    This bot has scammed around ~$700 so far. All items in the inventory are scammed. The bot fakes being a Marketplace.tf bot by hacking into the account of a Marketplace.tf seller, checking for when the seller puts items into Marketplace.tf, cancelling the offer to the legitimate bot and sending it to this bot instead, which gives the items to this bot - scamming them. This bot is not owned by Marketplace.tf and is a drain on the TF2 economy.

    ^ He said "bot has scammed", not "scammed me". He is obviously referring to the highest spike in the bot's backpack graph.

    @Viness: the bot does not "hack into accounts". Victims share Steam account credentials themselves when scammer invites them to visit a phishing website, please read https://marketplace.tf/blog/posts/YHLZOB
