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: 76561198150510108

    Victim profile: 76561198044735930

    What happened? Description:
    Attempted to scam items of high value from me using accounts that impersonated steamrep admins. Uses a second profile to hide unusuals in case the added account gets trade banned.​

    Provide Evidence:
    Added me to discuss trading my unusuals for pure/items. Told me to look through his profile's inventory through this link (http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198050745352/inventory/) which links to this profile (http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198050745352). Obviously different profiles to prevent losing an incredible amount of in-game wealth.

    Wanted me to 'hire' steamrep admins with the following steam community links to different profiles: http://steamcommunity.com/id/BBigBangGamers/ (links to http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198135723559), http://steamcommunity.com/id/TRD69/ (links to http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198091229159), http://steamcommunity.com/id/WestVillage/ (links to http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198012246890)

    The second two seem to be the actual links to admins but the first one (BBigBangGamers) was curiously running 'steamrep' item checker/verificator:
