    Scam Report

    Report Type: [Rep Fraud] Impersonation with intent to defraud
    Virtual item type involved: [None] No items

    Accused profile: 76561198031292132

    Victim profile: 76561197998384498

    What happened? Description:
    A person who has been on my friend list for a long time messaged me claiming that I needed to add a person (who appears to be trying to pretend to be a Valve employee) or get banned.​

    Provide Evidence:
    I'm not sure how this type of scam is meant to work - I guess I'm supposed to believe the person it wants you to add is actually a Valve employee.

    This seems to be a discussion of same type of scam:
    https://steamcommunity.com/discussions/forum/1/1779388024851144169/

    This is the person it wanted me to add:
    https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198213976493
    | steamname: Ms.Michaela V A L V E
    | steam3ID: [U:1:253710765]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:1:126855382
    | steamID64: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198213976493
    | customURL: https://steamcommunity.com/id/Mic-Assistance
    | steamrep: https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198213976493

    I appreciate that there is little proof of wrong doing here - but I want people to be aware of this activity, and that these 2 accounts are involved in it.

    Note: I have this user labeled with nickname 'buying all eternal rewards' which is why that name appears in the chat log rather than Scotch (you can see this in the screenshot of Scotch's profile I've attached.)

    Thanks!​

    @GovCon Do you have other means of contacting this friend? If so do that and advise them of what is happening.. maybe the account is compromised.
    Please advise either way.
