I'm trying to sell my steam account for some bitcoins, and I thought this would be a good place to try and do it. I'm looking to get ~155 bitcoins for it, and want to try to get a -very- well respected member to act as a middleman. The total value of the account comes out to $1770 (from steamcalulator.com), I'll provide a list of games at the bottom of the post just because its pretty long. I'm not going to provide a username publicly on the forum just incase someone from valve is perusing the board. The account has no VaC bans or reports, all the games work online, and I've owned it myself for 5 years. I think that's all when it comes to describing the account, but if you have any other questions please PM me. I'm offering 5btcs for someone to act as a middleman, I don't exactly know what this kind of service entitles in terms of payment, so if its insultably low, just let me know. I will insist that the person who does act as a middleman be very well reputable, hero member, and just generally someone who isn't going to run away with anything. Now I know that I'm just a newbie here, so I've tried to think of a process that will ensure all parties involved at least have some peace of mind. It goes as follows (Its a little long and probably roundabout, but just stick with me):
 
1. Find a buyer and a middleman (That's a given Tongue)
2. I'll send my login information to the middleman with Steamguard enabled, and PM the verification code once he lets me know he's ready. From there he can make sure that all the details about the account are true, and PM the buyer that the account is legit
3. The buyer then can transfer the bitcoins to the middleman, and let me know that he's ready.
4. Once the middleman gets the transaction verified, I'll disable steamguard, change the password, and send the account details to the buyer (Or middleman, I don't think it would make a difference)
5. Once the buyer logs in and changes the account details, he can contact the middleman, who can send the bitcoins my way, taking the 5btc for himself
6.Badaboom, badabang, happy seller and customer.
 
I think I covered all the bases there, but if theres a glaring security hole somewhere in there, let me know.  
 
-A note regarding online games-
Theres a couple on games on the account that need a 3rd party login to access the online features (Company of Heroes and GTAIV spring to mind), so I'll try to change all the passwords on those and ship them off with the account details. If I miss one or two, the buyer can contact me via email and I'll change the accounts as quickly as possible.
 
-A note regarding username and such-
Now I don't work at valve, and don't know what kind of safeguards to prevent people from selling/trading accounts, so I think it would be wise to take some precautions so that no little red flags pop up a Valve HQ
 
1.I'll remove most of my friends from the account, but I'll leave the couple that haven't logged in for 300+ days, this will make sure there isn't one big "friend dump"
2.I think its a good idea not to immediately change the community profiles name, location, or other such details for a while, but instead do it gradually
3.This may just be me being paranoid, but I might register the account to a new email that's similar enough to my old one, I know people get new email addresses all the time, but hey, can't be to careful.
 
Well I think that's it, don't hesitate to ask me questions about anything or question my method of trading, if anyone has a better idea of how to go about this, just let me know. Thanks

When you say Current Value of the game, that's the price that Steam has it set at? You would be hard pressed selling an account priced at the exact market value of each game currently within the account considering if someone wanted all of those games, they could just as easily buy all the games for the same amount and not have to worry about possibly getting robbed(not suggesting you're trying to do such a thing)

If the account really is valued at the total of each game, I suggest lowering the price to get more interest in it. I'm gonna guess you'll need to go at least 50% market value of each game as it's value.

DO NOT TRADE

This is in direct violation of Steam's user agreement, and is furthermore extremely risky. The seller can at any time after the sale reclaim the account by contacting Steam Support with CD-keys or credit card numbers associated with the account.

No reputation as well.

Would it be against the TOS to sell for BTC and then gift all the games but not the account itself?

You can't gift games that have already been tied to a user account.

I'll act as middleman for the transfer if you want.  I assume my credentials are adequate for the task?

If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.

Thanks Inaba! Yeah, you definitely seem to fit the bill haha. Well the account is still for sale, and I know that selling steam accounts are risky for the seller because of the chance someone could report it as stolen, but if there is anything else I can do to make any potential seller feel at ease, tell me and I definitely follow thru! If anyone wants to propose a -reasonable- price for the account I'd be upto it, to me 175btc sounds reasonable, but I can be flexible.

I would also have to agree with terry. Steam accounts are very easily receoverable and steam will not protect you against scams.
