    Scam Report

    Report Type: [Other] Any other fraudulent behavior
    Virtual item type involved: [CSGO] Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Items

    Accused profile: 76561198818905632

    Victim profile: 76561198091640630

    What happened? Description:
    Impersonating this account: https://steamcommunity.com/id/gergelyszabo

    Additionally impersonating a Valve employee using the discord account (Christen Coomer
    #2894) with intention to scam.

    He pretends to be a scam victim of someone impersonating me and has mistakenly reported me for scamming.

    He then pretends that Valve Employee Christen (https://steamcommunity.com/id/christen) is solving the matter and asks me to add him on the phony discord to resolve the 'report'. You most likely have access to the chat logs and if not, the imgur screenshots contain our full chat on both steam and discord.

    Unfortunately, SteamRep does not accept reports dealing with hijacking/phishing/hacking -Due to current Investigative Policy
    http://forums.steamrep.com/threads/investigative-policy.140101/

    This includes anything to do with API key requests, wrong or misspelled URL's and sites requesting logins of any type in attempts to steal your credentials.
    These are phishing/hijacking attempts and are not to be reported to SteamRep!

    You can report the user to Valve instead
    In order to do that, you have to:
    1. Visit the accuseds profile
    2. Click MORE drop-down located at the top right of the page
    3. Choose REPORT VIOLATION
    4. Select the violation, then describe it and provide the evidence
    5. Click SUBMIT REPORT

    Click here to view an animated gif that shows how to report a violation.

    99.999% of these are always done by hijacked accounts - so report them to Valve not here, let them handle it.
    Also report the other user to Discord so they can address that.
