+Rep. Great trader: fast, fair, friendly and reliable. Thank you for the smooth trade!
This is a complete scam report pertaining to a key trading scam performed by scammer Solomon (steamID64: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198132512846).
It provides undisputable audit trail and evidence, and is submitted for your consideration in the spirit of protecting community members from an extremely audacious and prevalent Steam scammer.
The key trade occurred on IndieGala's forums (in a private conversation).
I've sent him my key for Ancestors Legacy first. Afterwards, instead of sending me a key for Dying Light, he sent me a key for Dying Light Developer Tools - which does not include the game itself.
He outright refused to rectify the situation, and on top of that tried to force me to pirate the game instead.
The entire exchange is documented with the screenshots below.
If you wish to authenticate those screenshots, I can invite you to this private conversation with Solomon (you will need an IndieGala account for this). Neither of us can delete messages in the private conversation, so you can review it in its entirety.
If you wish to authenticate my Steam account's licenses and library, I can provide you with a direct live access to my system and Steam account via TeamViewer. This way you can verify that the key Solomon has sent has in fact activated the Light Developer Tools (listed as "Dying Light Temporary Access" on the licenses list):
and it does NOT include Dying Light executables required to run the game:
After his refusal to rectify the situation, I have posted this scam report on IndieGala's public forum:
After four days this culminated in him returning to our private conversation - trying to coerce me into deleting the evidence of his scam under false pretenses:
On top of that Solomon has also been exposed using multiple Steam accounts to fabricate his false positive trading reputation.

Never traded with him through Steamtrades. In a trade on another site, I offered him a replacement for the games he wanted. But it was more important for him to ruin my reputation than to get games. Was sent by another trader to ruin my reputation. A dirty scammer who spoils my reputation for the instructions of other traders. If he received a non-working game from me, he would remove it, but he does not delete, but simply ruins my reputation. More than a week has passed. So why doesn't he delete the game and want a replacement?
Just look at my profiles on marketplaces. Honest traders have no problems with me, on Indigala there are only negative reviews from the same scammers with 0 reputation (which is confirmed by other traders on the site), or from those who could not be contacted to resolve a possible problem. I have 400+ positive reviews and I think it must mean something.
But at the same time, I did not refuse him to trade, although I knew that he didn’t even have an account on any site, and I knew that it could be a scam! And on the same forum it is not he who writes, but the real puppeteer of this scammer.
I definitely do not recommend it !!! Scammer!!!
