Hello SteamGifts ladies and gentlemen
Yesterday someone left the following message on my steam profile
"useful post https://www.reddit (DOT) com/search?q=title:"NEW_UPDATE_Giveaway_from_asian_guy_for_8k"&type=link&sort=new"
I already know it was a scam method, but when i clicked the link ( it is legit reddit, so ,must be save )
i saw a giveaway and a mod saying "Confirmed. Good luck guys"
Again, I clicked the steam profile link and boom, it took me to well made Fake steam community link
I was impressed how good it was, i know it is fake, but i was almost going to believe that it is real profile
Here is the fake link
https://steamcom.munuty( dot ) com/profiles/nQ42yIz
Please guys, always double check before you get hijacked
always Remember to check The Fake links
Good luck all

Thanks for your kind notice >.<
You are welcome
what a beautiful day, thanks for sharing all those links.
IT is more beautiful after your comment ♥
was ironical. why sharing dangerous/fake links?
Maybe to let people see the full story?
The first link is not dangerous, the 2nd one is hidden
do you think i'm doing ad advertisement to the scammer?
i won't say what i'm thinking.
It is up to you, also you can report me to the mods
agreed - feeding with information can be bad in its own way I suppose - I was worried this was itself a scam when bitskins.com was a used name - but I believe that might just be a common way people gain game exposure and refs and this is probably just a PSA by the OP for the communities benefit :)
Subreddit created 1 day ago and subreddit name is: "csgo_giveawaysClub"
You don't need to check the link to see that this is a scam.
As a trader with 1k rep, i don't need to check anything, all is fake
i was curies to check and learn about the new methods
"It's on social crapmedia, must be legit", yeah just no. :)
the link dosnt work :(
probably the scammers server went offline?
It is Working
it always redirects me to test.com. strange
One of the suspicious thing about that fake steam site that it automatically shows price in rubles ( FC New Dawn costing 1849 руб.)
Otherwise it's pretty well done, every steamcommunity page seems to be grabbed and implemented on the fake site. But it can't show store pages because it is a different page :P
And on a second look, the user's profile URL is fishy - the https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/ID format works, but it will get redirected to /id/ID formats ( For example this is icaio's page: https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198120091280, he is a great test subject! ) (No icaio was harmed during testing)
I guess they just expect people log in like madmen as they see the knives in the inventory.
it dose not show me any prices , maybe you are using add on?
"Otherwise it's pretty well done"
this is my point of this topic
"I guess they just expect people log in like madmen"
all scammers doing the same, they try to blind your eyes
I guess pages not grabbed and implemented, it just works as a proxy. So, if a page there is in steamcommunity - it will be accessibe on fake site too. I guess you will be even able to login, just your credentials will be saved and used to scam you.
Best way to avoid scam : always verify the URL before clicking a link or entering a login/password
also don't expect to win something good
Thanks for notice
you are welcome
Just to add a bit to icaio's comment:
Maybe throw in an extra space somewhere the real fake steamcommunity link to make it unclickable. While I do think that after someone checks your giveaways and reads the post about the site being fake, then proceeds to log in and gets their account stolen is kiiiiiiiind of at their own fault, but we protect kids from potentially harming themselves too, right? Sometimes you just need to count on people to be stupider than anticipated, and be smart instead of them, if they can't be.
(And yes, I think Khalaq will eventually show up telling you to remove / inactivate the fake link, so better do it now)
Guys, you act like i'm the scammer
if people cant real the title, is that my problem?
anyway, i have edit it
also, i now remember why i have stopped being active on this site
I genuinely don't think you're a scammer, and for myself I think you were pretty clear about that it is a fake site and caution is needed. Really, just chill a bit. Nobody wants to hurt you. I'm happy that I could see a phishing site in the works, and as you seen in my comment up a bit, I checked a few things to see how far that fake site stretches, or how does it work, because it is interesting.
And I really wasn't joking, the moderators usually ask to change working phishing links to inactive ones. And I suggested the change so you can avoid any consequences (even from people who ignore your writing and get scammed, then would try to blame you) because I do think that this topic is a useful contribution to the forums.
Ok, thank you
Maybe edit the links to make them not clickable like this:
not fake bump
it's impressive how much they invest to scam you
Can you really steal that much with that?
If they scammed only 1 guy, they took all his gifts and maybe other items
in my case, i have a lot of items that worth to steal. so why not
maybe I just have too few stuff to steal
I have some money from card sales, but that's it
Happened to me yesterday too.
new methods never ends
r u tring to scam me man?! ;)
have a bump on me
and thanks for the GA :3
wow, fake links are really well made, have a bump for awareness and other various unknown reasons xd.
I don't get it. What's new? The link sends you to an intermediate site before the fake Steam site?
Bump and thanks
Thanks, I'll get right on it as soon as I'm done sending my personal data and credit card number to that Nigerian prince who needs a few bucks to be able to wire me $5 millions 👀
I reported that guy/link to Steam last week or so. Thanks for the heads up, though.
