Random People Friend Requesting?
I've gotten over 50 friend request past week, and They're all private profiles, and they have no connection, no friends, no groups, not even in the recent players list? I block them of course, but then another one adds. Kind-a makes me nervous one is going to hack me or scam me (ofc I don't trade)

Block them.
Dont follow bot commands.
That is safe.

Yeah. If they have their profile private, be wary.
One thing I notice is some of the random spam on the forums. All kinds of garbled posts with random letters.

Could be people that want a community badge, but anyone with half a brain can form a normal sentence, or I dunno, post their rig in the hardware forum. At least some kind of sensible post.

Since those posts aren't sensible in any way, I just suspect they're from bots. And I block those accounts pre-emptively.

I get several a day who are no doubt after my account. I just block every user with level 0 as they are most likely bots or users up to no good.

Hello,

Just got added by a guy that mentionned that he can't add me ....
Pay attention to forwarded url like {LINK REMOVED}

Complete url for phising : {LINK REMOVED}
Profile url of the bot : http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198151890881/

Do you know who I need to contact to report phising on Steam ?

Thank in advance

Remove the link firstly, people are curious by nature.

Goto his profile page and click more (top right corner) then click report violation, fill it in and ok it. You might want to block them too.
