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: 76561198124076347

    Victim profile: 76561198134437245

    What happened? Description:
    Basically, I got notified by French Toast, an old friend of mine that I haven't remembered until today (https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198140957341/) and he claims that I got wrongfully reported for duplication and I must talk to this Steam Representative. He also claims that if I did not add him, I would be permanently be banned from Steam. So I did add him, and he says that I got reported for taunt duplication (which I never did) and I duplicated all taunts (which is impossible). We continued the talk in a discord (which a steam representative won't do) and he linked me to a trade where I gotta trade with another account. (https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198869600992) Then I just realized that the whole thing is a sham and called them out on it. Then we returned to steam and talk this out, snowls keeps saying that I have to send all of my taunt to the 'program' or else I risk loosing my account. I didn't and begin capturing evidence. They both ended up unfriending me as a result.​

    Start of the conversation, French toast notifies me that i've been falsely reported

    This is where Snowls proceeds to link to an steam trade room where he said that i have to put my taunts in there and trade in so they can 'inspect' them.​

    S n o w l s:
    Hello steam-user! State your reason why did you add me.

    [7:57 PM]
    yoohoo:
    so i got falsely reported by french toast and he messaged me by saying that i gotta add you to deal with the issue
    i'm currently in contact with him

    [7:57 PM]
    S n o w l s:
    Let me check your account status first if you have a pending ban report.

    [7:57 PM]
    yoohoo:
    alright

    [7:59 PM]
    S n o w l s:
    I have noticed that you have a pending ban report issued on your account, random user(s) reported you for having duplicated items

    [7:59 PM]
    yoohoo:
    yes and after that he messaged me saying that he have reported me and its an mistake
    i can give you screenshots of it

    [8:00 PM]
    S n o w l s:
    You need to prove your guilt here that you are innocent and you dont own any duplicated items.

    [8:00 PM]
    yoohoo:
    ive claim i dont own any duplicated items sir
    claimed*
    https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd....068/76AE8A9F07D8D34997106EA155C3AAEAC24DCF2E/

    this is my message history with him

    [8:01 PM]
    S n o w l s:
    Its good to hear but to prove your self that you dont own any of it, you need to appeal on the program that can detect any duplicated items, is that clear?

    [8:02 PM]
    yoohoo:
    where do i appeal myself on the program

    [8:18 PM]
    S n o w l s:
    May you please send the reported item(s) here on our program for the process: https://steamcommunity.com/tradeoffer/new/?partner=909335264&token=siZKq96u The Program: System Database will clarify if your items are in good condition. The process of clarifying takes 2-3 minutes and don't forget to confirm on your phone so I can check it right away.
    Is there any accusation?
    https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd....058/5898F7674DD7BC832AF37927A1EA48AD75D67C5F/

    i accidently submitted it, i should continue here.

    This is the link that he sent.

    This is where he asked to continue the conversation in steam, because i called their bullcrap and said that no steam representatives would do the job in a 3rd party site.
    and this is where i stalled and started screenshots. The link in this photo is me trading the same account. This is the link in the discord (bookmarks are censored)
    I hope that clears things off, since how i'm clumsy enough to accidentally press submit lol.
    and i also have the screenshots of the discord conversation and both of their steam direct messages history if you guys need.

    @Wazam You don't report this user - you report the user you were FIRST incontact with - that is who started the scam or the scam event!
    | steamname: French Toast
    | steam3ID: [U:1:180691613]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:1:90345806
    | steamID64: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198140957341

    | steamrep: https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198140957341

    This user started it and who you should have reported - you basically reported things backwards and makes it difficult to review.
    I need the steam trade URL the fake admin gave you pasted here asap! Also do NOT edit screenshots...any screenshot you've edited is completely unacceptable.

    Also do you have any other means of contacting the French Toast user outside of that steam account? It is possible your friend was compromised or hijacked - they are still responsible for their account so it was still clearly involved.

    thanks for responding, i'd like to let you know a few things,

    i'm unable to send you the link because it has been expired (https://steamcommunity.com/tradeoffer/new/?partner=909335264&token=siZKq96u)
    and my apologies for doing the report backwards.
    i dont know the time me and french toast became friends (probably earlier in december or this month or ages ago) but i do believe he may be hijacked, since how he has to link to another account to make the process look more legit
    and my another apologies for editing the photos, i dont want most of my friends dms and privacy including mine out on the public so

    If your friend was hijacked or not isn't the issue here - the account was involved. The owner of said account is responsible for the account at all times..that is Valve's stance that is ours.
    As for editing..yes don't do that - read our screenshot guide/requirements link and it will show you how to do screenshots and still omit private data.
    Once you edit it - how do we know you didn't edit something else that makes the evidence reflect one way vs another.
    If you think your friend was compromised and you can contact them another way then do so within next 24hours and post back...otherwise report will be concluded.
