    1) It looks like you are reporting the wrong person (the one being impersonated by a scammer).

    Open https://steamcommunity.com/my/tradeoffers/sent/?history=1

    and check accounts for _both_ your canceled and accepted offers.


    2) There is no way to get your item back.


    3) The way you were scammed suggests that your account is under scammer's control,

    and the scammer canceled your offer and created a new one just as you were about to confirm.

    Read these blog entires (except in your case it wasn't a deposit)

    In a web browser, please go to your trade history and find the trade involved in the scam. Hover your mouse over the other user's name and take a screenshot and link it here. The screenshot must be completely uncropped and unedited.


    As stated above your account may be compromised. I highly recommend taking the steps listed here to help protect your account - https://marketplace.tf/blog/posts/YHLZOB

    That is not what was asked for. You need to view your trade history, not sent trade offer history. You also need to do it in a web browser, not the steam client.

    Yes, but with your mouse over their username so that their profile URL shows in the bottom corner of the browser.

    It appears, based on the nature of the scam that took place here, that you were phished at some point in the recent past. If you have not yet done so, following the steps for securing your account outlined in this link that Alex posted above is imperative: https://marketplace.tf/blog/posts/YHLZOB


    As this sort of scam falls outside of SR investigative policy, we are unable to apply a full scammer tag to the account involved. However, they have been permanently banned from our site as a warning to other users. Thank you for your report.
