Be careful guys! I banned for that:

Perhaps your friend scammed someone and was trying to use you to launder/hide the keys in case he got caught. A one-way trade of 75 keys is absolutely suspicious.
He are not scammer, he is my best friend many years ago. He got many reputations on sourceop too and trusted trader.
75 keys? I would be suspicious, too.
To be fair, you can't really blame them. I mean, it's not really common for someone to receive 75 keys out of the blue. I'm not saying that you are a scammer, but you have to admit that at least to their eyes it seems a bit suspicious.
But if steam support will check back trade history, i traded with him high valued unusual hats too and i traded back to him.

Only when keys, in massive scale are traded back and forth, it is a money laundering scheme seen a while back. Caught by some user and ended up becoming big news(sorta)
What you did resembled the Russian Money Laundering scheme. . though B/c Steam said scamming. . . I think there is something missing here.
old but relevent
In banks transactions with over 10k euros or sth like that are invastigated as well.
If you're sure you didn't do anything wrong and nothing got removed from your acc then I have bad news.
3 months ago a guy got scammed by an impersonator who used my name and avatar, and I got the trade ban, the full story is here.
TL;DR: Steam support doesn't help anyone with a trade ban and refuses to admit if they screwed up.
I received a trade ban which I did not deserve and had it removed by Steam support after explaining everything.
Maybe I'm lucky or perhaps everyone else leaves bits out of their stories.
Believe me, I tried everything, talked to them for weeks, even told them what to check to prove my innocence. I've never even talked to the scammed guy before the incident, and since the screenshot was of a chat window they obviously didn't care enough to do anything that involves actual work.
That's so goddamn retarded.
The Deethz guy you got the keys from isn't trade banned.
He why got banned? He given to keys me... he is my friend
Veri engrish, much skilz, wow!
If the keys were the reason for them being trade banned, then his friend would also be trade banned as well. Any account that had the scammed items pass through would be banned until proven innocent. As we can see here, the friend is not trade banned.
The support ticket clearly states that any stolen items have been removed which could explain why there are not 75 keys in your inventory. Unfortunately, backpack.tf seems to tell a different story when looking at the amount of items and account value over the past month.
In reality, we could probably just ask the question, why would someone even if they were a friend, just give you 75 keys to hold on to for no good reason? I somehow doubt the excuse would suffice for that, let alone anything else I've brought up.
I have traded the 75 keys to another user and nothing removed from my inventory.
well sorry but you seem fishy. End of story for me :')
This is interesting.
OP has been reported for scamming before.
Check my sourceop
What kind of CS GO items were you buying for 75 keys? Even buds don't cost that much. If you were indeed buying items, there wasn't any need to give you so much keys.
If you were indeed trade banned because of the keys, they would have been removed already. But I see 62 keys in your inventory.
I hazard a guess that you must have promised CD keys or money in return for someone's item or game and failed to deliver the CD keys or money after taking the item or gift and cooked up some lame excuse. And traders like you always ask someone else with lower rep to go first.
You are a trader. You must have done something before or after the 75 keys trade and blamed it on your friend or gotten your facts mixed up.
it's 75 dota treasure keys. After i traded 75 keys for a CS:GO knife.
Omg! STEAM police rocks)
erm... i traded 100 keys, another 100 keys, 50 keys, and 40 keys, for nothing (in 2 days) and i didnt get banned
(also traded many keys for nothing last summer, and last year)
i dont think those 75 keys for nothing was the cause of trade ban
people reported you for scamming
most probably, i got scammed a few weeks back and reported the user, nowadays he is trade banned, dob't know for how long
"Your account was REPORTED for actions relating to item trading scam."
End of story.
Rofl at that auto-reply.. I bet your message wasn't even read.
Trade ban or not...
Am i the only that thinks it's insane to pay 75 keys for a CS:GO Knife? Even if it really is worth that much.
