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: 76561198392312382

    Victim profile: 76561198084247194

    What happened? Description:
    I had this person as a friend for a while I think, then suddenly today they decided to say 'hi' and message me. I was doing something else but they were persistent so I asked them what they want and told me they accidentally reported me for duping items. They also sent ma a video showing their friend recieving a ban due to this report. Afterwards, they told me to add the 2nd accused as a friend and to tell them about the situation:

    2nd accused info block:
    | steamname: Ashneel
    | steam3ID: [U:1:311837609]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:1:155918804
    | steamID64: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198272103337
    | customURL: https://steamcommunity.com/id/7894649874649874168454967845689
    | steamrep: https://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198272103337

    I did and I tried to waste their time by asking questions. They told me they had to verify the items to make sure they were not duped and wanted me to trade my items to a link they sent me. Oh, they deleted that account lol. Guess they knew what was up.​

    You don't think its strange that your friend you've known for a while would do this? Do you have any other ways to contact them outside of steam AND have you reported both accounts to steam yet?

    Ah, like they were just in my friends list sorry, not like I spoke to them that much or anything before. I'm not sure when I added them... is there a way to check? Either way, I just meant they were in my friends list for a while and they randomly decided to message me yesterday.

    I do not have any other way to contact them outside of steam, and I'll report both of them now.

    Well you could re-add them or talk to them again see if anything changed after a day or so.
    Either way I'll wait a day at least to see if anything changes with the accounts status.
