Just had this shit happen to me, unfortunate the guy wasn't creative enough to humor me. Steam scammer thread?
I don't know who could possibly be stupid enough to actually copy and paste that link into a browser bar, then enter their steam info into it. Maybe if it was a clickable link it might be more understandable but I mean damn, at some point you should notice the random u in the URL. This was a really lazy phishing attempt and I'm honestly kinda disappointed.
How about you visit the site instead? Typing anything in either box and pressing submit brings up a dialog that asks you to install steam guard on your computer, which shows that:
1. The phisher is so bad at programming he can't create a SQL submission form
2. That you have to be REALLY dumb in order to fall for this.
Whoever falls for this shit deserves to be scammed.
What's the matter anon, you gonna act like a bitch ass nigga?
The people who are stupid enough to fall for this shit is why we have warnings when clicking links in steam chat that break 4chan links.
Retard protection is also why we no longer have /me chat.
Were you EMP|Destro as well?
I have a guy from sweden in my list that have autism
he lost one week ago his account thanks one of this steamexe scams
he will maybe get back his account but sure lost all his item
>mfw me and a friend scammed kids in TF2
We had a youtube video with "unlock all weapons for free tutorial" with an external crappy program where they enter their steamusername and password.
Its unbelievable, we had like 8000 accounts at the end of the year 3000 without steamguard 'n shit.
We only took items though. Best thing we got was an unusual hat.
What I don't understand is how people are stupid enough to actually fall for it. You'd have to be literally RETARDED to fall for something like that. Same thing with TF2 scamming (paypal). If you fall for it you genuinely deserve to lose your account/items.
>Set up my hat for trade
>Guy tells me he will pay what I ask
>Just add this other guy
>Other guy goes "yeah you were slow so I wont pay full price"
Is it common for 3rd party people to arrange trades like this?
What the fuck was that all about?
It's extremely shit and the epitome of digging through the biggest sewer in existence for diamonds that are probably not actually there.
I must like the taste of shit since I keep going back.
Just delete this thread and go live in a mountain OP.
Can they even steal accounts nowadays with all the bullshit measures gabe implements?
I have to send him blood samples every time I want to sign in from a different web browser on the same fucking computer.
Had this happen since I haven't traded in a long time. Got suspicious when I loaded up an english steam community and not my magical chinese one that I somehow managed to get when clicking on a link. Plus it asked me to install Steamguard.
To be fair, if steam even so much as blips offline then everyone in the game disconnects, and T.Hawk hasn't even won a round yet, so I'm gonna give him the benefit of the doubt and just assume that steam was the thing that fucked up, and Destro didn't ragequit.
It's a bot, a zombie account from someone else who was scammed. You're talking to yourself, retard
>Came back from the The International
>Couple goodies plus a golden immortal
>Scammers every single fucking day
Please make it stop.
Haha, this is true. He dc'ed in the middle of a match, I'd assume due to Steamworks shit. The screenshot opportunity was just too good to pass up. Who would have thought I'd have a chance to fuck with him on /v/ of all places though.
So how do these work?
You click on the link and what's there? Typical "PUT IN INFO NOW" shit?
How do these people find you if you don't use trade sites? Not even just scams, but random fucking Russians trying to trade me bullshit items. I get a few random adds a week and have never used a trade site.
This is Loony Toons level of stupid.
Do I laugh or feel bad for how fucking retarded this guy is?
>have steam literally just for Street fighter 4
>nobody ever tries to scam me
>people add me to their friends list, but I don't add them
Feels good man.
If your inventory is set to public then people have developed catalogs and trawlers that search for specific items in peoples inventories.
So if you have a Dragonclaw Hook in DotA or some Unusual Hat in TF2 and your inventory is set to public then you're probably in a few databases somewhere being listed as a scam target.
>log on steam one day
>steam guard notifies me someone tried to log into my account
its from russia
i wish i had screencapped that but i panicked so hard i immediately changed password and didn't think about it at the time
I had some guy call my house and said that if I hung up, he was going to send the police to my house because he was with the IRS. He also had an extremely heavy chingrish accent.
These scams are getting more and more wild.
Just had the same thing happen to me.
