    I can't login and the stats site is showing the same data for hours.
    Anyone else having problems?

    Here is what steam does:

    Using the

    button doesn't help, as any verification e-mails never arrive.

    Perhaps your Steam account was hacked.

    My Steam account was hacked twice now, both times Steam Support took care of it swiftly.

    Do so accordingly.

    I'm mainly confused that no steam related thing is updating or responding in any way.
    (steam stats, no e-mails...)

    Could you not prove it was your account by taking a picture of your creditcard you use on it with some of the details blanked out for safety?

    No, because I don't even have a CreditCard

    The hacker must of changed the email address tied to the account to make sure you couldn't log back in.

    Try to find your steam profile, the Steam ID never changes. It might have a different name and pic, and probably deleted everyone on your friends list, just like what happened to me.

    And if you ever bought any games on steam, prove the purchases

    Your backpack still has everything in it it looks like, so if is is a hack, nothing's been stolen... yet.

    How

    I checked backpack.tf multiple times already. But as you might have forgotten, you can't trade or use the market for one week after using a different PC.

    EDIT: backpack.tf says "Last Online: about 13 hours ago" which is impossible.

    the hacker was online 13 hours ago, then.

    or he just set the mode to offline

    I tried making an alt. account, but this is what I got:

    So it may be a problem with myself, or just Steam.

    EDIT: Tried again, did actually work. For now.

    okay then.

    if it is so, you're lucky

    exit steam then end steam.exe in task manager

    I guess hackers just don't like people who are Russian and speak Swedish, then

    Freenet.de showed problems in the past. Now not even Steam wants to send emails there.
    I'm guessing i have to somewhoe change my email adress without being able to log in.
    Fantastic

    I'm just lost. The Steam support is not gonna help if I can't proof my account ownership. I always used PaySafeCards which I simply bought somewhere and then entered the code into steam. But the support says this about them. I'm guessing I have to type in a used PIN, but I always throw these things away, as they are just trash afterwards.
