    After coming from a vacation of almost 2 weeks, I tried to log on to Tf2 outpost but noticed that I was tagged as a SR SCAMMER. I found this odd since I do not remember being banned before I left and I didn't do any trading during my vacation. Also, my steamrep page (http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198058123690) shows that I have 4 alt accounts which I have never heard of. My username is very common, so I believe that there has been a misidentification. I haven't had any previous problems with steamrep until now.
    I hope this can be straightened out as soon as possible. Thanks.

    It has been 4 months now since I posted this appeal, and I was hoping someone would get around to looking at it by now. I have been marked as one of a scammers four alt accounts even though I have absolutely no relation to them whatsoever. I understand this as a common mistake from the administrators, but it practically disables any trading I'm trying to do. It is a shame since I've worked hard to keep my account clean from such accusations.

    Thanks for your time.

    1. disclose any/all alternate accounts you have or can be associated with you.
    2. what is your relationship (if any) with the accounts listed under your SR profile.

    1. This is the only account I have created in Steam so far, I have no alternative accounts.
    2. I do not recognize any of the accounts listed under my SR profile.

    I didn't see a way to edit my previous post so I'll just add this here:

    Update: I created a new smurf account today (19.2.2016) for playing with my lower-ranked friends. Here's a link to the profile: http://steamcommunity.com/id/phengismaister69
    STEAM ID: STEAM_0:0:162395093

    ...Not that it really matters as far as this case is concerned. I just figured I might as well mention it for honesty's sake on the off-chance this case gets eventually processed.

    It seems that SteamRep's appeal form has changed during the time this appeal has been open, so I figured I would fill in the information:

    Appeal Plea: I am innocent of all listed offenses
    Appeal Reasons: Wrong Alt - Alternate account is not my account
    Victim Repayment: No, I committed no fraud
    Previous Appeals: Only this thread
    Alternate accounts:

    | steamname: PHENGIS.MAISTER_69
    | steam3ID: [U:1:324790186]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:0:162395093
    | steamID64: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198285055914
    | customURL: http://steamcommunity.com/id/phengismaister69
    | steamrep: http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198285055914

    As mentioned above, this is an alternative account that I have used for playing with my friends (as a smurf) in the past, however I rarely use it anymore.

    Reputation Threads: I don't have any.

    Appeal description: I was incorrectly marked as one of a scammer's alternative accounts. I am not connected to these accounts in any way.

    I tried searching my steam id on these forums, but could not find any reports made about my account. If there is any evidence I could provide that would help proving my innocence, I would be happy to provide it.

    Since this is definitely one of the older appeals and you seem active on your appeal, you may add me on steam to discuss.

    I spoke with You Are The One privately on Steam a few months ago. After our conversation, he said he will have another admin look over the case details and inform me when the process is done. I was under the impression it wouldn't take very long. I haven't received any information on the matter (possibly due to timezones restricting communication) since then and now he seems to have deleted me from their friends list. I was just wondering if the case is still being processed? Is there something I have to do other than wait?
    Thanks.

    I took a VACation, removed everyone. Just got back a few days ago. I have our chat and my notes, Ill indeed send this to another staff member to expedite, if you do not hear anything within a week, feel free to "bump" your thread, you wont be warned for doing so.

    Due to the time this appeal has been pending w/o admin(s) addressing and other mitigating circumstances, tag will be downgraded to a caution.
    You have been given a exceedingly rare second chance since you did commit the offense, make sure you do not try anything like that again.
    Please note, further transgressions or if we find you lied to us, may result in you being retagged w/o the possibility of a new appeal.

    Appeal granted.
