User Report: 76561198137106459 (SM - Alex | Seek Discomfort)

I traded 5 keys and 13 ref for user SM - Alex | Seek Discomfort's Strange Specialized Killstreak Knife. However when i used the trade window it automatically made 2 trades one for his knife and one for nothing at all. The one that traded for nothing went to a bot that he is using and successfully stole my currency. The bot continues to change it's name but it is still there. Attached are 2 images of what happened when i tried to trade. I really need help on this because this is no ordinary scam. https://gyazo.com/cab6ff7c506a77db94fddc41f3291bfb https://gyazo.com/b92ebe3a4f330913abc5114025782163

    1) Do NOT do any more trades until you read these articles and remove scammer's control over your account:

    https://marketplace.tf/blog/posts/YHLZOB

    https://blog.opskins.com/protect-your-steam-account-from-the-steam-api-key-scam/


    2) The user you're reporting does not look like a scammer and probably unrelated to this scam.


    3) You need to open https://steamcommunity.com/my/inventoryhistory/ in your browser,

    find the trade to the scammer, and make completely uncropped and unedited screenshot

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

    First of all, do check the link Alex posted above - this one here for clarity's sake https://marketplace.tf/blog/posts/YHLZOB - and take the suggested steps necessary to secure your account.


    Second of all, you only mention trying to send an offer for this user's knife. Did you have any interaction with them, or anyone else regarding to this trade before it occurred? Alternatively, do you recall having logged into any new trading related sites in the past few days, or being asked to do so?


    If either of those things are true, please provide uncropped (whole computer screen visible)/unedited screenshot proof of your interactions with all users involved, taken from here - https://help.steampowered.com/en/accountdata/GetFriendMessagesLog


    When you take screenshots, please do so in a web browser rather than Steam client and hover your mouse over the name of the user you are interacting with so that their profile URL displays in the lower left hand corner of the screen. Then upload them to an image hosting service (imgur, for example) and post the links here.


    Lastly, please provide a screenshot of your trade with the user that wound up with your item, taken from here https://steamcommunity.com/my/inventoryhistory/ and formatted in the same way - uncropped/unedited, taken in a web browser, and with your cursor hovering over their name so that their profile URL displays in the lower left.

    Closing due to lack of follow up. You can reopen this yourself if you would like to add the required evidence.
