GetHuman4340539's Recover Account issue with Steam Software from February 2020

Help with my Steam Software issue
The issue in GetHuman4340539's own words
my friend accidentally reported my steam account for illegal purchases, he says he tried telling the steam admin it was a mistake but for some reason the admin did not listen. i have been trying to show the admin my purchases with Paypal show they're legitimate but i have not gotten a response other then "hello sir?". so right now my account is locked for for something i have not done and even when i show proof of my innocence nothing is being done.

GetHuman4340539 did not yet indicate what Steam Software should do to make this right.

How GetHuman4340539 fixed the problem
The "steam admin" was just someone posing as an admin, I got tricked into giving my account away. My friend's account seems to have suffered the same fate, being turned into a puppet for the scammer to trick more victims. What I recommend is getting in contact with steam support and giving all the information you have to prove your account was stolen.
