    Thanks, Andrew. This doesn't effect me, but I'll pass this info on to both my sons that do have Steam accounts.

    stuff like this used to be a common myspace trick. What i find interesting, is although theres programming, theres no real technology hacking so much as psychology hacking. tricking people to just hand the data over. We were all on to this sort of thing when it was common, now that its been a while I guess the scammers are back to it.
