In the past week, I've got 3 messages like that. Not to mention from very reputed traders on ST (Probably their accounts were stolen or gained access to by scammers).
By very reputed I mean over 500+ reps with no negative and have been a long member of trading section.
Seriously wtf is going on. Not to mention, they instantly unfriend me after I decline their request saying I'll not login via steam on any site I don't deem "known site" or one that I have used in the past showing that its most likely not them using the account.
I'll not disclose their steam ID's here for privacy reasons ofcourse, but seriously, if any of you fell for that, please deauthorize the stuff you have attached to your steam if any, and reset your API keys. Preferrably change your password as well.

I believe their accounts access was taken, so I'll not take drastic measures such as reporting since some are really nice people I know.

I know its a scam, but considering how many messages I've got in the past week, I believe many people have been falling for this. So just wanted to make an announcement here to warn anyone who has fell for that.

Your report to Valve doesn't say "My friend is being bad", but rather "My friend needs help".

I had a similar situation with a steam's friend account some months ago (my friend don't play that game, and use to wrote me on spanish, so a message on english asking for votes for csgo team was a red light). I reported the situation (to steam's support), telling that I supossed that his account was stoled; my friend recover the account five or four days after.

PD: Is like Gaffi said, you're giving help to your friends when you report it
