    Appeal for BANNED BY SR

    Steam profile: 76561198066319020 (Watchfulwalrus)

    Appeal Plea: I am innocent of all listed offenses
    Appeal Reason: [Accounts] Wrong Alt - Alternate account is not my account
    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:
    This was all a simple mistake. I came back to TF2 after a long hiatus and decided to check out the backpack.tf website. After logging in I was told that I had been suspended from the site, odd, I hadn't been on the site for a while and had not been banned the last time I used it. I inquired with my brother who lives in the same house with me and he said to check out the steamrep website. I discovered I had been banned here as well, 97 days ago, for having a banned "alt account".

    This is not my account, it is my brother's. I assume because he has been caught partaking in fraudulent activities and that we would have the same IP that my account was considered an alt of his.

    My account has thousands of hours in multiple games, including 500 in TF2. My account is three years old. My backpack was on friends only and I've never traded here before (so no +rep threads). My backpack is also quite full with hundreds of items inside. All the opposites of your FAQs obvious scammer alt list.

    Hopefully this will be enough evidence and this will all be resolved quickly.​

    Did your brother repay the users he scammed?

    I'm not sure. I asked him and he said that he just didn't.

    Yes it does, sadly it looks like there isn't much that can be done at this point.
