  • [INFO] Steam Users Beware!

    Just had some random send me a friend request. Then tells me his friend wants to do some steam trade, but cant add me and sends me a link to add him. Which requires you to login to your steam and download a verification thing. Just be warned in case this happens to you! Luckily I was already suspicious when I got the message and didn't give out any of my account info. The link it sends you to sort of looks like a steam link with a quick glance.

    If you look closely you will see that it isn't to the official steam community. The players name in question Nikita and his profile is private (go figure) I have already reported him. Just want my fellow TG'ers to be safe. This apparently is such a problem they even have "Trade Scam" on the report function.

    That would explain the sudden increase in friend requests. Ty Dredge

      Indeed. I received a request. I usually let it sit there for awhile.

          I bought some crappy stat track CS GO items with my inventory public and I've gotten at least 3 friend requests from steam level 0 players. The amount of fake accounts lately has been concerning.

            It has! Just yesterday I got another one of these requests.
