Here's An Example Of A Phishing Attempt On A Steam Account

Back in March we posted a warning about thieves masquerading as Steam in order to get into customers’ accounts and download games to resell. One reader, Richard, just received this special “alert” on his Steam IM pane this evening.

Remember to always be on your guard for stupid stunts like this. If someone is alerting you to a security risk, take the time to contact the business yourself through the standard address you’ve always used. And of course never click a link someone gives you as part of a security warning.
