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: 76561198151097903

    Victim profile: 76561198143252042

    What happened? Description:
    The user tried to scam me with the item verification method, he used a total of 3 accounts while doing this scam attempt, they are the following: https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198151097903 , https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198193394842 , https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198336688158

    Steam account nr1 was the one telling me that he reported me, account nr2 was the fake steam admin and the 3rd is the account that he sent me a tradeoffer from

    I am using a steam chat skin and using the dev mode on steam so if there is any more info or confirmation needed then I am more than ok with giving an admin access to my pc through teamviewer to verify the chat logs and trade history.​

    How long have you known the accused?
    This isn't item verification but more like an extortion scam by a possible hijacked account.
    We don't know that for sure but again how long have you known the account? Also have you reported ALL 3 to Valve yet? If not do so right now.

    He added me a while back, I can't remember exactly when he but I don't think it was too recent since I give people that add me randomly nicknames so he's been probably for more than 1-2 years in my friend list

    Don't you think its a bit odd of them to do this after so long all of a sudden?
    Do you have any other ways to contact them outside of steam?

    Reported all 3 to Valve yet?

    To be honest I have no idea who that guy was, I added steam friends left and right back in the day and I also accepted every friend request that I have ever gotten. I'll make sure to report them to steam now.
