Do you mean like a personal message a friend can send, or is there actually a inbox for steam..?

are you sure it was from an admin guy and not someone just trying to hack you by using social engineering?

If you received an instant message from an "admin" then it's a scammer. Steam will never send you official messages through IM or through your Steam Community page. It is always done through e-mail.

If you woke up to it, try sleeping in your bed next time

Sounds like a cheap scam if you ask me
