User report https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76

This guy, firstly, pretended as a famous trader (used his avatar, screenshots, steam profile design and etc.). This guy also used the inventory of this trader to fool me. Secondly, he used the web site to get my account database and all stuff(I didn't register). The site is tradeskinsmarket.net. Then he proposed a trade to me. I selected both sides of items and I confirmed it. So, my items disappear, and he told me that he hadn't received my items. And then, he said that he's a steam supporter and he can solve this problem. This person used his alt account https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198967586727/ to take my items for nothing.

He pretended that he's a steam supporter, and I did not believe him firs. By this time, because of that site, he gets my account database and changed my nickname and wrote a description to follow his directions. Then I realized that my account was stolen by this guy. He's steam id is https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198360770134/. Please contact me!

    Hello, with the given description you have given, your account is most likely compromised. Please do the following to regain control of your account:


    1. Change password immediately and change it anywhere else you have the same password set. The scammer will try to log into your email with it when he loses access.


    2. De-authorize all other devices here: https://store.steampowered.com/twofactor/manage


    3. Revoke any API keys set. Their only use, if you don't know what it is, is keeping control of your account. https://steamcommunity.com/dev/apikey


    Once you have done so, please reply here so that we can continue with the report.

    Hello, sir, i regained my account back, thank you for your help. This guy just sold all of my items in steam community market, so there is no chance of getting them back. But we can still try to report him anyway. I'm sorry for making you wait for so long.

    If you no longer have access to your chat logs, you can recover it via another method. Please go to:

    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.
