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.

How do I view my message history with someone if they have blocked me.

    So long story short, someone tried to scam me, luckily for me, he was stupid and he failed.
    Shortly after, he blocked me, then me being stupid, I closed the chat window on accident.
    Now I'm wondering how I get back into it. Can anyone please help?

    9/10 times you can't. I've seen people re-add someone, open web chat, or something of that sort, but even if you manage to pull that off it will only show the last few lines.

    Welp, he gets off this time, hopefully the next victim isn't stupid. I've reported him to Steam anyways, hopefully they can see the logs.

    I'd like to see Valve let us save logs locally on the client as a selectable option but I don't think that will ever happen.

    I know one small trick.
    See if he joined any groups with very little members (30 might be the cap... or maybe it's 10).
    if you can join this group, you can then go to your group tab, and get it to display the members of the group.
    Next, click on send message, and it will show you the recent log.

    If the group has too many members, the only option that comes up is to "show all members", and I haven't found a way to send a chat message from there.

    Steam is no longer showing members in the groups tab.
