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.

I got a message from a friend, don't know if this is true

  1. I got a similar post to this.

    My friend said I'm under investigation and might get banned and my account locked. Is this fake as well?

    This is fake, there is no such thing as a pending ban. Some extensions add those warnings to profiles with a CAUTION tag on Steamrep, but you do not have one of these. Additionally, "Waiting Approval" is not a valid type of tag/status/reputation, this has been edited in via the scammer to trick you.

    Also, I split this post into its own thread.

    SteamRep Admin:
    Just as a follow up - your "friend" if you've known them for a while is likely compromised or even if they just added you could have been hijacked. Be sure to report the account to Valve so they can take the needed actions.
