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.

    Hello guys, some guy accidently reported me for scamming. Here I send proof. Should I be worried about my account?

    I fixed that image so it wouldn't embed but anyway that is FAKE - they are trying to trick you and likely hijack or apply some sort of phishing setup.
    Ignore them/delete/block them from discord or whatever platform your using. Nobody will ever contact you using other platforms from Valve.

    I tried to appeal after being marked as an alt to a scammer account but I wasn't using the original account that was marked when filing the appeal. That account was deleted over 5 years ago (not exactly sure when). What do I do in this case?

    Not much, users must appeal with the originally tagged account, even accounts that they claim they've deleted. Best I can suggest is you contact steam support and try to regain access to the account.

    It's more than just a claim. Clicking on the steamid doesn't go to the profile. Pretty sure it would if it wasn't deleted? It was such a long time ago so don't think getting access to it again is possible. The account I'm on currently has been my account since 2015. The original account was gone around then.

    FYI, users cannot discuss specific cases in the general discussion. At the end of the day, users may only appeal with the originally tagged account and this is not negotiable. That account committed the offense, therefore it must be the account to create the appeal.

    Should be a system in place for a situation like this. Not sure where to discuss it since my appeal got archived but I'll stop discussing it here. Just don't have any other avenue for communication on the matter.
