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: [Rep Fraud] Impersonation with intent to defraud
    Virtual item type involved: [TF2] Team Fortress 2 Items

    Accused profile: 76561198355755375

    Victim profile: 76561198060033018

    What happened? Description:
    Guy added me randomly and told me he "accidentally" reported my stuff as duped. I acted stupid and he gave me a link to a "Steam admin" to make sure they aren't duped. I didn't go through with adding the "admin" but I've seen this happen a lot before.​

    Who was the other user they mentioned? You left them out.
    Full SR profile block too! ASAP!
    Also in the future make sure you provide a FULL screenshot of the users profile WHILE friends - it helps verify identity.
    You failed to do this so you will have to follow the next set of instructions before we are able to do anything with this user reported.

    Need to verify this and you can do that with a screenshot of your friend/user activity thru a web browser - when you take this and it shows you adding the user hover your mouse pointer over the users name so it shows the popup of the profile. Make sure you open this in a web browser before doing anything rather than steam client. Take the screenshot and make sure it's Full Screen, not edited or cropped in any way! Upload HERE…NOT imgur, NOT gyazo or any other 3rd party hosting site!

    Please review this screenshot guide should you need assistance:

    I uploaded it twice because you can't see my name in the one that shows the mouseover, just incase you wanted to see it. Unfortunately, I cannot find the profile he linked to because I already closed the chat window. If I had known he was actually impersonating a steamrep admin at the time, I would have got some screenshots or something. I had visited the other guys profile on steam but not on a browser or anything. Is there any way for me to get back to it?

    Thanks, will review again soon - nothing else needed at this time and there is no need to post anything more.
    Feel free to review what you have provided and take the time to see what things you can do to prevent running into users like this in the future.
