

 

http://backpack.tf/item/325911182 definitely duped

 

http://backpack.tf/item/1819155186 Not too sure but tons of scammers in the history and no warning

 

http://backpack.tf/item/1944117150 Says it's duped but i can't find the extra copy and there's 0 scammers in history

 

On lower end hats it doesn't matter much.
