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.

    did you encounter a link that let you download a file with a ".scr" extension? for that is malware that hijacks your computer, and auto-trades all to a mule account. Its much as you describe.

    Yeah, I got hijacked a few days ago, and lost about 2 buds. Just send them a ticket saying that you got hijacked along with some proof, and hopefully, they will give your items back.

    1. There are no Steamrep middlemen, only partner community middlemen. The profile you linked is from Skial and Darkly gaming.
    2. Please fill out a report. This is not where to report a scammer. http://forums.steamrep.com/forms/scam-report.2/respond
    3. There is a good chance it was an impersonator, double check the profile from your trade history, and paste the profile URL into steamrep.com.
    4. Do not ask for donations.

    I contacted Customer Care on 21st January, as suggested on first post, and today they replied me WITHOUT returning my items back. This is odd. Another guy that was scammed from same person, in the same way, had his items back :confused:

    do you have the steam chat with him also? if so, make a report in our report section of the forums.

    Valve will not return your items, for it is regarding a out of steam trading.

    Auto-quote because Steam Customer Care said "You did not trade any items for this gift." This is becoming a joke. Did they ever check my inventory history? Now I'll take a screen and send them.
    I'm really disappointed from Customer Care.

    That is because you didn't TRADE for the game, you got it GIFTED, which is NOT supported via steam trading in whatever way. Really. Even if you traded items right before or after it to that person, it DOES NOT MATTER.

    Valve only supports that what was traded within the steam trading / trade offer. When you use paypal, that is not supported by Steam Support, and as you agreed to transfer the items to the other account, and that it functioned as expected, they will not return the items. With a steam support ticket, all you can achieve is that that account may get trade banned by Valve.

    As for a youtube video, that would be fine, as long as its readable etc.

    I accidentally traded 600k worth of items to someone for free (meant to be for their knife) and I stupidly turned off the email confirmation thing, the person won't give the items back. Am I f✿✿✿ed? I screenshotted everything and included it with the ticket.

    Not really. Valve announced they won't restore scammed stuff. You getting a "refund" or w/e is prolly all you can get, and I'm even surprised they would.

    I Think this guide is no longer valid.

    The guide only tells you what to do if you're hijacked or have a revoked gift, nothing about items. If it was different before, I think it was edited at some point.

    Okay, so I've been looking for a way to revoke a gift I gave to a friend, but am no longer friends with.

    I don't really want the person in question to have the game anymore, because I feel they don't deserve it. Is there any way I can just remove the game from their account, all together?
