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: 76561198154242887

    Victim profile: 76561197970799456

    What happened? Description:
    Miracle impersonated a Steam Admin and attempted to get me to submit all my unusual and strange items to him for "verification" via a bot trade. The person that connected me to him was a new friend, Freakshow, who was already banned for the item dupe scam:
    | steamname: Freakshow
    | steam3ID: [U:1:852398137]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:1:426199068
    | steamID64: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198812663865
    | customURL: https://steamcommunity.com/id/tf2freak
    | steamrep: https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198812663865

    Miracle created a mini videos showing some of my public info and stated that he would delete me unless I complied. I got required screenshots, reported them to Steam and then let them know that I was on to their scam. They unfriended me after that... no items lost.


    Thanks,
    Ching

    p.s. my original post was trying to follow forum rules by reporting person who first contacted me. Thanks again!​

    @Ching Chow You only report the FIRST user you were involved with - not others. You already referenced the other involved.
    You did the right thing earlier - but this report was not needed I had not addressed the other user yet otherwise it was on my list.
    Please make sure from now on you just avoid tagged users completely to start with to avoid this situation entirely.
    Nothing more needed at this time - no need to post again. thanks
