    Appeal description:
    Hi I am TrueLunar https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198069820369 I am contacting today to report my real life brothers account https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198267248436 as stolen. On the account you can find the following:
    This is due to him (being 12) falling for what he called "A very real looking valve employee by the name of Rui" who then added his with an account known as "Item Database" https://steamrep.com/search?q=76561198860998474 . As he has never dealt in scams and is unfamiliar and uneducated (and disregarded my teaching as scolding and trying to ruin his fun) he fell for the "Duped Item Verification Scam".

    In historical data made the day after he reports getting scammed https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198267248436?t=1544579694 at 01:54 you can see he still has his old name of "dancing dave's dancing rave", soon after at 22:07 you can see the name change take place https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198267248436?t=1544738825

    At 00:11 you can see his account being listed as banned by SR https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198267248436?t=1544746309 and from this to current https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198267248436 you can see him removing all of his friends including me https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198069820369 , and our two real life friends, these include falsely listed as alt Rusian https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198148533914 and other friend
    Jurassic Pounce https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198271894781

    Uploaded will be 3 images called "Email 1, Email 2, and Email 3" which are photographs i took of the phone he had linked showing his account info being changed. I did so as to provide proof that can be proved to not be faked.

    Email 1.jpg even list the IP address used in changing his account list here https://tools.tracemyip.org/lookup/175.158.226.52 as being in the Philippines which is highly false as we live in Virginia, USA.

    More proof is how the account is in a steam group i made for us real life friends only https://steamcommunity.com/groups/DongleMeisters#members

    Other things of note:
    We are in contact with valve in getting the account back and have reset his credentials for his email. As such one of the VERY first things we are going to do is have him re-add me,Jurassic Pounce, and Rusian as a friend and clean out his friend list of all people he does not know in real life (leaving only us 3 in his friends list) and changing his name to "The grey wall on the left" and will be making his profile picture be the attached "Future Profile Picture.jpeg"

    Finally to confirm my identity are two images called "Timestamp 1.PNG" (cropped and compressed to fit 3MB limit) and "Timestamp 2.png" to confirm, yes I am TrueLunar https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198069820369 contacting on behalf of my brothers banned and hijacked account.​
