HI.

there is a new phishing going on.
i received a chat request today that had a link to a site that looked like steam site.
It asked username and password.
of course i did not take any screenshots of the chat. :/

but I have the scam site address.should i post it here?

A similar adress was reported as phishing at phistank.com

yep. and now it does not go to the site anymore. so they must have some kind of changing adress.

o FFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUu
Yep that looked like the link

OK...
I allready made a support request about this to Valve.
I just cannot describe to you the feeling that I had when I knew i had been scammed!
I had my guard down for a second and BAM! I feeel sooo embarrased because I should know these things.
I have heard about these things alot. But since it had been so quit here I was lulled into a false sense of security.

I just hope none of my friends clicked it...

So it's enough to just click the link? Without inserting name and password?

To my knowledge, no, the website normally tricks people into doing so.

but it can infect your system with something malicious.
