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.

    Hello, I was banned for fake reputation!
    I have no Idea why this is! I cashed out my backpack and was fortunate enough to sell every item within a few days. At first when I created a sourceop rep thread, I thought that you had to have it approved before you could get rep on it. After messaging an admin, I learned this was not the case. I had done a few deals with others, so I asked them all to post rep as soon as I got the ok from the admin. I collected all my rep and sold my backpack, I only had 1 instance with a scammer who was impersonating a person with lots of REP. I can get accounts of the people I did business with, present paypal evidence, whatever you need. I have it all that I can screenshot. Another Issue that I have is that you listed Battery (Someone who has bought a few items from my backpack) as my alt. This is not the case, and if his only offense is being my alt he should be unbanned. I only have 1 alt account, and I use it to spy on my server and suprise ban people breaking the rules while they think I'm not there. The link to my alt is: http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198044108243 .

    *EDIT* I recently talked to an admin and they clarified what the issue is. Its about the fact that I made Battery's rep thread. I know it sounds stupid, but he couldnt figure out how to make one. I just logged on and made one so that he could continue buying things with paypal. I don't know if there is any way to check like very old steam chat? I would have that for you and clear this up in an instant. I really don't know if there is any way to prove my statements, but I can provide my trade history and his payment. Unfortunatly, my rep thread was deleted, so I cannot collect every account of people +repping me. I can however link most of them and you can personally interview them.

    Please tell me what you need me to present in order for you to consider my case. Even though I've cashed out, I really dislike having a scammer tag because I am not one, and I have a trade server/ community that I have to set an example for.


    1. I have a picture of the outpost trade, saying that Im selling the backbiters billycock for 65$. This can be linked to the trade history picture and the paypal payment. If you still have the rep thread that you deleted (Mine) then you can see that battery gave me rep for buying an unusual backbiters billycock. Outpost.jpg payment.jpg

    2. I have many photos of payments recieved for tf2 items in paypal.

    I really don't know how I can prove that I Just made the account for battery, and that hes not my alt. However, I have provided enough evidence to show that these are 2 different account, and rep was exchanged accuratley.

    Thank you, steamrep admins for providing this service to us and taking your time to make sure you didn't wrongly punish them. I appreciate it.

    After digging a tad, I accept your version that you only made the thread to help the other user, the claim was backed up by trade and paypal screenshots. It is extremely stupid and risky to share account credentials, don't ever do so again, If one of you were to be marked for an actual scam both could be tagged and it would be extremely difficult to get the other tag removed even if it was not you. No other issues found other then non scam related server bans. also for reference http://www.tf2items.com/item/1030095740
