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: [Money] Steam Wallet fraud
    Virtual item type involved: [None] No items

    Accused profile: 76561198264756003

    Victim profile: 76561198427163302

    What happened? Description:
    Someone on Discord sent me a message, asking if my Steam profile (Apologista) was actually mine.
    He then asked me to contact someone else, called Pancake, to help me with the issue.
    Well, this is the easiest scam to identify at this point, I never fell for it, and I hope people don't do the same too, I did talk with him for a while but avoided doing stuff that he wanted me to do.

    Well, this is my first report to steamrep, I don't know if its correct, but, if anythings wrong, please tell me.

    That's the Discord chat images, well, as you can see, is the type of scam that people would usually do on Steam, of course.

    Hello steam-user! How may i help you?
    What can I do for you? Do you need one of my services?

    [11:24]
    Apologista:
    Someone's saying that he accidentally reported me for illegal purchases.
    And then wants me to talk with you.

    [11:25]
    ★UP |Pancake:
    Good day to you could you please give me the full details about this accident like a screenshot of the conversation between that user.

    [11:25]
    Apologista:
    I can't send it for privacy reasons and because I can't screenshot.

    [11:26]
    ★UP |Pancake:
    To make a screenshot, press PrtSc next to the F12 key and go to this chat and press Ctrl-v.

    [11:26]
    Apologista:
    I know how to take a screenshot.
    But my keyboard doesn't let me.

    ★UP |Pancake:
    Alright, kindly hold on a minute while i'm reviewing the report filed on your steam account.

    [11:28]
    Apologista:
    What are you?

    [11:28]
    ★UP |Pancake:
    I have noticed that you have a pending ban concerning multiple scam reports and accused of having duplicated items which may lead to account deletion if not proven innocent.

    [11:28]
    Apologista:
    I mean, how can you review my report file even tho you're not a Valve Employee.
    Valve employees have a badge on their profile, you don't have one.
    It would look like this.

    ★UP |Pancake:
    Why would I show you the UI on steam support? there is possibility that you will copy the page and sorry i can't risk my job if you feel unsafe we can cancel this and proceed on account deletion.

    [11:29]
    Apologista:
    I'm not asking to see your UI, I'm asking you to answer my question about the "Valve Employee" badge.
    That somehow, you don't have it.

    [11:30]
    ★UP |Pancake:
    So would you like to make an appeal to clear these reports?

    [11:30]
    Apologista:
    One second, please.

    Unfortunately, SteamRep does not accept reports dealing with hijacking/phishing/hacking -Due to current Investigative Policy
    http://forums.steamrep.com/threads/investigative-policy.140101/

    This includes anything to do with API key requests, wrong or misspelled URL's and sites requesting logins of any type in attempts to steal your credentials.
    These are phishing/hijacking attempts and are not to be reported to SteamRep!

    You can report the user to Valve instead
    In order to do that, you have to:
    1. Visit the accuseds profile
    2. Click MORE drop-down located at the top right of the page
    3. Choose REPORT VIOLATION
    4. Select the violation, then describe it and provide the evidence
    5. Click SUBMIT REPORT
