    Information:
    Someone who impersonated Shadows, a Harpoon admin, sent me a message on steam asking me for the price of my unusual. The impersonator offered me $75 via steam codes or $65 via paypal / bitcoin. As an inexperienced trader, this got me thinking it was worth it. Long story short, he got the unusual in the end and I got nothing in return.

    Evidence:
    Never tell your password to anyone.
    17:19 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Hey
    17:20 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Hello
    17:20 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: How much you want for the ether trail unusual
    17:20 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: I'm looking for 30 pure but I can negotiate
    17:21 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: I can offer 75 dollars in steam codes or 65 dollars via paypal/bitcoin
    17:21 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Is it clean though ?
    17:21 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: I unboxed it in Harpoon last week
    17:21 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: So yeah, first owner pretty clean
    17:21 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Ok cool
    17:21 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Hmm
    17:21 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: It's a good offer, but umm
    17:21 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Do you mind having a middle man?
    17:21 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Like nimajin or something
    17:22 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: oh yeah I was about to talk about it. If you are ok with steam codes I can pay via half paid codes. Im not sure if you heard it before btw
    17:23 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: I've never heard of those
    17:23 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Its basically a way for both sides to get paid at the same time and steam plays the middleman role here
    17:24 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: So it works like this. First we agree on the trade in steam chat so if something goes wrong we can contact steam support. After that I will tell you the first 5 digits of the code (full code is 15 digits). When the trade is done, a notification will appear on your screen giving you the details of the full code
    17:24 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: You will redeem the code and confirm its worked
    17:24 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Hmm
    17:25 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Alright
    17:25 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: I'll do it
    17:25 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Via Steam codes
    17:25 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Ok lets make the agreement first
    17:25 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Alright
    17:25 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: 75 dollars for Strange Unusual Smokey Sombrero
    17:25 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Is that right ?
    17:26 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Yes
    17:26 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: That is right
    17:26 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Do you know where to redeem the code ?
    17:26 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Yep
    17:26 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Ok type in Y6DEX there and tell me when you are done
    17:26 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Okay, It's done
    17:26 - You have accepted the trade request from Shadows | No Taunt Offers.
    17:27 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Keep the page where you redeem the code open btw otherwise you might not see the notification
    17:27 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Okay gimme a sec
    17:28 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Okay, I've sent the hat
    17:28 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Ok. Did you see the notification ?
    17:29 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: No
    17:29 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Wait a min
    17:29 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Probably the trade got marked as unfair
    17:29 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Is it supposed to pop up on the screen or in my mail?
    17:30 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Pop up on the screen
    17:30 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: As a small green line
    17:30 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Yeah, nothing showed
    17:30 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Then yeah it probably got marked as unfair because the unusual you just sent is also locked and it wont be unlocked until you redeem the code
    17:31 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: So we gotta make it appear as a fair trade so you can redeem the code
    17:31 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Do you have anything close to its value based on steam market prices ?
    17:32 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: In my backpack right now?
    17:32 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Yeah
    17:32 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: I don't think so
    17:32 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: It's my most expensive item
    17:32 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Isnt there anything close to its value ?
    17:32 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: No need to be exact same value
    17:33 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Just gotta make it tagged as fair
    17:33 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: I honestly don't think I do
    17:33 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Wait lemme check
    17:33 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: I can't give the Unusual Airdog because it's been reserved
    17:34 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: I was about to tell you can use that but you are not gonna sell it to me. If you want it back after the trade I can just trade it back to you
    17:34 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: But we gotta make this trade got tagged as fair
    17:34 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Hmm can you add me on discord so I can see what you mean..?
    17:34 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Otherwise I wouldnt be able to trade this unusual because It will stay locked until you redeem the code
    17:34 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Like, send a picture of it
    17:35 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Just try to send me a trade offer. Put the unusual that you just sent to me and I will send you a screenshot of how it looks
    17:35 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: You will understand what I mean with locked
    17:35 - The trade request was cancelled.
    17:35 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Oh, trade offer
    17:35 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Sec
    17:37 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Okay, I've sent it to you
    17:37 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Ok
    17:37 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: https://gyazo.com/f5dd299c90dcd5d165e463c88d3e859c
    17:37 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Here
    17:38 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Hmm okay
    17:39 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Is it possible to just send me the rest of the code?
    17:40 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: I would if I could but in this situation its just in steams hold because the trade got tagged as unfair
    17:40 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: And without you redeeming the code I wont be able to trade the unusual anywhere because its currently locked
    17:42 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Hello ?
    17:42 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: It's still not appearing
    17:43 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: It wont appear unless with trade again for another item that has value close to that. It will get marked as fair and you will see the code
    17:43 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: You will redeem the code. You will get the money and I will be able to trade the unusual I just paid money for too
    17:43 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Idk... it seems sketchy
    17:44 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Bro all I want is to send the item I just paid 75 dollars to my main account. In this situation we are both in a big loss
    17:44 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: I paid 75 dollars for no reason and you traded your unusual for basically nothing
    17:44 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Thats what Im trying to solve
    17:45 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: So if I trade the airdog, will it be locked too or will I be able to get it back without any hassle?
    17:46 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: It will get marked as fair. The code will appear on the page you typed the first 5 digits of the code. After you redeem the code the lock of the ether trail unusual will go away and I will trade your airdog back
    17:47 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Okay
    17:47 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Do i do it by trade offer or do we do it here?
    17:47 - You have accepted the trade request from Shadows | No Taunt Offers.
    17:49 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Uh hold on my phone ran out of battery

    (at this point, I joined all-trade 3 to confirm with Nimajin if Shadows is a trustable person)

    17:49 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Ok
    17:49 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: It appears your are online in phone but whatever. I will trust you
    17:50 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Yeah I went on it then it died
    17:50 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Sec, trying to turn it on
    17:52 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Still didnt receive something
    17:52 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: Um hold on
    17:53 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: You are online on phone. Im not blind
    17:53 - Dice ⇋HG⇌: And you apparently just got a free unusual
    17:54 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: ?
    17:54 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: If you are not willing to co operate I will just report you. I told you the way to solve this but cant do anything if you are not doing them
    17:55 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: Have a nice day
    17:55 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: and It was your own choice that made you trade your unusual for free. I told you how to get the code but you are not doing it. Its your own fault
    17:56 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers: If you have nothing to say I will just remove you and report you because you made me pay 75 dollars for a unusual I cant even trade because of your own ignorance
    17:57 - Shadows | No Taunt Offers is now Offline.
