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 will you do when someone imitates your account?

    Have you ever imagined?
    if someone uses your name and doing scam?
    maybe some have experienced and even become victims
    but some also never imagined
    and maybe some of you can imitate someone

    This post is only for knowing
    what would you do if someone used your data in steam to do scam?
    don't expect those who imitate only 1 ~ 10
    but it can also be up to hundreds
    or maybe more

    Here are some pictures that I experienced :

    I hope I get advice that fits my situation

    Thing is using someone's name isn't a scam.
    You are talking about just impersonation - but for it to be a scam it must be impersonation with clear intent to defraud.
    Those images you show do not prove that one bit.
    Steam/Valve allows anyone to use any name even if it duplicates over another.
    If you have issues with that you should contact Valve directly or issues with harassment you can do that as well with them.
