    The screenshots you have provided are cropped - we need them to be fullscreen and uncropped, so they will need to be reformatted.

    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.

    I don't have access to the group chat anymore, my bad. I don't have enough evidence through this link "https://help.steampowered.com/en/accountdata/GetFriendMessagesLog"

    it looks like they just want to trade with me through this, cause it doesn't have the group chat log.

    except they want me to talk to this fake admin account to "verify my items"

    Here is the chat i have access to anyways.


    Apologies, Didn't know they needed to be fullscreen. Please tell me if you have any other issues. :p

    Please re-take these with a screenshotting method that allows your full computer screen to be visible, including the taskbar. You are doing the cursor hover correctly though, so please keep that up.

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