    This is NOT the first user you should be reporting - You basically reported the other user that was brought into the scam event. You must make sure from now on you report the FIRST user you were contacted by and who started the scam..you only need to reference any other accounts involved and describe HOW they were involved in the description by including the FULL SR profile block along with details of how they were involved.
    Also include any and all FULL screenshots you have as evidence.
    Please do not resubmit a new report - this one will do for now.

    @SomDood I need the ID64 of the FIRST user you were in contact with and I need it ASAP!
    I also need to know that you've reported BOTH users to Valve and also again - ASAP!

    This is a very common thing from a hijacked account(s) and we need to ensure if that is the case before tagging someone that never had control over their accounts.

    Both users were Community banned - therefore as I figured likely hijacked.
    Any time you see this do not report this here...instead report them to Valve.
    I'm archiving report to prevent additional hardship upon the owners of the account once they regain ownership.
