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.

My scammer will never be punished because he used discord.

    We talked in steam chat and then moved to discord (all recorded) but it doesn't matter because it wasn't all 100% steam. Going to suck when I hear that more people were scammed by him but the mods won't do anything because he used discord, guess that makes it ok.

    Please keep in mind we are not here to "Punish" others - your evidence just wasn't per our policy requirements therefore unacceptable.
    We don't go either way if the evidence isn't correct per what we require so if the event happened is entirely your word only at this point vs theirs or what was otherwise noted in the report.

    Please read that link - it explains what we do and do not accept.

    Also keep in mind that it is against General Forum FAQ to make this thread.
    Please see this as well.

    Yeah well they actually don't care about you or any scammers even if you show them all the proof they need (steam linked on discord). I'd suggest you -rep them on other platforms as those help more and some actually do care about the fact that people are losing money and try to get him tradebanned directly. Hope this helped you :)

    That isn't true at all - we do care but there are certain things we can not review - we have reasons we do not accept things outside of steam. Be no different than someone saying they spoke to someone over the phone yet they showed proof they were dialing that phone number.
    We can only review certain things under certain factors which without exposing what we look for is how we must maintain ensuring we are tagging someone correctly and with due process. You wouldn't like it if someone reported you for something yet they didn't or couldn't prove they were really in that final conversation for a deal with you in whatever format for which you used...you would be likely highly upset.

    Since this thread was clearly against FAQ and has served its purpose as the Op has read it I will archive.
