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

    Virtual item type involved: [None] No items

    Accused profile: 76561198799234521

    Victim profile: 76561198280104618

    What happened? Description:
    The accused contacted me, claiming that I had a pending ban report and that Steam admin would permanently ban me if I didn't do something to prove myself. He also sent a video showing the impending ban being put in place. I have heard of this scam before, and refused to play along. Please deal with this individual as soon as possible.​

    Provide Evidence:
    I have included a snap of the chat that went on between me in the accused. Also, I don't know how long this link will be viable, but here's a link to the video of supposed ban being put in place. https://steamusercontent-a.akamaihd...702/6037091BCFB46D1C164BB0FD8D082B05FE3BC1F0/

    Did you have any more of the chat? Also please do FULL screenshots not cropped chat boxes next time.
    Also want a FULL screen of the users profile WHILE friends..helps verify identity. Lucky I was able to determine this another way but that is rare.

    Sorry, that's all I have. When I realized that I was being reeled in for a scam, my focus was on filing a report so as to help prevent other people from getting scammed. And I never friended this person.

    It's enough but there may have been another account involved but who knows at this point.
    Slow down get all evidence before rushing to make a report.. you can report to Valve at any point.
