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.

Can I found out if this person is from SteamRep?

    Recently I was reported as an imposter of another Robin Hood and trying to scam somebody, which is false because the thing I did and why he came to me wasn't really scamming, but I know I did wrong.

    Now, this person came to me and said he was from SteamRep, I didin't question it at all, because I don't want to pick a fight with a moderator or admin that could ban me, but he said that he'd have to "suspend" my backpack for an hour and I had to give over my keys and all of my metal. I did what he asked and then he said that a bot will send a friend request to me and hand over my keys and metal back, yeah well, it hasn't come yet and I fear that I've been scammed, and to make matters even worse I sold alot of things for my keys and metal.

    I don't want you to do anything about it YET, but I wish to know if this person is a admin/moderator.

    P.S: Do you "suspend" backpacks, and do you do it like he did it?

    SteamRep Admin:
    Indeed, when someone claims he / she is a SR moderator and or administrator it's always wise to check it on SteamREP.com to see if it's true. And a SR mod/admin would never ask for your items. I'm sorry you've been scammed in such matter though :(, I really would advice as Thomas already mentioned to report him so he / she can be fully marked as a scammer if enough evidence has been provided.

    There;s no mod or admin that would ever do that, for steamrep or for valve themselves.
