1. There is no such thing as a "pending" ban or Steam admin. Anyone threatening your account is a scammer trying to scare you. Read more.

    Appeal for BANNED BY SR

    Steam profile: 76561198069818399 (Free Swag)

    Appeal Plea: I commited the offense(s), but it was minor or I disagree with SteamRep policy
    Appeal Reason: [Evidence] Fake - Report had falsified evidence
    Victim Repayment: No, I committed no fraud or had no direct victims
    Previous Appeals: No, this is my first appeal here

    Alternate Accounts:
    None.​

    Appeal description:
    I was banned for impersonating a steamrep admin, Vintage Cobra. I didn't do any harm, I didn't try trade scam or middleman scam or anything. Me and my friends were messing around so I changed my name and picture to Vintage Cobra to trick my friend that he was in a lobby with a steamrep admin. So we continue and I forget to change my name back and go to make a trade on the cs go lounge chat because I am a CS:GO trader and someone calls me out on trying to fake being vintage cobra, I tell him that I done no harm and I hadnt scammed anyone and changed my name back straight after.​

    There is a bit of a hole in your story, because for that you didn't need to change your steam Custom URL.

    But if they went to check my page on mozilla firefox, internet explorer etc it would show my old custom URL.

    But I had a custom URL before so I did have to change it and it would be more believable if I changed it to vintagecobra?

    Hello @Free Swag,

    We will require screenshots of all your trades between February 20, 2015 up to now, the point where you upload them on this forum.

    As we need the Steam Inventory History of the traded items. We have some requirements to meet, so here's what you need to do.

    Required Steam Settings for this exercise:
    • Open the Steam Browser by double clicking the steam icon in the tray in lower right corner of your screen.
    • On top left, open menu "Steam" and select "Settings".
    • On the new Settings dialog box, select "Interface" and enable the tick in front of "Display Steam URL address bar when available".
    • Click "OK" to close the Steam Settings dialog, applying the setting.

    Making the screenshot:
    • In the Steam Browser, go to your Inventory, by clicking your Nickname in the top middle and selecting "Inventory"
    • On top right, click the "More" button that is shown above the game labels for the various inventories you have, and select "View Inventory History".
    • Seek the trade that relates to this on the number of pages you have (look below for the requirements).
    • Go to the start menu and type in the seek box "snipping", you will find in Vista and later the "Snipping Tool", click it to start it. It directly wants to make a screenshot. Select the full window excluding the very top of the steam browser window where your LOGIN name is shown. But INCLUDE the Nickname, the steam URL bar fully, both sides and full bottom of the steam browser.
    • Click the "Diskette" icon, or click "File" and then "Save As...", and save it to your desktop.
    • Come back here and make a reply.
    • Drag the image into the reply on the forum from the desktop.
    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.

    It has been more than a week since I submitted all of the wanted proof, would like this to be reviewed soon so I can get back to betting on CSGO Lounge.

    It has been more than a month since I applied to be unbanned and this is still flagged as "Need More Info" Even though I have given all the information required.

    Looked into the evidence and you also claimed to be a valve employee, that and impersonating a SteamRep administrator is enough for me to deny this appeal.
    Appeal denied.
