I am new to the forums and made this account to speak my mind about something that has been nagging me during the last couple of days.
As it says in the title of this thread my Steam Account has been banned. The reason that was given to me was that a transaction I made on my Steam acc through Paypal was disputed for reasons unknown to me and this led to a chargeback to my account. Steam support seems to be unwilling to help me in any sort of way because they supposedly have a "zero-tolerance policy" when "fraud" is concerned even if there is no fraud in play. Strangely enough there is no mention of this practice in the Steam Subscriber Agreement. I searched for similar cases on the Steam forums and there are quite a few that are similar to mine and nearly all of these people didn't get their accounts back. I always thought that Steam/ Valve were okay but this whole account suspension thing has opened my eyes.
My tip to everyone, don't use Paypal on Steam! If there is ever a problem with the transaction your account will get banned and you probably won't get it back. Steam are a bunch of scumbags who don't give a damn about any of us gamers. I know I certainly won't buy anything from them anymore.
I lost an account worth hundreds of euros for a negligible 7 euros, so be warned.
And to all Steam fanboys, please keep your opinions to yourself. You can glorify them as much as you want, but they're still a horrible and apathetic corporation that doesn't care about any of its customers. /endofrant
If you made it this far down the post I thank you for your attention and wish you a good day.
