    I'm hoping someone on this forum has contacts to steam to let them know at least.

    there have been dozen cases of scammers finding victims from me from steam community market, I did some research and it's still possible to use market as tool to find victims.

    this has been the case for a long time but it got onto steam's radar a few months ago and they are not using hashes on market anymore and changed images a bit, which makes it harder to reverse search. HARDER, not impossible. scammers found a solution to that already (asked my friends who study CS and they confirmed that it's not that hard to run similarity match on images)

    It's user's responsibility not to get scammed but surely steam can do something about it, only way to take down scamming with avatars is to remove avatars from steam market, there's no point in having them there anyway!

    You have information pertaining to an issue with Steam/Valve you need to address it with them thru their contact us method.
    Would prob be wise to do so on your original account as well vs this new throwaway alternate account.
