    Someone who says he is Steam Admin is trying to lock my account, this is his profile https://steamcommunity.com/id/Gentle_Valve_Admin__-

    He keeps changing my Steam profile name and description and it's getting frustrating
    Could someone help or give explanation how this works?

    Also I am sorry if this doesn't belong here, but I don't know any other place anymore where to ask help.

    Yes, I didn't do anything he asked or clicked any of his links. He somehow managed to add me as friend and unblock me multiple times. I changed my password and logged off from every device.
    Thank you for the help.

    It seems like you're logged into a phishing site which he operates, allowing him to do all that except that he can't confirm trades.
    Other than immediately changing your password on Steam, changed it on any Other place where you use the same password (email etc) and check if he created any api keys here https://steamcommunity.com/dev/apikey
    You should revoke any keys you see there
    And de authorize all Other devices

    Feel free to use these two images I provided for evidence along with anything else you got.
    I've already tagged user in the meantime since my images were more than enough to validate they were in fact fake

    Thank you, I probably once logged into one for "item verification". It was about few weeks ago so I think it was from that.

    Sadly I didn't get any chat logs as I quickly unfriended him and blocked him. And I don't prefer to add him again.

    But seriously, thank you all for your help, my heart almost stopped during this.
