    Appeal description:
    Hi SteamRep.

    Years ago now I think 2013, I was new to PC gaming in general. I had been playing TF2 for the most part after starting in 2012. I was still young at the time and there was a trade server where I often past time in. However, I was still pretty young at the time, and on that server I was told I could become a mod there if I followed these steps to "put me in the system." I was stupid and young and fell for it and my account was hijacked and I assume my account was used for some kind middle man or something. While I was waiting for Steam to get my account back, I could see in my inventory had things like unusual Team Captains in it. Once given back to me by Steam everything like that was gone and my inventory was restored.

    I thought it was over but then I was unable to join trade servers or some community servers due to Steam Rep having me banned or marked me as a scammer. This really made me sad but I never bothered to actually get it repealed. I was never that big of a big trader at all and I play TF2 very casually. Time went on and I drifted away from TF2 for a good amount of years.

    However, now I have found myself playing TF2 again and I really want my account to stop having this Steam Rep ban tag on me. I would still like to trade for items, but with how the tf2 economy is these days, its almost impossible for me as I cant join any larger trade servers and I cant even do trade offers with bots for items like decal tools.

    I would just really like to get this thing off my shoulders. I really dont know why I waited so long, but I guess I kinda reached the end of my rope and I dont want to put up with this annoying crutch anymore. I'm not sure if I provided enough info or anything as this was almost 6 years ago now, but I would really appreciate it if you guys could repeal this so I can just go back to being a truly normal user. Thank you.​

    You need to provide screenshots of the steam support ticket, make sure you do not cut or edit the screenshots.
    Please provide the date you got hijacked and the date you recover your account.
    All screenshots need to be uploaded to our forums.

    Based off the email date I got my account back May 16th 2013, and I contacted Steam support on May 14th 2013, so I am assuming the 14th was the same day I was hijacked. I hope these are the correct ways you wanted the screen shots.

    Could you tell me where that should be or where I would find it? I've been searching my email but I cant seem to find what you are looking for.

    Im going through my emails more and now Im worried as I cant remember how exactly this all went down. Email seems to imply that I had to make another account in order to contact Steam Support and Im thinking thats where the actual support ticket is? But I dont remember this other account at all or whatever email I had to use for it. I sent Steam Support a message to see if they can show me my ticket from back then but I haven't heard back yet.

    I also logged onto Steam support but it only shows recent support tickets, and this was 6 years ago, the only ticket I see now is the one I just sent today asking if they can send me my original ticket. Any advice on what to do now or do I just wait to see if Steam Support will help me find it?

    So I got a response from Steam Support. The original ticket is deleted, so what do I do now? I cant give you a picture of it if it doesn't exist anymore. I dont know what to do as I dont think its possible for me to get a picture of the ticket at all anymore. I've done the best I can, showing you the emails from back when it happened and my account has never had any other problems before or after, only those 2 days my account was hijacked. Please dont keep this tag on me, I feel like I've given quite a lot of information about what was happening to me and I feel its unfair to make it stay because I literally cant provide something because Steam deletes it after 6 months while I've still shown you the emails and been as cooperative as I can.

    Unless theres something else I can show you that Steam hasn't deleted by now I guess I can only ask you to make this decision based on what I have been able to give you. I really want this all fixed up and I really want this to go smoothly but I dont think its going to be possible to get that ticket as Steam deleted it and will not show in-depth account security. Im linking what steam support said to me below. Thanks for reading.

    Sorry for another reply as I dont want to be spamming you, but I did get another reply from Steam Support, I guess this is the best I can do.
