what is he hoping to get out of this? i mean what is your steam account actually worth to him for him to spend all this time trying to convince people to hand over their details? Surely 9/10 of the people he does manage to convince will be able to prove to valve its theirs and get it back in the end anyway?

I see no mention of them signing up to the forums though.

Plausible they've been hijacked.

I feel sorry for people who do fall for it :(

if anyone trys to scam you... you must report them as you could be helping someone who has had there account stolen and is trying to get it back.. if you view there profile you will see there is an option to report them.

I have done this to a few now lol and also be warned there is someone going round with the name steamgifts trying to scam people and ignore the last logon time for that account.

There's a really easy way to prevent your account being stolen however much you get phished.

Steam > File > Settings > Account > Verify Email

And now nobody can change your password without access to your email. Make sure it's not the same password as your email account though.

The only thing you need to worry about if you've verified your email is that someone could get you VAC banned by using your account to hack on VAC secured servers.

*. Watch Out .*

Postby Destroy on Thu Dec 10, 2009 11:35 pm

Watch out account Hackers around,..


this goes around a lot watch out guyz or u will be lost,
Ur Steam Account do not registeren on any site u dont know!!
My mate hes lost hes account 2 weeks ago, and from hes account
somebody sends the link to all members of them,..

Model 1 : http://pyros2011.ifrance.com

Model 2 : http://www.valvesoftware.com/people.html


Obviously fake!!
valve/Steam will never need your login,
info to do something to your account.

Greetz Paolo

edit: I have made the links within this now lead back to UKCS to avoid anyone heading to these sites by accident. Going to the sites above is up to you and any loss of steam accounts is no fault of UKCS it is your own. UK_Sniper

As bossman just said. Be extra careful of GroupInvites. Over the last 30mins atleast 4 ppl on my friendslist have fallen for this.

After being infected they send out this message:

One kilowatt-hour per sol is... it can be anything.. um...I suck at this ... oh FK it. I'll call it a "pirate-ninja".
