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: [Other] Any other fraudulent behavior
    Virtual item type involved: [None] No items

    Accused profile: 76561198281386897

    Victim profile: 76561198142013958

    What happened? Description:
    Randomly added me on Steam and said he accidentally reported me for duped items. I proceeded to attempt to call him out subtly ( probably not ) but he continued anyway with the full set of scam messages.​

    Provide Evidence:

    I hope this is enough evidence. This must've been the 4th or 5th time I've seen that same video of the same 'friend' being 'banned'. I'm pretty sure others may have been presented with the same video. As you can see in these chat box screenshots he attempted that infamous and ridiculously common scam. After attempting to call him out the first few times I gave up and copy-pasted from a notepad file a list of accounts of people who previously tried to scam me with various other methods. Not too long after that he unfriended me, as expected.

    Also, here's a short gif of me going to his profile from the chat box to prove this is the correct profile.

    And if anything a private profile is already a red flag, I guess?

    Do contact me if I need to add more evidence, thanks.​

    I didn't want to put up with him so I did not get the supposed other user, but this specific video is very commonly used in this type of scam. This specific video of the same 'user'.

    I know this because this is like the 4th or 5th person I've met using this same tactic.

    P.S. What is an ID64 or SR profile block?

    Oh, I did not bother to continue the conversation so he did not link anybody else's profile. But I'm pretty sure this should be enough evidence, right?
