How to BAN a scam site from Steam!
Hey everyone, today I wanted to present you a new way to get scam links removed from Steam!

How it works: I am always looking for scam links on Steam forums, groups, chats and comment sections to pass them along to a Steam community moderator so he can get them removed from Steam :maglike:


How YOU can get scam links banned: I created a section on our Steam group chat of this group where you can post all the scam links you find on Steam.

At least once a day I will open the chat and pass along all the scam links to the Steam community moderator so he can get them banned!
:maglike:

Join our group chat here and post all the scam links you find in the "report scam links here" channel: https://s.team/chat/EFxrUGj0


Together we will be able to remove hundreds or even thousands of scam links over time and turn Steam into a better place.


Thanks for your support and I wish you an awesome day!

However, if you have evidence - i think you do - please use the forum.

Please don't go around naming & shaming Medeiros. I had to remove your post for lack of evidence. Besides, with a custom url that a scammer can change at any time, you're not gonna get far warning ppl.

I'm afraid that's gonna be mighty difficult ♫Mzq♫♥♛ . Steam won't re-emburse and that amount of money is barely the fee of a lawyer but doesn't cover costs of a trial. IF any-one could find the person behind the scam. If you have a good insurance they might re-emburse the loss.
Even if insurance company gets more complaints from their customers being scammed from the same account, it's very difficult to impossible to find a person behind the scam.

We can help you file a report to Steam Support who then can ban the account but that's about all we can do on this forum.

Hi Archibald. Gamers can't ban some-one or else malicious traders wold ban all honest traders. Steam can issue a ban if they get enough valid reports. Valid reports means reports from victims only. You can report them under the dropdown menu at the right top of their profile (3 dots next to add friend and the profile prizes).
There's no use in asking your friends to report the scammer as they can’t provide any new information…. unless they were victim too.

Mind you, scamming is most often regarded as a “legally binding trade” as the victim usually (is pushed to) ignored(/ignoring) warning signs. You won’t get your items back although with proper insurance and high enough value, your insurance company might reimburse the loss.
