Valve Ceases To Reimburse False Claims In Lost In-Game Items
Valve believes that all trading scams can be avoided.
Valve has announced that it will cease to reimburse false claims in terms of in game items. In a drastic policy change Valve has decided to stop compensating people who take advantage of this policy and use it to create scams. Valve Trading Q&A stated, “We sympathise 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”
This is understandable as Valve had to spend much of its time going through each and every claim to make sure that it was valid one or a scam. The policy further states, “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.”
Valve has released an entire questionnaire regarding this issue. We recommend checking it out in full over here.
