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.

Does reporting people even do anything?

    I reported 4 people with clear evidence of them attempting to scam me and it seems like all of the reports were just denied. Do I actually need to loose the items by getting scammed if I want to punish these scammers?

    Makes me pretty pissed off when I see a service with the main goal of catching scammers not catch scammers...

    Reporting with proper and good evidence does a lot yes.
    We are not here to "punish" anyone either -that isn't what SR is for.
    We are not here to "catch scammers" either.

    I'm not going into those you created here - making a GF thread for that is against FAQ.

    Also you may want to read how to properly report someone with acceptable evidence so you know in the future. Would be a shame if someone reported you with such lacking evidence and we tagged you, I'm sure you would be rather upset prob as much as those you reported.
