He just scammed me out of my unusual hat! I just logged on to steam and my hat was in his inventory!

    Please give a detailed description of what happened and provide screenshot evidence to back up your claims (screenshots of chat, trade history, paypal, etc.). All screenshots should be completely unedited. We are unable to investigate proofless reports.

    So I was sent a trade response from someone who wanted to buy my Miami nights fur lined fighter. As I went into confirmations, a confirmation that appeared to be from that person was there, so I confirmed the trade. But as I accepted the trade, i realized that there were no items on his end. By the time that happened it was too late.

    Here’s the request (this person had impersonated the person in the second picture, and had almost immediately changed his name after scamming me)

    Based on what you've shown evidence of above, it appears likely that your account has been compromised. For your safety, please change your password immediately, and if you see an API key listed here - https://steamcommunity.com/dev/apikey - revoke it. Without taking these steps, it will remain possible for your trade offers to be manipulated.


    Do you recall having been asked to sign into an unfamiliar website recently, likely not long prior to when you lost your items? This is the most common way that your account can become compromised.

    I changed my password and revoked access from any other sources and it has stopped

    Can you answer the question I asked above - do you recall being asked to sign into an unfamiliar site recently?

    Please provide uncropped (whole screen visible)/unedited screenshot proof of your interactions with the user who asked you to provide them with your item's "item index". 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.

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