CollaideTbh why are you not more careful when you have an inventory as expensive as that? I'd never lend out my account except if I was sitting right next to them.

I dunno about the relationship between afterglow and jondy but id certainly know some friends who id trust with my 20k

i think it can be pretty easily proved by looking at ips or location data, if i remember correctly steam does look at that if you claim a hijack or that your account was being used by someone else.

I mean not much anyone can do. Sharing accounts violates the steam TOS so i doubt they will be sympathetic about this.

because the guy that got him banned is a world class dick. It doesn't matter if you are friends, if they waste your 20k you probably shouldn't be friends with them anymore
if you don't get the account back make him pay
E:nvm it doesn't matter afterglow is a rich white boy and a pussy bitch

retrogradei think it can be pretty easily proved by looking at ips or location data, if i remember correctly steam does look at that if you claim a hijack or that your account was being used by someone else.

What if a cheater:
Uses a VPN
Leaves his home to go and cheat

I highly doubt that this guy is losing his vac. It will also be hard for him to claim a hijack since steam already has so many security precautions thst it's practically impossible for more than one person to use an account unless they are deliberately account sharing.

Here Afterglow, this may help

If you contact VALVe support, even though it may take a while, if you give explicit information about how the VAC occurred there is a small chance of this ban to be lifted. It has happened to people in the past who have used programs similar to razer synapse, but from a non-trustworthy company, to get VACed and have said VAC lifted if enough information is given. Steam VAC support has access to the reason the VAC was occurred, how the program was installed (injected into the game, aka hacks; or other reasons), and the ips that have logged onto the account (not to shure about that one, but the first two im positive.) Since there where no hacks on you account as you claim, and it was merely the same phone number, then the account should be entitled to some form of compensation, since the VAC rule is if your account is hijacked, the account is banned, and not the person. This is to prevent the, "someone else was on my account" excuse. Its your account, your responsibility. But since the ban was triggered not through your account, but the account with the same number as yours, it may have a chance. Ive seen people get unVACed in the past, and while it is rare, the unbans have been for reasons much more controversial than this. Providing any and all information is necessary, while maintaining a format that is professional and polite (hope you passed sophomore English lol).

An automatic response usually is sent back saying how VACed accounts are unrecoverable, but if you request a person to look into the event backed up with your grounds of doing so, someone might manually take a look at it. Now, whether they decide to unban you or not is at the mercy of whomever is reviewing the ban. Trust me, i have done this myself before, and they have looked into it.

I would act quickly though, since the longer you are VACed, the lesser your chance of review is.
Good luck with your VAC, and hopefully this was to some assistance.

Eh, obviously hindsight is 20/20. He would not have hacked had he known all my accounts linked via the steam mobile app would get banned too. I got the steam mobile app literally as soon as it came out. I'm like 99% sure there was no policy on chain banning like this... Definitely would've noticed it. They've since updated their ToS and I just didn't know about it. Jondy didn't either. O well, money is just paper. Not the end of the world.

edit: thanks jduff for the info

wonderlandits from being linked to the same phone number as an alt that got vacced by someone else in cs ><

VAC bans are taking out innocent people via phone sharing but notorious tf2/csgo hackers get away with all kinds of shit. Why is VAC so fucking retarded?

That imo you shouldn't end a friendship just because he did something stupid where neither you nor he expected to make you lose 20k.
Its very unfortunate, but I doubt he wanted to waste his 20k so it stays an accident after all.

The chain banning has been a thing for quite some time. In fact it was a major point of discussing during the april vac wave that affected lmaobox. Sucks

I mean, it was pretty obvious what the intent behind the "premium matchmaking" on CSGO was. There was a reason they grouped people who had linked a phone number together: the phone number is a valuable anti-cheat resource.
