    So my friend, who had access to my account, used my account to scam people. One of those people has reported me here. I am not a scammer, I never thought of scamming, and my friend has betrayed my trust for doing that. I already told steam support about the incident because i really don't want to get banned. I know that some of you might not believe me, but I don't know what can I do to not get banned. The victim doesn't believe me, which is fine, that is why I came here to ask you this question. Will i get banned for scamming because all the evidence is pointing against me?

    Thank you if you even found this thread.

    You are responsible for your account at all times, that is Valve's stance that is ours.
    You have not been reported here at this time. If a report is submitted you have 24hours once it was created to respond to it and state your case.

    Hello, I have said that one of my friends has used my account to scam. Well it wasn't true, a scammer, I don't know who, has used my account to scam. Luckily he didn't scam anyone. Now I have a question, will i get banned because of this?
    If you answer the question, can you please tell me the chance of getting banned? Thank you.

    Please stop making other threads for the same thing you already asked and got an answer for.
    I merged that older thread with this one and I already answered you.
    Is there a problem with the answer I gave?
