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.

    They happen after you reach certain post/like counts. They don't do anything.

    Howdy. I found out from a friend with steamrep that I got a pending trading ban, but I can find why or when I got it. It would be nice to get a little bit of help.

    Common tactic lately is what I reference an extortion scam.. they try to trick you into thinking your banned because of "Bugged Items" they direct you to another user that is a fake steam admin because there are NO SUCH THING.. they give you a URL to send the items to which is yet another account to send the so called "Bugged Items" to.
    There are No Such thing as Bugged Items... no such thing as steam admins or whoever..some will go to the extreme as to make fake images from steamrep profile pages to show you are banned or about to be banned but NOBODY here will ever EVER ask you to send them items or anything of that nature.
    Anytime you have concerns like that feel free to ask any of us here or via PM.

    No the thing is that he didnt do that, and I did have him as a friend for a while and he did send me a picture of the pending ban on my acount (and it did had the link to my acount and stuff) he didt ask for bugged items or send me a link to a "steam admin"

    Yes that is fake and a scam attempt - HOWEVER if you had the user friends for a while and had talked to them before it is very possible that account was hijacked to use for that situation. It has been very common lately.
    So you could very well report someone that is innocent and didn't even have control over their account.
    Sounds like you need to check into that and perhaps report it to Valve so they can alert the true owner of any issues like that.

    Yes thank you. Looked trough how he or they could have made it and stuff. It said the game the profile (that looked like mine) was in the pending trade ban game XD

    It's been said already but, he wouldn't know about your "pending ban" since there is no such thing. If he didn't ask you to move items, 100% sure he would eventually.

    Sometimes they ask you to move items, sometimes they ask for your password and other login info instead. Often they ask for both, and if it's a friend you know and trust, they probably convinced your friend to give out his/her login information too.

    No, SteamRep is not affiliated with Valve or Steam. The tag only serves as a warning to other members of the community. However, some community sites choose to utilise the SteamRep API to ban users from participating in their community who have certain banned / caution tags.

    You need to use the "Report Violation" button on the users profile, to report the user to Valve / Steam.

    Hi, my account on SteamRep has an unconfirmed report dating back from 2014 and it's still on yellow. Now I'm wondering if it's still planned to be investigated or will it stay this way forever? I looked into the "appeal" forums but I can't find answer related to this.

    Steam Support no longer returns items from any successful trade.

    I was banned a long time ago after getting hijacked. At the time i was in middle school, and I feel not only was I a bit impatient, but completely ignorant about something like this would work. wanted to know if there is a way for me to re appeal
