    Appeal description:
    Earlier in october 2018 i ended up falling for the "pending ban" scam and my account was hacked by somebody in the philippines (he also tried to log into my gmail)

    he messaged almost everybody on my friends list and some of my friends reported me thinking it was me and not the hacker i'm pretty sure

    When i got back to my account i found the hacker talking to himself in another language-https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/443492591804350521/501263344003579904/unknown.png

    He also made it so it said i was "banned" on steam rep and later on it said i wasnt banned- https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/443492591804350521/501140350514102283/unknown.png

    i didnt even know i was banned until today because i just wanted to go onto a tf2 server with my boyfriend and it wouldnt let me in, please i just want this to be over with.​

    If you are claiming hijack you must prove such.
    Start with steam support ticket where they confirm you were compromised.

    Fulls screenshots of the entire ticket please.
    Also keep in mind I'm only suggesting what is needed - I will NOT be the one handling the appeal.
    You must be patient and await someone to follow up.

    Are there any admins i can add on steam to discuss this with? I have multiple servers that i would like to be able to go back onto and i just found out that i cannot log onto certain websites because of the ban. I would really like to get this fixed and i dont want to have to wait for a few years :[

    Sorry i havent replied ive been extremely busy and i forgot to check up here.

    So basically I fell for the scam thinking somebody was an admin when they werent because they hacked somebody on my friends list and used that as a way to trick me. Since then ive learned, at the time i was just really confused though.

    Please be more specific. What exactly did they say to you, and how did they gain access to your account?

    Alright so i got a message from my friend saying "hey i accidentally reported you so can you message this person so they can verify your account" and i was like alright sure, so i added them and messaged them. then what happened was i got something from my email with a code and he told me to give it to him, so i gave it to him and he ended up being able to change my password and username so i wasnt able to get back into my account. I contacted steam and got it back i think 6-9 hours later but he had already messaged a good bit of my friends list trying to trick them into doing the same thing and thats why somebody had reported me because i dont think they knew that i had been hacked.