Is there some large scam operation at work here?
Here's something relevant
>never get scammers because I always give away my stuff
>that feel when
My friend opened a crate in CS:GO a few days ago and a $100 gun popped out. After about 1 minute his steam was an endless scrolling wall of friend requests popping up, WAY more people than were on the server. He had to sign out to stop it.
I don't do the trading and the most valuable thing I own is a genuine pipboy which I think isn't every valuable, so I wouldn't know. Still, if whatever you got is limited to only that event then its only going to get more and more valuable and scammers will get more and more annoying.
>had 3 dragonclaw hooks
>2 spent on shit, one of those things was a greevil during the crafting season
>XxsnoopyXx has changed their name to theoriginal28
>theoriginal28 (2):hey its me ur brother
I'm the third party person for my friend for his CSGO skin trades. Mainly because I'm more experienced and I know when he's gonna get scammed. So I just pretty much go into Skype call with him, make a giant group chat with people offering to trade for the item, consult with the buyers while I chat to my buddy on Skype.
We've done it like 3 times and the most obvious scams are PayPal payments, but I say to my friend (I know him in real life, I wouldn't fuck him over) ''hey, if you want me to do this trade, just hand the skin over, I'll do the trade, and make sure the cunt gives what he offers'' and he'd just say ''fuck trading, if I sell it on Steam Market, I don't have a chance of being robbed''
and that's how it usually ends up.
This thread makes me miss Runescape and luring people down the Mole Hill, and getting them to extinguish their light source.
I live in a small town. They actually had to run an article in the newspaper recently about a phone scam epidemic. They were targeting old people's houses by calling and saying their grandchildren were being held hostage and if they didn't pay up right now over the phone they were going to kill them. They people they were calling were so old and senile it was working almost everytime.
This has been happening to me for the past week
Some fucking Indian calls my phone, tells me it's an urgent matter, and that the police will get involved if I ignore it
I start asking questions, and they get really angry and defensive
My aunt got a phone call saying that they were going to kill my cousin as soon as he stepped out the door unless she paid up. She kept them on the phone until he made it to class. Mexico is fucking insane.
"Jagex blox ur PW if u say it backwards: *******"
To make it worse, I was a member on a free world.
I hope that guy had a fun five minutes drinking my shitty running potions or whatever before getting locked out.
I sold a hat on the fucking marketplace for 74 euro. It got sold about 3 weeks later but during that time i had countless dumb fucks trying to add me for their pathetic attempt at jewing.
Fuck i hate kids, and they even had the fucking nerve to get angry at ME for telling them to fuck off or buy the hat for the price it's listed at.
My mom was called once saying that the utility bill was past due and the payment had to be done at that instant or services were going to cut out. She managed to call the utility company to confirm and they told her it was a scam, and to try to stall him as long as possible while a report and an attempt to find the scammer was made.
I am officially dead
>mfw I said to a friend the same thing on
>his password was MegaMan3
>change it to niggergaysex96
>post gay porn on his account
>mfw he added me on his new account after he couldn't figure out how to reset his password.
some indian guy called me to say that my computer might have hidden viruses that can't be detected, he hung up after i told him i didn't have a computer
he didn't even say goodbye ;_;
Sure, I don't have much right now but I can bring some stuff over from my alt.
I was dumb enough to fall for the "Alt+F4 doubles your money" scam. Fortunately, I only lost a tinderbox because I wanted to confirm if I'd get two tinderboxes. I bet the scammer thought I was fucking with him for leaving such a useless item. He wouldn't have gained anything anyways, I had at most 800 coins to my name at the time.
Then there was someone who broke into my account and stole everything they could steal. A few days of running red spider eggs, mining essence, and mining coal eventually got my stuff back though.
>implying that means shit
Ultra is fucking broken online right now, there is shitty lag and connections everywhere, he lost connection, he didn't leave, if he left the session it would look like this
shotofags getting btfo
I'm not OP though, I'm a different person with 4 hours in Street Fighter and I fucking suck at the game and never play online.
>You should activate your domain www.steamcoummuniity.com in admin panel before use.
