The issue in GetHuman-bpeachey's own words
Test and report a cheat then I get vac banned after reporting it ... So I got vac banned yesterday but please hear me out.I got banned for what suspect was using a cheat called maverick, however i had only used this cheat in a game hosted by my friend to test if it worked and once i realised it did i reported it to battleeye using their website so i cant show this to my knowledge but i reported it here https:***reported it to vac https:***p**e*fFMW*So this is what i think got me banned **. my friend informing me of a free cheat for GTA * and CSGO**. I checked to see if the cheat functioned on CSGO in a match hosted by my friend **. i confirmed it worked after a handfull of games on various maps to see if it only worked on one map etc**. i then reported it to battle-eye and VAC (you) **. about a week or two passed **. i get on yesterday to the message that i have been VAC banned**Yesterday I submitted a support ticked to receive a automated response to which I replied and got nothing back **So what i am asking is that:*I please be unbanned as i did not cheat on any official servers and I reported the cheat that my friend discovered (if you need proof i have played this game extensively look at my hours and purchase date) *If you cannot unban me which i hope you can that you provide me with information on the ban **If you need or want to ask me any more questions feel free to contact me via steam **Yours sinceerly Bradley
I never cheated on a public server only a hosted game by my friends against my friends
Removing the VAC ban
I’ve spent ***** hours on counter strike have numerous in game trophies have spent a few hundred dollars on game items and once I clarified the cheat worked I deleted it and reported jt to steam and battle eye *Furthermore I know other people who have cheated on public servers against regular players and never been banned
Sending a ticket to steam support *Calling the number this site provided however it was a incomplete number *Researching similar circumstances
I have an issue with Steam Software too
