You're on your own with trading scams from now on, reveals, as they will no longer be returning traded items that people feel have been 'scammed'. There's "enough information" to avoid becoming a victim they say.
While they "sympathize with people who fall victim to scams," it's down to us to spot when something is suspicious. Those identified as a scammer are banned from Steam Community features such as trading.
"Our community assigns an item a value that is at least partially determined by that item's scarcity. If more copies of the item are added to the economy through inventory rollbacks, the value of every other instance of that item would be reduced," reads the.
"We sympathize with people who fall victim to scams, but we provide enough information on our website and within our trading system to help users make good trading decisions. All trade scams can be avoided."
Steam Support doesn't even provide information on why Steam users find their accounts hit with a trade ban, or get locked. They argue this is to prevent the fraudsters from figuring out new ways to scam.
"Steam Support relies on several data points to arrive at a decision to ban or lock an account. Users intent on committing malicious activity, most often done to other users, are constantly trying to gain this data to use in future scams, fraud and hijackings."
