Saturday Steam Scammers - Sensational! - A Forum Thread for Steam.

Not enough 'S' words in title. Suggestions Welcome

It's been a while since a random invite tried to scam me for either buying my account, trading for my account, or pretending to be Valve -- always a fun one.

    Every day problems. Steam wouldn't be the same without these idiots anymore. Most are so uncreative though.

    Who would do such thing like that? Trade your "own Steam account" through the 'trade' system? That doesn't even possible. What the hell?!

    lol this is nothing i submitted a ticket today on steam support ( not sure if this will help though ) in INDIA i see only steam sellers , they sell hacked steam a/c's , they get from some main seller who have them in very large quantity , and they sell a/c's to people at Rs 150 ( 2.505 US Dollar ) [ With Games for example : - Counter-Strike 1 Anthology , Counter-Strike Global Offensive , etc.. and some on demand ] Steam a/c's selling in India is increasing like a business ! -- and i never saw those a/c's getting banned @[email protected] or anything ! ( which they sell )

    Oh,I remember the last time someone tried to scam me.First he begged and asked me if I could buy him a game.Then he asked me if I want black ops and sent me a link. I was like "ok thanks bro" and he kept asking me "did you login?".I said "yeah and I got the game,thanks a lot".He asked me again and I replied "yes" again. After 5 minutes I told him "Are waiting for my password to pop up in your e-mail?" and he removed me.Of course I kept a link of his profile and reported him.

    Thankfully I've yet to come across one, but I did have a script kiddie try to make a $170 purcase while they were backdoor'd into my computer. I've already addressed it with Essex police though.
