Potential Phishing Link
So some random person added me, asking me to add his friend, giving me the link to his profile.
The link had steamcomnurlity, instead of steamcommunity.
Seeing that it is late at night, I accidentally clicked it and logged in.
I realized that it is a phishing link and clicked off and changed my password.
Nothing's happened, so hopefully I'm safe. If not, what should I do?
Beware of suspicious activity. I'm not trading late at night again.

And report the web site. To it's hoster, to Google, to Microsoft.

Also run an anti malware prog. You could get keyloggers or other stuff on your system from scamming sites.

Might as well add it here:
Here's one of them, although I suspect it's a hijacked account.
http://steamcommunity.com/id/***removed**


Now here's the problem, that account has been doing it for 4 hours+ already. As you can see the amount of comments are totalling 20 pages already.

And there's multiple accounts doing this atm, and the more people that get caught with this scam, ther more account scam bots there are.

It's definately bots at work here, you get added like 1 second after bumping a trade. Then it removes itself a few seconds after posting the trade link.

I'm not naming and shaming a person.
That's a bot.

If you're new to the forums the rule says:

"Do not do any of the following:
Post personally identifiable information (i.e. name, address, email, phone number, etc.)"

There's no personally identifiable information in anonymous steam accounts.
It's ok how it is handled, but you can't know by just reading the rules.

Lets say a second that is not a bot and that is someone that did not agree to trade with you ok?
Steps to show him what is it to not agree
1) copy his profile link
2) tell every one on the fourms his a bot
3) post that his a scam bot

Get the point? and even if its a bot or not its naming and shaming i never sayed someone i just sayed no naming and shaming
