    I made a previous appeal to try to remove my scammer tag but I haven't responded in a while on that appeal causing it to be rejected. (http://forums.steamrep.com/threads/76561198038542882-russian-agent-twilight-sr-scammer.6987/) I would like to make a new appeal and hopefully this will be the last appeal I make. Basically the story is that I was marked as a scammer and the person who made the report was known as Excyte. (http://steamcommunity.com/id/excyte). He posted a screenshot of what he said was me trying to scam him. ( http://i47.tinypic.com/357g7zr.png) on this thread (http://forums.steamrep.com/threads/report-76561198038542882-twilight-the-sniper.5664/). From what I remember I don't remember chatting with him about any hacks of some sort. One of the admins (http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561197998609739) that helped me in my previous appeal stated-

    Appellant has not actioned requested information for 2 weeks. The claim that the screenshot was a fake has not been substantiated and I have not found information which would back this claim. However, I do believe that there was a relationship somewhat between the reporter and the appellant. First account (reporters) was VAC banned, new account (the reporters) was then subsequently added to his friends. Mutual friends are shared with no reason as to why according to the reporter. The time period which the two were on friends is longer than what a 'random add' would entail.

    Appellant has denied this screenshot but I tend to believe he had said this in chat. That said, I believe that he did this as a result of the 'relationship' which he had accrued with the reporter. There have been no subsequent reports of Russian Agent offering hacks to other users to change their hats to unusual. Just the reporter. The idea is quite preposterous. If he genuinely wanted to use this as a scam attempt, if he had failed with the reporter he would have moved on, to the next and the next until he hit pay dirt. I believe he had not. That said it can be equally argued that he had built some 'trust' with the reporter to launch the ruse.

    Either all, neither party reporter and appellant has been forthright with me. I am operating on the judgement that this chat has occurred. An equitable decision here is that the tag will stay pending a conditional period where it may be possibly downgraded. For now, the tag is justified.

    I'm not really sure of what to do now because I have no way to prove Excyte wrong and Excyte has no way to prove that his screenshot was official yet I ended up getting marked.
