    Appeal for BANNED BY SR

    Steam profile: 76561198016529695 (invit3d)

    Appeal Plea: I commited the offense(s), but it was minor or I disagree with SteamRep policy
    Appeal Reason: [Process] Mistake - Admin misunderstood evidence or made a mistake
    Victim Repayment: No, I committed no fraud or had no direct victims
    Previous Appeals: No, this is my first appeal here

    Alternate Accounts:


    Appeal description:
    As you can see, I have been banned very long time ago, like 4 years ago. I was banned not for any kind of scam, or anything, but for "ruining reputation for steamrep middleman". The thing is, that I did not try to ruin any kind of reputation. I will explain everything what happenned in a chronical order.

    P.S As you can understand, i cant write a very informational history what happened, or give any proofs, because it happened 4 years ago.

    I was selling my unusual hat for paypal. Dont really remember for unusual it was, i just remember that I was selling it for about 200USD. One middleman, or atleast a guy with same name as middleman, wrote to me, and I trusted him, and I went first for him. He was a scammer, and i got scammed. Then i contacted many steamrep admins, and told them that one MM scammed me. After telling them the story, I gave them full link to the profile of the SR MM, and they told me, that he was an impersonator. So actually i got banned by a SR MM impersonator, but I just couldnt believe that the guy was an impersonator and i really thought that the real MM scammed me and kept telling them that. Like few days later, I realised, that i was really wrong. I found out, that there was another MM with same name in my friend list with name (1) near it, so the guy with (1) probably was the real one. Like 2 days after, i got a bad reputation for trying to ruin MM rep.

    TL;DR because of my own stupidity, I got scammed on 200$ + as a gift got free ban on steamrep, because I thought that the MM that scammed me was a real MM, and later I realised he really really was impersonator.​

    Hello @rokshis,

    Provide inventory screenshots of the traded items to the scammer, and provide the ID block of the impersonator that you got scammed by.





    Requirements of the screenshot(s):
    • Exclude the Login name and steam wallet amount that is on the very top right.
    • MUST show the Steam URL in top left.
    • MUST show the NICKNAME in top middle.
    • MUST show the Steam window fully from left side to the right side of the window.
    • MUST show the related trade from the day before to up to at least 2 days after the trade or current date if that is earlier.
    • MUST show to the bottom of the steam browser window.
    • You are NOT to edit the screenshot, and NOT to blank out anything.
    • If you are using a custom skin, we will require you to redo this with the default Steam skin.
    For an example, click this screenshot: http://files.steamrep.com/1/2014-10/2014-10-12_20-16-58.png

    It might be strange, but for some reason, the trade is not there. I remember this, that it was on trade history for like 3 days and after that it just was gone from my history. I dont know how to explain this, maybe this have happened to someone else. But to prove this, that I am not lying or joking I will provide my whole inventory trade history.

    https://puu.sh/gV2Hf/75dcbbac67.jpg (here I received the unusual Geisha Boy) This was the hat i got scammed on.

    My later history after receiving the hat until now:

    https://puu.sh/gV2Kt/88ce823b07.jpg


    What you can see from my history, that I have received the hat, but haven't even ever gave the hat to someone else, but for some reason, its not in my inventory.. If you want, i can show my trade history trough any screen sharing services.

    I am not very knowledgeable with these days tf2 trading, but if I have heard right, its possible to track item somehow? This way we could check to who I traded the item.


    Just please, dont think that I am trying to get rid of my steamrep by lying. Im definitely not, just this is a strange case, and I dont know how to explain all this shiet.. As I said it happened 4 years ago..

    Just tell me how I can provide you more information or solve this.

    If you can, atleast remove the SteamREP banned status, and put "cautious" on me, or something. I need to take back my reward from CS:GO Lounge.. Ahh

    Hey , i am not a SR mod/admin but trade history cannot be deleted or removed so you should show your full history ( make a video ) or search again for that trade ( it should be easy to spot since it is in purple ) .

    Good luck with the appeal hope this helped

    A link with a video inside of my inventory history. You can clearly see there, that i haven't traded my geisha to anyone, but its not in my inventory. If you can explain this somehow, please do. But I know for 100% that this is the hat, the MM scammed from me, and for some reason its not in my trade history.

    Hello, I know, that it is not a good thing to ask exceptionally to check someone's appeal, but please just listen to what I have to say, just 2 minutes of your time. Thats all I ask. I have been unfairly and misleadly banned for about 5 years now. Fact is, that I have been scammed, and because of my own stupidity, I thought I have been scammed by a real middleman. Therefore, I tried to prove a real moderator (he was also a middleman at that time) to be guilty. Now I know for sure, that I have been wrong, and I wish to fix it up in any way possible. I am ready to be fully honest and I can do anything you ask, just to prove, that I am innocent. I could even pay for your precious time (this is by no means a bribe. Just I really evaluate other people time), just so I could get this situation solved. If you think that could be done, please add me to Steam or just help me via my appeal: http://forums.steamrep.com/threads/appeal-76561198016529695-invit3d-banned-by-sr.96291/.

    Hi there, I apologise for the delay. You are going to need to locate that trade in your history or otherwise explain where the hat went. 2 weeks notice to follow up or this appeal will be concluded.

    Hello @rokshis,

    Your appeal has been reviewed and it has been rejected for the following reason(s):

    - Lack of sufficient evidence to overturn the original judgement
    - Falsifying evidence
    - Lying or other fraud during the appeal
    - Lack of followup

    Despite your appeal being rejected, it's recommended that you avoid future situations that might appear to be fraud with Steam trading. Sometimes people reported to Valve by its users can get their accounts trade banned by Steam Support.
