    Okay, my account got restricted back in November. Don't ask why, but I'll say that it involved an asshole of a friend. This is the message:

    This account will be restricted for 9 weeks (until Feb 4). Purchasing, gifting, trading, cd-key activation, and Steam Community access have been disabled. If the chargeback is removed, this restriction will be lifted and the content will be returned to your account.​
    Once the restriction has been lifted, the MasterCard card used will no longer be an accepted method of payment on Steam.​

    So, it's the 4th and I still can't do anything. Help?

    Any rough estimate? Also, I restarted and Steam showed that updating dialogue, but still nothing.

    It is still 10:00 on 2/3/13 over in California. Perhaps they are based on Pacific Standard time or some other time???

    Okay, now I'm facing a problem with TF2. The account is fine now, but on TF2, I'm still getting the same message that says that I don't have sufficient privileges to craft. And no item drops.

    Can you play online on TF2 at all? If you can, it's probably something with your inventory. Can you look at it and stuff? If you think it really takes too long (although honestly if you've waited 9 weeks you can wait one more day) you could try to send a support ticket yeah.

    This, wait until it's over, EVERYWHERE in the world. If not then, open up a topic on SPUF

    Also, if when you're planning to buy your next Steam game, please, for the benefit of your own wallet, contact me! Check my sig for details!

    I'd contact Steam support they'd be able to help you more than anyone here.
