User Report: 76561198207331856 (face to face)

he comented on one of my screenshots and told me to add him immediately so i did. Then he proceeded to tell me that he accidentally reported me on steam instead of someone else and told me to add someone else to clear out my name. I stopped here but i found a redit post that goes on to explain this scam method. This is the reddit post: https://www.reddit.com/r/Scams/comments/afbzqy/new_steam_scam_nearly_fell_for_it/

    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.
