1. There is no such thing as a "pending" ban or Steam admin. Anyone threatening your account is a scammer trying to scare you. Read more.

    The Story:
    Person 1 adds me to their friend list, after 1 week they tell me :
    1:- im sorry , please forgive me , but i falsely reported you for account scam
    1:- please add and talk to the Steam Admin "person 2" so you dont get banned
    I add "person 2" and he ask me
    2:- Hello , what can i help you whit ?
    me: copy+paste my conversation whit "person 1"
    person 2 sends my a GIF image of my account whit the banned
    2:- i see , you know you cant prove you didn't scam "person 1" right ?
    At this time i suspected he was not a real admin
    2:- i need you to show me your steam trade link
    person 2 sends my a GIF image of how to share a steam trade link
    What dose this have to do whit my ban status ? idk, my steam trade link is clearly visible to any friend, why dose the admin need it ?
    If he can see "person 1" scam report, than he can see my report to right ? I proceed to report "person 1" for scam
    me:- "person 2" please check my steam report, i reported a player in Ironsite for hacking
    A lie by me.
    "person 1" quickly removes me from friend list (why? and how did he know?)
    "person 2' proceed to wright in a new fancy font
    2:- please give me the information i asked
    2:- i dont have time for your s✿✿✿
    Now i was sure he was not an admin, so i reported him too, and blocked all communication.
    I tried to copy the conversation, but i was in game and it was lost.
    I unblocked "person 2" and tried to friend add him so i can see the chat again, but he blocked all communications whit me. (why? dose he not want to help the steam player (me) ?)
    Search google: steam admins , find this site , post this thread.

    Questions:
    1)Can i still post the steam account of "person 1" and "person 2" even if i have no proof ? (since i cant see my conversation whit the two)
    2)Can i see my conversation whit "person 2" if we are friends no more ? how ?
    3)Or, is it a way too see my "submit steam account report for scam" request ?
    4)Steam Admins dont exist ? Is it true that a valve employee has the "Valve employee" Steam Badge ? never saw one

    This is a typical thing happening now by usually a hijacked account(s).
    Report them to Valve so they can handle it.

    We don't review getfriendmessage logs alone, must have steam chat screenshots.

    If you are no longer friends and you've closed the chat is it gone.
    There is NO such thing as a steam admin.
    So just report them to Valve and let them deal with the situation.

    Did you read what I said? We do not review get friend message logs and the link I gave you explains that and why.
    Also this is not where you submit reports.
    Report the user(s) to Valve and let them handle it.
    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.
    Thanks!

    You can't delete anything - just leave it be.
    Report them to Valve as I said and leave it at that.
    Thanks!
