Do NOT, I repeat DO NOT reply any users who ask for your password over steam.

Valve/Steam would NEVER ask for your password.



A lot of people have given their pw to a steam user called Automate Message.




Would be a shame to loose all your games


<3 Jens

They've become more advanced now.

If you reply with anything besides your un/pw, you get the following auto-reply:

Automated Message : Error: Improper Format. Please use format: [Username/Password].
Thanks Varegg




So it looks legit. But it's not.

I suppose this should be stickied. Most people are not fooled by this, but some are.

Also, the first line in any steam chat window is the link Never tell your password to anyone, which links to here.

You know, you can report them to. :3 Just send in their Steam Community name and they will get their account disabled or something.

I think only a screenshot is needed because they might record all the chats and it should be easy to check if it's fake or not. Just PM the stuff to any moderator on the Steam forums.

You'd be suprised on how many idiots actually give out their password. *sigh*

Easy - trick them into thinking that they are homicide suspects.

them: Hi, post your Username/address blah blah"
you: Hello sir, this is the police. We are currently at the scene of a crime where *insert fake name* and his wife have been raped and murdered. We would like to ask you a few questions. What was your relationship with *john smith*?
them: *some sort of reply*
you: Sir I'm going to need to ask for your details. Home address, phone number, email and full name. You are currently the main suspect of this double rape-murder.
them: *if its not a bot, freaking out. if a bot, meh no point*
you: Sir, we currently have possession of your IP and it will be no time before we have tracked you down manually. It would be far quicker and look better in court if you just told us now.

ect ect.

Although, I hope that no one from here is stupid enough to get caught by this

If you're dumb enough to fall for this scam you deserve to lose your steam account.

Similar scams exist for World of Warcraft: The video tells you to write your Account name and Password and your "targets" account name and server, or something similar, and then send it to various email addresses with the name blizzard in it for authenticity. My friend Created one of these videos, and I just laughed at him and called him a fool because I believed no one would be stupid enough to fall for that. Nevertheless he came into possession of at least 15 Accounts, 3 of which had fairly well geared 70's on them. He has since deleted his video from youtube, but still retains possession of the accounts.

Thanks for sharing, you just called haffeysucks a dumbass, he fell for it but fortunate enough he misspelled his password (he changed password anyways)
