Scam Report Report Type: [Trade Offer Fraud] Using Trade Offer URL fraud Virtual item type involved: [None] No items Accused profile: 76561198074200838 Victim profile: 76561198056162677 What happened? Description: there are two profiles that are involved in this scam attempted. their profile links will be in this description box. meowzy's steam profile url - https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198074200838/ meowzy has been in my friend list for a couple of years. today he messaged me out of nowhere, telling me that he has "accidentally" reported my account for having duped items. he told me that i have to settle this issue with a "steam admin" if not my account would be banned in 1 hour. he told me to add a steam user named Mysterious (the "steam admin") to confirm that i do not have duped items. i do not have duped items or whatsoever. this whole conversation was pretty sketchy and i decided to find out more about what he was trying to do. i listened to his instructions and i went on to add the "steam admin". after adding Mysterious (the "steam admin") his profile url https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198181550779/ Mysterious sent me a video through steam. the video showed that i had a pending ban report on my account. he then probed me to send my trade offer url to him. after requesting for my trade url to confirm whether i have my items duped or not, he sent another video. the second video was him showing me how to send my trade offer url. he then threatened me that if i didnt send him the url, i might get banned. i think Mysterious and meowzy was the same person, attempting to scam/get my account information. Mysterious was impersonating a steam admin, so i hope Steam Support/SteamRep would be able to do something about this issue. i have also gathered the screenshots of the conversations, their profile url and the video url that they sent to me. i really hope that Steam Support would be able to solve this quickly because im afraid that other steam users would fall for his scam. thank you for reviewing my report, i hope to hear from the Steam Support/SteamRep soon. "pending report ban" on my account - https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd....828/678CD3DB5E6665E2BC691F0530A842A348600401/ attempt to get my trade url by showing me an example - https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd....058/BFE01E93728B757AEF4F6A83A2A6138D53CC4108/ Provide Evidence: the pictures that ive attached are the screenshots of the conversation ive had with the scammers.
