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.

What happens if someone fake reports me and is this screenshot real ?

    I've removed that profile link - you are not tagged here.
    Fake screenshot for sure yes - if someone reports you well the report has to run its course and we investigate it like all the others but you currently have no report against you at this time.
    This looked like a scare tactic could be doing so for various reasons.
    If you feel the user is trying to scam you, you can submit a report.

    That user is already tagged/banned here also.. best to avoid them at this point.

    I'd like to point out we have procedures for exactly this scenario. From the pinned thread in the Report a Scam section, if it happens to you:
