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.

    @Mr.Nils All I see are embedded images in your chat - I see NO URL or address that the user gave you.
    You also didn't provide a FULL screen of the users profile WHILE friends which is essential to helping verify identity.
    Lucky I was able to get one item off the users profile which helps confirm your screenshot - without this this report would be majorly lacking.
    Steam chats default now with embedded images not text so change that setting when you can.
    I'll review again shortly

    Yeah I apologize for bad evidence. I don't often report people on steam rep so I'm often unsure of what to do. Sadly I can't get any more info. He blocked and unfriended me the second I found him out so. Either way I hope you can get him banned. Also here's the profile of the person he was impersonating: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198021055079/

    objective isn't to ban someone its just a warning for others - in the meantime take my advice and remove the embedded images in steam chat so it shows URL's instead.