I've had people ragequit first round before because I was obliterating them. People ragequit at different times for different things, but pretty much all of them boil down to "I'm getting my ass handed to me and can't deal"
they direct you to a "support" site where they get you to install a virus/backdoor/botnet whatever
plenty of normals fall for it all the time because they dont know how to computer, just think of your trusting grandmother getting a call like that
>tfw someone tried to impersonate a well known trader and added me
>the well known trader is on my friends list
>invite him into the chat with the scammer
>scammer instantly deletes and blocks me
i just wanted him to see how coincidental they both had the same name
over 800 market transactions in 2014
not a single scam ever
these guys got the idiot musk on or something...
>Ultra Street Fighter IV
A different text box shows up when someone leaves, nobody in their right mind would actually go through the trouble of disconnecting their computer from the internet to leave a match rather than just alt+f4ing
Have you ever gone to the VAC ban section on the forums? Spend five minutes in there and you're gonna see just how retarded things can get.
>playing d2 back in the day
>some guy says he can dupe my rare longsword
>believe him and drop it
>he grabs and leaves
>naive enough to think hes coming back
>try to message him
>that sinking feeling that i fucked up
I lost faith in humanity that day.
Now i just give shit away to my steam friends to make up for faggotry in this world.
>steamfriends birthday comes during a sale
>hint he wants games
>me and the rest of the group buy copies of badrats
>he wakes up in the morning with 43 copies
>be a tf2 player forever ago
>guy tries to scam me out of an item i jewed
>decide to tell him a little story about being a man on a boat
>he adds other people from my friends list who have the same item
>we each take turns slowly luring him into a continuous story across the four of us
wish I still had the screenshots.
Russians are weird people.
When I wanted to jew on of them I just used google translate for "Hi" and the new of the item. The must trust their comrades.
I used to type shit like "Please accept I don't have the whole day to jew you this shit" with some of them and they didn't even notice.
what fucking third world country do you live in?
also, why would you even bother asking questions? just fucking hang up. or tell him to fuck off, then hang up. send the fucking navy seals, see if I care. even IF (and that's a BIIG IF, like REALLY fucking big) they send someone, they can't legally come in without a court order. if they do, you can sue their ass for threatening you over the phone and violation of private property.
My Steam friend list went from like 20 people to 40 after posting my SteamID in a fighting game thread. I still play endless with a bunch of /v/bros and they're cool as shit.
Stop adding people from /v/ you find in shitty threads, thats your problem.
Just like I'm laughing at you right now?
I trade a lot so I get these 3 times a day, you know that if he added you after you posted something on the market or on cs:go lounge there's 99% chance that he's a bot, right ?
>I traded Rotten Stache when it came out for Dendrochron and Icy tiny skin
worst experience ever, shits worth 50 dollars now
fuck me , was bad at trade
How do people get a hold of your IP through steam? I've had an incident where someone began to act like a weirdo and telling me my city and my ISP and how I was going to need a lot of money to get my shit back because it was my fault he was bad at Doters. My connection got dodgy, but I reset my router and that was the end of it. I'm guessing he thought he was clever having a shitty DDOS client.
It's rare as fuck because only people that preordered L4D got one.
Of course, the Frying Pan and Ellis's hat aren't worth nearly as much because a bunch of people were jews and thought they could get a similar price, which caused the market to be flooded as fuck and made the price negligible.
I-i actually fell for that onceI was pretty drunk tho. I dont know what i was thinking , guess i wasnt really thinking. I instantly changed back pass tho so he didnt even get anything out of it. He sold 2 items for 0,07 on the market and the money was still in my own account so.
Should be fine now.
>None of them have any rounds won
>Pulling the plug
I call bullshit. With the BP, any sane player would recover from that
>Being so much of a fucking beta you have to apologize to /v/ for playing Dota 2
Honestly I didn't care that you got rekt in the first place but you just made yourself look like a piece of shit that worships /v/
>Implying they rage quit
I had drop outs in Tekken and I always get paranoid people think I rage quit. Vice versa for other players when I'm beating them and in the middle of them recovering, there is a disconnection.
I fucking hate retards who fall for this shit. Pic related.
