I thought I would warn people of this. I am getting
1 free game for new users!
take the game you want!
Then a website underneath from someone in my friends list in steam. If you get this from a user in your friends list, they might have been hacked. Do not click on the link if you get this message from anyone. Thought I would come on here and warn others of this. I hope you all have an awesome day!

WHEN WILL HUMANS LEARN FINALLY THAT THERE ARE NO FREE THINGS IN LIFE? i never take free games unless its on steam or humble, never going for any suspicious sites, never used even orly, i thought not worth the risk for few cents value assetflips.
and collector accounts fall for this, really? they arent kids definetly.
world need global internet police and hunt down hackers, and humanity need again draconian rules against criminals.
"WHEN WILL HUMANS LEARN FINALLY THAT THERE ARE NO FREE THINGS IN LIFE?"
Bit of a strange statement to find on a website literally dedicated to giving free games to people. Funny you also obmit this site from your source of free games with 645 wins.
ok, badly formulated question, looks like it was unavoidable that someone will jump on it.
but still, its obvious if an unknown site offer with links free stuffs its scam, especially if they want steam login too on their own site, unimaginable that collectors, whose adult so learned things about life already still fall up on such things.
On other hand i have less wins than given away games, both in number and value, and about 50? more running right now. Your comment try to make the impression on others that i only leeching games as mentions only the wins.
I only mentioned wins since you mentioned you only take free games from Humble and Steam. Seemed a bit ungrateful to all the givers you won from here, was all.
Csontzuzo is a good guy, Hassat. His statement is more about people getting scammed and no one doing anything about it rather than the freebies. He gives and organizes as well as wins. I could see not knowing him more than by looking at a profile that you could look into his statement more than that, but i can assure you he's good people.
I don't doubt that. It's just weird to see "no free games" knowing the site we on. "Only free games from humble and steam" seems a bit disrespectful to all wins here. Might have thought it was obviously knowing the site we're on, but it becomes a little headscratching having both of these in 1 single post together.
There's little we can do but warn our friends, and most of us do so. Rest is up to Valve and hopefully awareness making the tactic worthless. Till the next convincing thing they come up with :/
I got ya, makes sense!
Yep, hopefully things change in the future with Valve. :3
I think I just learned, Csontzuzo, and sorry if you got any messages from my account!
No, seriously, not a kid here, collector, I fell for it. I was preoccupied and I was totally not paying attention. You'd also think that you're protected, hey steam authenticator? check. Linking an account? what could they possibly do besides access your info? Whooop, nope. My bad, a moment of weakness turned into now 13+ hours of waiting and wondering what the heck Steam support is doing to fix this. XD
The problem is that if you input your details, they try to login on the real steam too right away and if authenticator code asked there they show it up for you and automatically submitted your entry on real steam too, or no clue, i imagine it work like that.
You will get your account back, the main problem they steal items, wallet, that might be not returned by valve and it could be even worse. You might end up with VAC or game ban which will be on your profile page for the eternity, i hope it wont happen to you.
Feel free to add me back once recovered your account, i removing hacked accounts always because of security reasons.
Exactly. I'm worried about all that too. I hate having my rep tarnished. :\
Yep, you'd think Authenticator has you safe. I said it a few times other places, and I'll say it here. Lots of people, including myself, wouldn't have a hijack issue if they just also verified any changes to the account rather than just saying, "this removed, this changed, if you didn't do it, contact support". Too late then apparently.
I'll def add you back once this is all resolved. Thanks! :)
someone REALY want a free game for you come on take it !
A weak ago, a scammer added me to trade, and he just wanted from me to login to a shady site
i made a report to SteamRep, but they mark it as Invalid, the reason was
"You've made enough reports here to know by now that we do not review hacking/phishing reports.
This link is clearly a phishing issue since it prompts for a fake steam login when you go to log in. Make sure you check the site out/verify its intentions before reporting here..if its phishing do NOT report that here.
Go straight to valve
When people do nothing to stop this shit, more victims will come everyday
i have access to my account again, all is right in the world. now lets hope everyone else effected can get their accounts back.
that's the guy that got me, appears he's been banned
yay! glad you got it back!
He has just a game ban. Are you sure he is not just another compromised account?
Also calling users out is not allowed here.
Glad to hear, did they stole your loots from inventory?
How long did it take BreadMan? I'm still waiting for Steam to get back to me. They're now playing my games and who knows what else. :(
Also got the message but from one on my current friendlist (so i guess he has been hijacked prior).
Probably wouldn't have clicked on it anyway but thanks for the warning.
So that's why I had 30 messages on Steam this morning. Looks like even a member of SG moderator team took the bait.
2 more friend accounts fell for it.
now with: rolldatgamexx.com
Emberke and RedDevil_mm
Thx for the notice
you're welcome :)
And because steam always works perfectly, i had chat notifications stuck over my stock meter in GTA online.
And my account is gone before I read this
Well, it's definitely turned out to be a surprisingly effective way of cleaning out your friends list.
Also, several of my friends on the ole friends list looks like they took the bait, and It was really hard not to make a shitty pickachu joke :/
I got 3 hacked friends, each sending me 10 messages throughout the day.
sigh i got excited when I saw 30 notifications -_-
This seem to be the scammer IP: 22.214.171.124 (RU)
and this is the recovery email set by her/him:
at least that is the IP associated to the person that changed my phone number and password.
Has anyone else been scammed by the same ip address?
Also port 5666,65234 and 65235 are open and running nagios and a proxy server
It’s like an epidemic, so scary.
recived one msg from a friend i guess he got hacked? not sure tho he isnt new to the steam like lvl160+ with over few k of games... damn and i blocked him now i feel bad if he is hacked
He would be hijacked, yes.
Higher level high gamescount would actually be likelier to see this from, since many collect all +1 they can get, and if it looked legit enough...
You can open the link. You won't get hacked for that. You will get hacked if you login through steam to that website, because doing that will redirect you to a false page.
well I fell for it too :(
