Yes. Reading the chat again made me notice how incredibly stupid I was.. This was actually the only time I didn't check the steamrep profile when trading.
The guy got banned, fortunately. But I didn't get the item back. I for some reason decided to sell every item I had after this and stop playing TF2, but I came back eventually. having absolutely no items (including weapons btw.) is frustrating though, i don't recommend it..

If both of you make a list of the weapons both of you are missing, (regular ones, not strange/killstreak ones) and pm the list, i'll give you both whatever you need

No, but somebody tried to scam me.
I was younger at the time I just got my first unusual. It was a "unusual backbiter's billycock" with the effect Stormy Storm. At the time it was worth 12 key, I bought it for 16. Not only that but when i tried to sell it someone added me to do the friend scam. (I did not fall for it). only to sell it to another person for 10 keys.

I can't recall ever being scammed, worst I've probably been is sharked when I was a newbie to TF2 (just an inference though, not 100% sure). That isn't to say I'm not on the watch, I've had to block a lot of fishy accounts this past year, and I've seen various people lose their accounts. Just always be sure the website you're entering your log-in into is safe.
