User Report: 76561198025185365 (medli20)

This user has tried to make me trade my unusual to him with a fake Marketplace.tf Bot. The bot being Bot 21. He would try to lead me to Marketplace to only send a trade from his fake account the same time. The trade would even come through when I wasn't on the site. When I traded through a real Bot, he would act strange and say to withdraw it and trade with the Bot 21 that would try to scam me from my unusual.

    While it's possible that medli20's account is hijacked, it's much more likely that your were talking to impersonator.


    You should find the scammer's Steam profile again

    ( can use https://help.steampowered.com/en/accountdata/GetFriendMessagesLog )

    and then copy-paste the URL into https://rep.tf


    Never trust "my backpack" links like here:

    Please provide screenshots of the complete chat with the accused via your Friend Chat Message history. Please do this in a web browser and in at least one of the screenshots hover your mouse over the accused's name so that their profile URL shows in the bottom corner of the browser. All screenshots need to be uncropped and unedited.

    You can view your Friend Chat Message history by going logging into Steam and going to,

    Steam Support > My Account > Data Related to your Steam Account > Friend Chat Messages

    You've linked files on your computer, which only you have access to. Upload your images to an image hosting site, I recommend Imgur. You can put all of the images in a single album there.

    Please read the instructions carefully, the screenshots need to be taken in a web browser. At least one screenshot must have your mouse over the other user's name.
