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.

    It's probably been at least a year since I got the tag, but at the time I was fairly new to all of this and wasn't sure how to get it removed/if it would go away on its own/etc. If anything, I would think that would somewhat show I'm not a "shady" individual as I've had no problems since then. If I waited too long, I apologize. I'll also go ahead and apologize if I'm not detailed enough, as I can't remember all the small details

    Background: I was middlemanning for someone on my friends list, I had just gotten admin on Skial a couple weeks prior so for the most part people trusted me. However, I had chosen a bad person to start middlemanning with, as he turned out to be a scammer (got the tag shortly after this incident, and was also banned on steam later). We did around 3 trades, all paypal, and everything seemed fine. However, apparently the payment "didn't go through" or something and that's about the time I find out my "friend" is a scammer. Happy ending, though, as I was able to return everything eventually.

    Evidence:
    The only thing I could find was this http://forums.sourceop.com/threads/71942-Scammers-Database-(steamrep-com)/page33 which as I look back at it, I should have noticed my friend wasn't trustworthy. I was a Skial admin, though, I wasn't impersonating.

    Summary:
    I screwed up and would like a normal reputation, just so people don't think I'm untrustworthy.

    The "fake group" seems to be the real admin group.
    Now, why did you choose to middleman for the scammer who was trying to use you to help him scam?
    you need to explain your relationship with part time terrorist a lot more completely,

    edit: also please disclose any/all steam alt accounts you have, including any that can be linked to you even if not yours.

    As far as the relationship goes, we weren't anything more than Steam friends at the time. At that time I was a fairly active trader, and met a lot of people through tf2op and tf2tp.

    He asked me to, and at the time he did not have any tags on SteamRep so I had no idea he was a scammer

    Oh, I must have overlooked that, my apologies. As I said in my original post my memory isn't the greatest as I tried to just move on from it, the only reason I could think of me going through with the trades is thinking "with a middleman scamming is impossible." I was brand new to cash trades/middlemanning, I shouldn't have jumped straight to unusuals as my first middleman, and I really regret trusting him and thinking he was a friend. Again I apologize for any confusion, I don't mean to sound untruthful, I'm just trying to come up with a reason as to why I was dumb enough to middleman for him.

    I'm sorry if double posts aren't allowed, but I would also like to point out I have not middlemanned or done a cash trade since then. The only cash trades I have done was through TF2Shop, which is done with bots.

    Explain in the last screenshot linked above, what each of your replies are referring to/or the intent of each comment.
    "I surely hope you're referring to Part-Time"
    "I like how you're the scammer, here"
    "Have fun trying to get $2011"

    Also explain your exit from Skial.

    I'll admit I got a bit defensive at the end, when he called me/us a scammer I said "I surely hope you're referring to Part-Time" because I was only a middleman and had no intentions in scamming. "I like how you're the scammer, here" and "Have fun trying to get $2011" referred to his outrageous price (The only reason I didn't bring it up earlier is because I wasn't the one paying).

    My exit from Skial was because I didn't enjoy the game anymore. I also felt like most of Skial looked down on me due to this incident, so I basically quit TF2 altogether for a little while. At the time I got admin, I was enjoying it, but after seeing how much actually went into it and how much time was needed I quickly grew tired of it. After Bottiger removed my admin I just left, only making comments here and there since then. If there's anything else you need to know, I'll be happy to explain.

    Because I asked you to disclose any accounts that can be linked to you, even if not yours and you didn't. Once again, I feel you are not being honest with me, Its hard to judge a user if they changed or not when they continually are not truthful. MMing for a scammer is not something any community can endorse, especially from a former admin. I believe you knew he was marked as well prior to being confronted in the chat about it based on your replies/reaction. I'm, going to have to deny this appeal.
