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.

    In Dota 2 game, there are a lot of trading sites offering the bump/up function for the users to promote or bringing up their posts. Whenever the post is brought to the top, in most cases...

    1. There are people adding you directly once you bump/up your trade post
    2. The Steam profile of the person who add you is fully "PRIVATE"
    3. The Steam user who add you and you accepted his friend request starts chat by greeting you with "Sir"
    4. Their typo(s) for the name of item or amount of cash/money
    5. The achievements or game hours spent for the Dota 2 game is very less but requesting for valuable items
    6. There is no Dota 2 game in his Steam game(s) but he requests for Dota 2 item(s)

    I've been through a lot of users on different trading sites of Dota items and there are many Steam users tend to scam others. I was a victim in last year. So, be careful guys. If have any thoughts or ideas to share, lets have a talk ~

    Well, not really must suspect a person by every mean point right? Of course it has flaws.
    Well, what I had listed down are just referring to the majorities of people I met on Steam for Dota 2 game. :)

    Well, your account is level 4, no game badges, literally just 2 games (both of them f2p), 86.4 hrs of dota in the past 2 weeks (most likely farmed).
    I can say that your acc looks like if it was of some scammer.

    Saw that one on SRs backend but was not solid enough of a connection, didn't occur to me to check the forums for him posting it. I dont have access anymore to tag it but will let someone know to tag asap.

    edit: and deny the mod app

    You need to appeal using your main/original account, just letting you know.
    Well, since you admitted that you're a scammer,
    I can say, yep, you are a scammer, and your account have all the specs of a regular scammer nowadays.

    yes i did scamming before i joined SR and yah after tht i repayed victims whom i could find and also as guilt i gave my time to review each and every report posted here on SR and tried helping them yes i scammed 90% of people try to do it until and unless they have been givin authority or responsibility there are also casses of admins and mods cught doin frauds and scams so yah not evry persn can be 100% clean but they can try to be clear of themselves and accpt mistakes and instead of repeating them lear from them and be a better person mayb thts y every forum has an appeal section wch gives forgiveness to the guilty if they find them eligible enuf to be forgiven

    So, some people told you to steal stuff and you went and steal?
    Your parents/teachers/family/relatives didn't teach you what is wrong or right?
    And even worst, you blame the drop system...

    Sorry son, no excuse
