Appeal Review Request Reminder: Appeal reviews are not appeals! Reason for Appeal Review: New evidence not produced in your original appeal Past Appeal: http://forums.steamrep.com/threads/110743 Steam profile: 76561197999202938 (Centurion) Make your case: Hello there everyone! I am a 22 year old student, who's graduating my bachelor degree this year. My story goes as the following. I've been using Steam for a very looong time(with my one and only Steam account). I remember I bought Counter-Strike when I was around 4th or 5th grade. You can check how old my Steam account is. (back in the days we used to check the Steam ID digits - now Steam shows that on our profile). Without lying or trying to bend the facts - Back then, in 2012, I was a dumb kid, who couldn't afford video games and whose parents wouldn't allow him to use their debit card on the Internet - because you know - it's not a safe place to put your bank account information (being from Bulgaria and my parents being grown in the socialist regime of the Soviet Union - you can imagine how much more conservative they can be). So what I did, as a fan of WW2 video games was scam a guy on Steam to get Day of Defeat: Source. I wanted this game so much. I had participated in giveaways many many times on SteamGifts for that specific game but I never won it. I had saved the money to buy it, but my parents wouldn't allow me to write down their debit card's information on the Internet. (it was back in 2012, e-commerce and online transactions were not as popular and as secure as they are now + keep in mind that I'm from Bulgaria - which is not developed country like Germany or UK) The games I had by that type - I bought from a physical store that was close to the school where I studied. You were buying a physical copy of the game that you wanted, that came with a disk and CD-Key to add on steam. Needless to say, they had a very limited choice of games, compared to the Steam Store. DOD:S by that time was one of the very few WW2 games that allowed you to play multiplayer and that's why I wanted it so badly. The only other alternative was Call of Duty 2, which by that time I was tired of playing already. So I scam this guy and I don't even think for a second about the consequences this can and will have. Not only my reputation was ruined, but the game was removed from my library from Steam. Then we have a 3 year pause, where you all start to wonder why I didn't take any action. The truth is that is the time where I got really hooked on playing GTA: San Andreas Multiplayer. It was a role-play server - very popular one which quickly consumed my time (and my social life). I spend around 3 years playing just that and World of Warcraft from time to time. I logged on Steam from time to time, but it was mostly just WoW and GTA on my to-play list. Then in 2015 I remember that I have to do something about my reputation, because I want to trade. I file an appeal, I try to contact the victim, but without any success. In my opinion, by that time I still hadn't grown enough for this. I wasn't patient enough and apparently - I didn't care much. A few years down the road, I sold my gaming laptop and started changing my life. I stopped playing games, I expanded my social life, got a girlfriend, started reading books, meditating and preparing for university. I don't want to say I completely quit gaming, because from time to time - we were going with friends to an Internet Cafe(I don't know if you guys have this in your country, but here in Bulgaria this is like a cafe with gaming rigs where you pay to play per hour.). I used Internet Cafes, because I didn't have a gaming computer back at home. In the last few years of my life, I changed a lot for good. I spent three summers in the United States thanks to a program called Work and Travel. I wrote 2 books - 1 about digital marketing and 1 about personal development - AND I started my own online business which helps more bulgarians(like me) increase their financial education. Now as things have been going great in my life recently, I decided to buy (with my own money now, no more parents' funds) a decent gaming rig. So except all the work around my university and my business, now I relax with a few games in my free time. As soon as I bought my PC and logged in Steam - I remembered about my SteamRep ban. This thing I did in the past hurts me and I want to get cleansed. I will be honest with you - I don't have plans to invest time in becoming a trader. I'm not even sure if I'll trade at all. But having my old account( which I am very sentimental about as I have grown with it) BANNED from SteamRep is just ugly and disgusting to me. Now, I have tried to contact the victim again. I want to refund the guy. I want to refund him 3x if I have to. He deserves it. But I can't reach him. I remember last time in 2015 when I was writing my appeal - I couldn't reach him and now I can't reach him again. If you could give me any tips or advices on how I can get him to talk to me and how I can refund him - that'd be great. I will apply a screenshot where you can see that I added him as a friend of mine on Steam, but he hasn't accepted. I also wrote a comment on his Steam Profile - asking him to me accept me so I can refund him. Please, I think I deserve a chance, because I think what I did 8 years ago doesn't define me who I am. Every human being changes a lot from 14-22 years and we all know that. When you're at that age, every few years, you become a new person - you're so unpredictable. Nowadays, I am a grown person and I am proud to be part of the society of where I live. I don't break the laws and I pay my taxes.