I put the Lina arcana on the market for $30 (got it as a drop from the Year Beast exploit) and probably got like 10+ adds. Ignored everyone and someone eventually bought it. Some of them probably just wanted to negotiate but I'm sure most were scammers. Still, I don't live in fucking India, the price is the price
I fucking hate this, it's so fucking annoying when a friend sends a link it takes 20 seconds for it to open because of this shit.
> Got added for my earbuds.
> Just a kid trying to lowball me, after feigning to know the worth.
> Tell him I'd trade him for a shit game on steam.
> He buys it
> Tell him I've changed my mind and watch him flip his shit.
It's funny every time.
It was one of the first promotional items in the game and you can't get it via drops, only if you preordered L4D2, making it a bit rare and rather valuable over the years. Especially since latter promotional items can appear via drops (minus a green font color indicating they are 'genuine").
I'd imagine that they just automate the process, since SteamKit is a thing and they can just use the ssfn to disguise their client as the victim's, allowing them to bypass the Steam Guard trade restrictions. A few automated API calls later and all your stuff is gone.
A RAT is easily defeatable by turning the computer off anyway.
>add guy from /v/ because he claims to be lonely
>be nice and try to get to know him
>he's not interested
>HEY CAN I HAVE YOUR PASSWORD?
Yeah fuck you kid. Never adding anyone from /v/ anymore
That was me. The artist is a pretty cool guy. I requested him if he could put his Reset doujins on DLSite since I can't really go to Comiket myself and he actually did put them for sale one month later and without DRM too.
>some dipshit wants to trade $250 CSGO knife for BF4
>tell him to give me knife first and I'll email him the code
>he gives me knife and I email him some stupid code
>he gets mad
>I tell him that people on the internet are dicks and don't care about one another
>give the knife back and teach him not to trust anyone unless its local or other person goes first
>he gives me a good AWP skin just because
>2 weeks later
>same thing happened
>asks for the AWP skin back
People are stupid.
mfw in a one month period
Also anyone else having issues with steam lately with images not loading and links not working?
What do you faggots do to get so much fucking attention from scammers?
I've had my steam account for 7 years now, shitload of items and never once been contacted by one of these fags.
I keep putting up csgo guns on the steam market, and then get adds from people asking for my gun, offering shitty 5cent skins for them
In retrospect I should've screencapped their poor asses and put them up on my profile for laughs
The trick is to add people in threads about a specific game. I actually met a lot of cool people from here by adding people to race with in Sonic Racing threads. Just never ever add anyone from a Steam Friends thread because they are just horny neckbeards looking to ERP.
If I uploaded it the first thing that'd happen would be some fucking jew uploading the book on sadpanda so the faggot could get some 'points' for uploading it then the jap would upload it on all jap p2p as well and the artist would no longer sell any copy of it.
Never forget, bitches and whores.
It was over an enforcer right after the Uber Update, friend who mained spy really wanted one badly so I turned it down. Bros before hoes.
The hilarious part is that the link filter doesn't even work, since you need to copy+paste the url
the ones that surprise me most are that say something about their girlfriend wanting to add the guy they trying to scam
i cant relate because the though of going for used goods hurts my pride as a man (and yeah stealing is bad)
but what does autismfree normalfag think about that? like he would start something with someones girlfriend?
They probably check for time played, how many games you have, etc.
For example, say you unbox a 300 dollar knife, but you have 1500 hours playing CSGO, and over 200 games, then it is less likely that you will be sent as many trade requests than a guy with 40 hours that got a lucky uncrate.
best one that ever happened to me, owning a 200$ dota items has its fun moments
>but I like my hook
>I LIKE YOUR MUM AND WHAT
>Be an OXS user
>Phishing and exe programs aren't mac compatible so I can paste in the links and download them at will and nothing happens
>MFW some faggot wants my ugly as fuck hat.
My mom got a call once saying that I had been kidnapped. Coincidentally that day I had skipped school because I had a cold or some shit.
She said with a "distressed" tone: "Huey?"
And the guy pretending to be me kidnapped said: "yes mom its me"
And she replied with: "Where are your brothers, Dewey and Louie?"
And they hanged up, shit was hilarious.
That reminds me
>playing tf2 with a friend
>he invites his bud in
