    What happened? Description:
    An incident had occurred 7/15/2018 where my account was hijacked BUT it was recovered thanks to steam officials. I'm here to post everything what happened in hopes of flushing out this user. The user held my entire account for ransom and in the end locked it and changed everything but failed to remove my mobile auth, which gave me all my power. your evidence box that you have provided shall contain every single bit that happened.​

    Provide Evidence:
    This account was hijacked by this user : | steamname: Brooks Basa™
    | steam3ID: [U:1:363923085]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:1:181961542
    | steamID64: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198324188813
    | customURL: https://steamcommunity.com/id/boonkgeng12

    This is the account he used to talk with me and send the trade. :
    | steamname: Andrew Tradeit.gg
    | steam3ID: [U:1:335852276]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:0:167926138
    | steamID64: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198296118004
    | customURL: https://steamcommunity.com/id/BeppeFrasscas
    | steamrep: https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198296118004
    He had changed my password, email, and removed my mobile auth. However, I had recovered my auth before he could do anything which is how I was able to come back to talk here now.
    This Imgur link contains every bit of information possible : https://imgur.com/a/yHm7lDm
    I created this album, in attempts to make things easier snce there is 20+ images. However I can attach the images if needed.
    This hijacker may also use a paypal to provide proof of ownership over this account. We have conducted buisness using paypal in the past. And this user may use that account that I used, to falsely provide ownership of this account. Which is why I used an alternate method to prove my ownership over my account.
    Among the images contained in the album linked above, I sent the trade offer link with the exact trade number 3254396790. He confirms that is indeed the trade, which confirms that he is the account owner trying to hijack mine.
    During this incident, I was in a discord video call, so that this steam user : https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198044022338
    Who had witnessed this entire incident occur. If any further questions are needed. You may ask them any questions. He helped me gain my control again by linking me to your help pages. I myself will not be able to talk via steam since the hijacker managed to lock it before departing.
    The Paypal history was nothing big. it was a Paypal to Steam transaction. but I had blindly given him my steam guard code at that time, and my account name.
    Please help as quick as possible. I'm looking forward to any feedback you can provide.
    I have attached a file, (Chat_With_Brooks_Basa.JPG) provided by the witness of this incident who had a previous run in with the same user.​
