    Steam Teamviewer Scam

    Hello,
    My friend got scammed on Steam earlier today through Teamviewer. He was trading a CSGO knife. The instructions were for another person (my friend's friend lets call him Smith) to turn on Teamviewer so that the guy who scammed could see my friend giving the knife in Steam to Smith. During this the scammer had no control of Smith's computer. However, when my friend traded with Smith, Smith never got the knife, and my friend did not have it either. The scammer then logged of . Any clue how this happened? I guess take this for a warning if you are doing any trades with the use of Teamviewer.

    No it wasn't, just curious how he did it, as well as posted as a warning.

    You said the 'scammer' claimed he didn't have the knife? He could have lied?

    I never said the scammer claimed that hedid not have the knife, as for Smith, he is our common friend who said he does not have a knife 100% he is a good irl friend who was willing to share his screen right after. The bottom line is neither my friend of Smith have the knife so it must have went somewhere.
