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.

    Scam Report

    Report Type: [Rep Fraud] Impersonation with intent to defraud
    Virtual item type involved: [TF2] Team Fortress 2 Items

    Accused profile: 76561198020776874

    Victim profile: 76561198261052087

    What happened? Description:
    This was a scam attempt on me where the accused person posed as a Valve employee threatening to ban me for having "duped items", and to give them the items to inspect it. This is the account of the person posing as the Valve employee. There is another account, whom introduced me to the fake Valve employee saying that he "accidentally reported me". This is his account url --> https://steamcommunity.com/id/N3L3N0/ I did not know either of these people before the scam attempt. I did not accept any trade requests or give any trade offer links to the scammers, that's why I didn't provide any backpack screenshots.​

    I am the original owner of that account (https://steamcommunity.com/id/N3L3N0/ ). My account was stolen from me. Please help me and report both XELA's profile and mine as a compromised account.

    @CaptainMcCrabby you submitted this report backwards - you always report the FIRST user you were involved with that being this user. Do NOT submit a new report - we will deal with it all here for now.
    | steamname: Neleno
    | steam3ID: [U:1:365461618]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:0:182730809
    | steamID64: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198325727346
    | customURL: https://steamcommunity.com/id/N3L3N0
    | steamrep: https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198325727346

    You should have reported this user and then referenced the ID like I did here with the one you accused.
    Now it would appear as if someone @N3L3N0 is claiming to be that person - I'll ask them NOT to post again unless they post under THAT account or the Neleno account.
    They can submit a steam support ticket to recover the account and confirm compromised at which they will be required to post FULL screenshots of that ticket here or their account will be noted in this report as clearly involved.
    You have 48hours @N3L3N0 to provide that ON the OTHER ACCOUNT! DO NOT POST on this one again please.
