User Report: 76561198189954069 (MAGA!)

This guy scammed my unusual sniper hat saying he would trade me his "Strange Festive Scattergun worth 10.5 keys), I didn't realize it was a scam untill it was over, I realise I messed up and should've checked his rep etc, I also understand if nothing can be done.

    Hello, what sort of interaction did you have with the user? Did you have any conversation or was it through trade offers only or some other form of interaction?

    Hello, it was by trade offer and conversation

    I could not identify the item because his inventory was private, and renamed so I believed it was in fact the item he said

    Okay, we will need few things in order to proceed with the report.


    1] Please provide uncropped (whole screen visible)/unedited screenshot proof of your interactions with this user. If you have access to these from the original chat window. Upload them to an image hosting service (imgur, for example) and post the links here.


    If you do not have screenshot of original chat window, , please provide Uncropped and Unedited screenshots of your ENTIRE chat with the user from this page -- https://help.steampowered.com/en/accountdata/GetFriendMessagesLog -- Please find them on a web browser and hover your mouse over the name of the user you are interacting with so we can see the URL at the bottom left corner of the screen. Then upload them to an image hosting service (imgur for example) and post the links to your evidence of screenshot here.

    Example- should look like this - https://imgur.com/MjGyin8


    2] Screenshot of the trade offer - should also be Uncropped and Unedited, in a web browser, with your mouse hovering over the username so that profile URL pops up in bottom corner.


    3] Screenshot of the trade offer - should also be Uncropped and Unedited, also in a web browser, with your mouse hovering over the item(s) in question.

    Okay but I may not be able to get the chat because he seems to have blocked me..

    You can still recover the chat logs from the first link I provided on my previous post. It does not matter if they blocked you or removed you, as long as you both added each other and had contact you should be able to still recover the entire chat logs. Please read each step carefully and provide the requested criteria. Thank you.

    The item he offered and also yours in this case. We cannot access your account image link on imgur, you need to link either the album or the images you uploaded there.

    All of your trade offer screenshots (hovered items, profile link, etc) got cut off by other things in your screenshots. We need to be able to see the whole page and everything should be visible. You need to re-take those screenshots again.

    Nope, thank you for keeping up with the report. The report has now been marked as ready for review. Our admin will assess if a scammer tag can be applied as soon as they are available.


    Notes:

    - - User is already marked by SR for Quickswitch attempt.

    - - Could not find any backpack compare history. Most probably hid the item very well.

    - - Victim asked them if it was actually a strange festive, the culprit said yes, even after mentioning that festivized is showing up.

    Okay so what does this mean?

    Will he just be banned?

    He is already marked on steamrep and thus banned on trading sites. I have added the additional report as a note on his SR profile in case of appeal.
