Exclamation Steam is telling me I'm a Cyber Cafe owner and put tons of games on my account.

I did not sign up for this. When I log in I'm greeted with the Cyber Cafe Own Agreement and it prompts me to press "I AGREE". I chose to simply close the window, but the games are still on my account and Steam signs me off Steam Community when I try to send messages. Who do I contact to fix this mistake? I don't want to be banned for being accused of taking advantage of this error or something.

Support at the top of every page, there's no phone or live-chat options. Create a support account and make sure to give as much detail as possible.

Yeah, I got the same exact thing. I am pretty mad. http://i.imgur.com/OXc4T.jpg .. it deleted my entire TF2 backpack .. hopefully they will recover my items. I got the same popup when singing in and just clicked agree because it said "STEAM SUBSCRIBER AGREEMENT", and now my account is a Steam Cybercafe account. Oh well, at least Steam Support is fast on these issues usually.

Question: was anyone else using Steam Beta?

Start TF2. It will all be deleted and your items replaced by "Store Promotion" items, such as ones you get from doing achievements. (or at least it did for me)

This is pretty annoying too, it sets me as appear offline every few minutes. Weirdest bug I've ever seen.

Now that we know it's happening to more than just me or yourself, I'm sure Valve won't go around banning people for a mistake on their part. They might if it was an isolated incident, though that's not to say they would never restore said account.
