    be warned...

    If you get a message from someone saying:

    "i need 30members in my comunity... enter please?
    link is this : http://steamcommunitty-groups.awardspace.info"

    DO NOT Click the link and sign in. That message is from someone who has hacked the said person's account and they are trying to steal you login information!

    one of my friends got jacked and i fell for it also... i have already sent a steam ticket

    how.. i mean HOW could anyone fall for this?

    "steamcommunitty-groups.awardspace.info""

    .info is a cheap domain
    community is spelled incorrectly
    awardspace is a cheap host provider

    :facepalm:facepalm:facepalm

    thanks for heads up, sorry to hear about account, that sucks =(

    wierd thing is there are 2 different things going on i guess.. one goes to a external site (thats now blocked, i think) that has u fill out ur info... which i wouldnt have fallen for that, but the one i got went directly into the steam groups... it ws in steam itself and i never added any info what-so-ever...

    Damn that sucks :( Thanks for the warning, I got an invite while I was away. Saw your post so I didn't follow the link.

    I hope your account situation gets resolved soon...

    12 of my friends have been hijacked too! Thankfully one of my friends Kles was able to shutdown one of the hijacker's websites! :D
