    Ran from a 25 key spycrab on camera

    Player Name:
    Hora / at the time of the incident it was: 1hpeu


    april 13 2021

    TRADE | US

    Detailed Explanation / Screenshots / Demos:
    I spycrabbed twice vs this player vs 10 and then 15 keys and payed up myself both times.
    Then we had a third spycrab for 25 where I won, then they then ran and blocked me.
    I recorded the whole spycrab as well as the player typing in the chat log and then immediately blocking me.
    I took 5 screenshots of the whole log (which is visible and typed into by him in the vid), beginning with his offer of a 25 key spycrab and then agreement in chat.
    I can prove that "Hora" and "1hpeu" are the same acc if necessary, but I think the steamID should be sufficient.
    As it stands now, I communicated with Hora once more thru someone on their friend list and the player has no intentions of repaying the debt. They just act like they have no idea who I am.
    My wish is that this player be ID banned from skial trade community servers to prevent future scamming.

    The crab & active chat log/block at end:

    Do let me know if you need anything more on my end. I'm happy to cooperate.

    I also have a pic of his profile card still under the name 1hpeu in steam chat w/ the link visible. I don't have perms to attach photos in this part of the forums so someone will have to help me w/ that.

    This happened on firepowered servers according to the watermark on the video on the bottom left. Also this guy hasn't been on our servers for 2 months according to stats

    Should be reporting this on firepowered's forums imo

    I hear you. I took action and the player has already been banned from firepowered, and soon vatican too. I felt it was justified to seek a ban on Skial servers as well because of the recency of the event (it literally just happened) and because the evidence is, in my opinion, totally damning. Obviously this player is a spycrab scammer, and from my point of view, if action were to be taken on Skial, it would benefit me by giving incentive to this player to return stolen items, and would benefit Skial by keeping this proven scammer off the trading network.
    While I accept your right to deny my request because it took place on another server, I ask you to please consider what the benefits of giving this guy a second chance in your community would be, and the fact that this happened on firepowered, not an obscure server where question could be raised of the legitimacy of the gamble.
    Thank you for the time.

    While the initiative is respectable, we don't intervene with stuff that occurs in other servers. Furthermore, we don't accept spycrab reports for marks on SR anymore, they may still be banned from here but your screenshot format isn't what we accept here as they need to show the account URL, steam profile and chat in one screenshot, not just the chat to circumvent forgery.
