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.

    @Davka You always report the FIRST user you were contacted by -- not the 2nd then reference another.
    How do you know the account is hijacked? Have you reported them to Valve yet?

    Yo I know hes account was ok just a month ago then he just like "i accidentally reported you into the steam admin for having dupe items instead of someone else im so sorry :(".
    I actually haven't reported them yet, thought I will report them to steamrep first.

    Always report them to Valve - now if you know they are hijacked then reporting them here causes additional issues trying to resolve a tag here AFTER they recover the account.
    Now if you know the user and can contact them outside of steam do that and have them submit a steam support ticket.
    I've already addressed the accused account - I won't touch the other just yet or at all depending on what I see but make sure you've reported BOTH to Valve asap! They will know if it was hijacked or not and lock it down.

    Also keep in mind we do not review hijacking reports but I'm treating this as a scam attempt since you really don't know the user was hijacked or not.
