Yes, he added me and claimed that it was his alternate account for trading and his inventory is set to private so scammers don't know about his items or something like that, even though the actual guy had ''I DON'T HAVE ANY ALT ACCOUNTS AND I DON'T SET MY INVENTORY TO PRIVATE'' in his profile description on steam. The impersonator claimed that he wants to buy my unusual, but i called him out before he made any moves, so i don't know what methods he uses. He has been reported on steam and he's gone after multiple people because in the comments of the impersonated guy's profile there was already someone telling him about the impersonator. It was the same guy, same steam profile url.
Please provide uncropped (whole screen visible)/unedited screenshot proof of your interactions with this user and any other users involved in this scam attempt. If you have access to these from the original chat window, please provide them. Upload them to an image hosting service (imgur, for example) and post the links here.
If you no longer have access to your original chat window with this user, you can instead recover chatlogs here - https://help.steampowered.com/en/accountdata/GetFriendMessagesLog - and when you take screenshots of them, 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 (and again, remember not to crop or edit them in any way). Then upload them to an image hosting service (imgur, for example) and post the links here.
My evidence is pretty much useless, he didn't send any links or send any offers, he sent 1 or 2 messages which were not suspicious at all before i found him out, so in this situation i can't provide any solid proof, the person who was impersonated is aware of the impersonator so maybe he has something. This is the profile of the guy who was impersonated - https://steamcommunity.com/id/iigothic , and this is the impersonator's profile https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198305136279 .
That's fine - in this case, since there is at least proof of impersonation with intent to scam, the reported user has been banned from the site and your report has been marked ready for review. Our admin will assess if a tag can be applied as soon as they are available.
Thank you, i'm glad to see that you are working hard to fight these scammers.
