Wasn't sure how to reply to your message Wiki sorry, I'll hide this afterwards, but it was because as soon as I suggested doing anything but me sending first, he blocked and ignored me. No consideration of a middleman, no stating his rep, no asking for mine. Nothing. That's not something someone does legitly, likewise not replying to the message on here. I would report him to SR but I'm too lazy, I personally feel the case is stronger than those given a Caution from reading on SOP.
For that matter though I feel I have the right to give my own opinion on something on my own trade thread, especially as IF he was innocent he would have explained his actions. I even put that at the end of my message to see if he would contest it. I never accused him of being a scammer, simply said that was my suspicion. I also have rep from sales of the glasses but my point is he never wanted to check rep.
PM'ing by clicking on the name of the user (Not the one saying XX wants to trade XX, the one where notes are added) then clicking the envelope icon. In regards to him not wanting to do anything but you sending first, that I gather to be personal preference. I'd do the same (Minus block and delete). I always encourage lower value trades that might be scams to go ahead. Worst off you'll lose 1 ref and can go through Steam support, mark them as a scammer on SteamRep and get him permanently banned on here and TF2TP?
Here doesn't ban for someone being marked a scammer I thought, reported someone at least for being scammer and they weren't blocked from here? Also this is going to sound really stupid but I can't find the envelope, you mean on this page: http://www.tf2outpost.com/user/8, I have the Block/Love/Steam Profile/BP but that's all? Thanks for your help.
Well not just if they have 1 mark, but if they have been marked numerous times on SteamRep they get banned then have to explain how they got the marks. Must be a mod+ thing then, sorry. Sneeza must have implemented the message thing so we can message users directly. No problem. If you want to go ahead and do the deal with that guy then be my guest by the way, jsut make sure you get screenshots/ chat logs of it in case it goes wrong. If it does go wrong, let me know and I know Rob from SteamRep so can get him marked easily.
