1. There is no such thing as a "pending" ban or Steam admin. Anyone threatening your account is a scammer trying to scare you. Read more.

SteamRep Guides

Guides for everything.

  1. Safe Trading Practices

    Extended version. Includes common scams and how to avoid them.
  2. I was scammed by admins on SteamRep.com! What now?

    If you were scammed by someone listed on the SteamRep middleman list or admin list, or anyone claiming to be from Valve or SteamRep, follow these instructions EXACTLY.
  3. Item verification is a SCAM!

    There is no such thing as "item verification" or "item checking". Anyone coming to you saying you need to do this is guaranteed to be a scammer. There are no "Steam admins" who get involved in trades either, and if you do what they say you'll lose your items. Please confirm who you are dealing with any time someone says they're an admin: https://steamrep.com/tips/pretrade. Don't trust any links in Steam or screenshots of anyone's "reputation" or "certificates".
  4. What is a middleman, and how do I use one?

    A guide to explain how middlemanning works, and what to look out for if you don't want to be scammed.
  5. Account research and obvious alts

    Use these tips to determine if an account appears to be an alt or throwaway account. You should never trust an obvious alt, as they're far more likely to scam.
  6. Common Scams and How to Avoid Them

    An in-depth overview of how many of the most common scams work, and how you can avoid them.
  7. How to verify an admin or middleman

    Explanation of how to verify if someone is really an "admin", especially from steamrep.com. Don't accept any other kind of verification.
  8. Help! Is this site a scam?

    Yes, it's most likely a scam.
  9. About Account Hijacking

    There has been some misinformation about phishing and Steam account hijacking going around. A lot of blame gets placed on the victims, by those who later get hijacked themselves without understanding the complexity of it. How does phishing still exist with Steam Guard? Doesn't 2-factor authentication make that impossible? Are people really that stupid in Steam?
