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.

Are Steam Wallet Scams bannable by SteamRep?

    I guess you already know why I am posting this, it's because I got scammed by this method. I posted a report on a user here a couple months ago, but I got this reply from a moderator:

    Unfortunately, SteamRep does not accept reports dealing with cd keys, game codes, steam codes, Pin codes etc.. due to current Investigative Policy.

    You are welcome to report the user to Valve
    In order to do that, you have to:
    1. Visit the accuseds profile
    2. Click MORE drop-down located at the top right of the page
    3. Choose REPORT VIOLATION
    4. Select the violation, then describe it and provide the evidence
    5. Click SUBMIT REPORT

    Obviously as you can see, SteamRep doesn't ban the steam code scam, right?
    Well I was scrolling through the archived steam reports just then, and I saw a similar report regarding Steam Wallet fraud, the exact report type I submitted. This guy also got scammed, and he sent a report, attached sufficient chat evidence, and got the guy banned (here is the link to the report https://forums.steamrep.com/threads...counter-strike-global-offensive-items.109479/) . I'm not sure if the policies have changed, but I would really like to get the guy who scammed me banned as well, so other users won't fall into the same trap. Here is my closed report: https://forums.steamrep.com/threads...counter-strike-global-offensive-items.192704/


    Thanks!

    This is my bad. I didn't realise the report that I referenced was submitted in 2015, as the accused profile was only banned today by a moderator. Sorry for wasting your time.
