    What happened? Description:
    This a guy messaged me that he reported my account for multiple illegal purchases and told me to message a steam "admin" to clear it up. I message the person and we talk for a few moments, and asks me to take screenshots of the messages the first person sent me and a screenshot of my purchase history(I also put a fake username and he couldn't detect it). He then asked me to go onto discord for the final step. I declined and dared him to delete my account. Then I blocked the person.​

    Pretty clear this user was hijacked - they were even community banned by Valve already before even getting to this report.
    Don't report these actions here - report them to Valve instead.

    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
