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: 76561198070254211

    Victim profile: 76561198388860294

    What happened? Description:
    This person is trying to scam me via impersonating one of the staff members of VALVE. The person in question first, on a different account, told me that he was very sorry for reporting me for having duplicated items and that my account was under surveillance. He also told me that i had to contact one of the staff members of VALVE and tell them that I'm innocent. Then, he redirected me to the other account (The impersonator) which is probably also him and then tried to scam me by telling that i should give him my items to "verify".​

    Provide Evidence:
    This person (Acolyte) is trying to scam and take my tf2 items by impersonating one of the members of the staff team of Valve.

    First of all, one of his parterns told me that he was very sorry for reporting me becouse I had duplicated items and that I should contact a staff member of Valve.

    Then he redirected me to this staff impersonator (Acolyte), here's the link to his profile and original staff member if needed: https://steamcommunity.com/id/SteamAsisstanceCommunity785
    https://gyazo.com/078b0e9a06e10ab76...tA3wHNmLqda3ubA9vSQSR5XAYgBqfFvBj2pvrjLS60fMg

    After I added him on Steam, the impersonator told me that I should give him the items to "verify" or "take the virus out" becouse they were duped.

    Quote: "All of your Strange and the Taunt's items.
    May you please send the reported Item(s) here on our program for the verification process:
    Mr.Timín I really hope that you are innocent here so I can remove the pending ban in your account.
    Dont forget to confirm it on your phone so our program will notified the involved items.
    Just tell me if you are done so I will check it right now.
    Don't worry Mr.Timín we will give you back after checking your tf2 stuff."

    Here's his partner profile link if needed too: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198306758576/

    I can provide screenshots of the conversation if needed.​

    @Kr3di You don't report this user - you report the FIRST user you were involved with or who started the scam...doing so like this backwards makes it hard to review.
    Confirm this was the user that started it..

    If confirmed I need the chat logs showing you talking to them as well asap!
    Also keep in mind this user you accused is already community banned by Valve...there isn't a thing more we can do to them here that would effect their status as essentially they are deleted from Steam.
