Just wanted to warn you guys, I posted my nickname to steam here yesterday, and then after a while some guy added me as friend and wanted me to join their group called Infinity Gaming or something. He gave me a link and it went to a website that looked like steam, had steam.community (or something) on the adressbar and everything, and the site asked my steam nickname and password. Apparently, this site was a fake steam site, and they (who ever they are) got my nickname and password. Today, when I try to logon to steam, it says my nickname and password are incorrect.

Bottom line is, I lost all my games, friends list etc.

It's not that big of a deal though, since I only bought a couple of very cheap games from steam, and every other game I have the retail copy of. So I can install my Orange Box, Counter-Strike etc. with them. But this still pisses me off quite a bit.

I don't think that the person who added me was from this site, I think they (the ones who did this) have some bots googling the internet for steam nicknames or something. But if you get added as a friend on Steam by a suspicious person, be careful.


Did you tried emailing Steam support ?? I'm sure they will help you getting your account back!! They certanly have means to do that , and detect fraud !
