  3. ARMA 3 Scam?
3 years ago#1
Some guy says he is willing to trade me ARMA 3 Deluxe for Sniper 2.

Showed me proof of the key.

But it's obviously a scam. Who would trade a 60 dollar game for a 30 dollar game?

What would you recommend?

Someone who got the game for free, or a scam artist who will file a complaint with Steam and provide proof that he owns that key and will get your key revoked and possibly account locked.
Oh god there's not enough liquor and therapy in the world to undo that.

When trading with people, generally if you feel uncomfortable about something just end it and look for someone else to trade with.

This is why steam sucks, you shouldn't even be allowed to trade games.

I checked his SteamRep, SteamTrades and all and nothing showed a Red Flag.

He sent me a picture of the Steam Key.

How can you get them illegally? I redeemed the key because I thought I could just check that it was legit, but I guess I can only redeem it.

I would just keep a copy of the chat log, a picture of the chat, and the picture of the code he sent you just in case, and if nothing happens then you are fine.
