    Somebody told me that they reported me and I needed to talk to a steam admin. I went to talk to this admin, and they said they need money to verify that it is me that owns the account, so that a "pending ban" would go away. At first I was skeptical, but then I saw that they had another clone account of mine. This was very strange to me, because I thought it was just a scammer. I believed it, and gave money. The "admin" is also selling all my items I have in games, or trading them away. Please someone help me figure out what to do here.

    Someone is trying to extort you out of whatever...its a scam. The user that said they "reported you" is likely hijacked. Make sure you've reported all of them to Valve ASAP!

    There is also NO SUCH THING as a Steam Admin... they do not exist.
