Debris account just hit me up with the same stuff. So I blocked him.

Debris isn't a problem - just the scammer who got his account. Consider reporting him (which hurts the thief) rather than blocking him.

This would have been a perfectly good spot had we not had a running thread. To be honest, this may even be better, as it's more likely to attract notice.

I wonder why it hasn't been posted in the OO group page on Steam. Of course, if no one checks there then it might not be meaningful.

I don't think anyone has posted anything in that group in years. I suppose the OO Facebook page might have been a good place to mention it, as it does get a little activity now and then, and maybe the Discord.

Do us a favor - change the title of the first post to "Hacked Steam account report thread" then we can use it for all of the reports. And if you could, quote the following in that post:

Do not ignore it or unfriend the person. Report them. It helps our real friend, and it helps OO. After X number of people report an account as compromised, Steam locks it, which in turn prevents the scammer from doing even more damage, including to our other friends.

It is easy, and takes less than a minute. Go to their profile page, and...

I did that. I also sent him a PM with the link to the Steam page for how to get help.

And I missed this thread. I searched for "hacked" and found the other two.

We should probably see about getting one of the 4 threads stickied. Since it doesn't seem like the issue is going to go away soon.

I agree. And getting the others closed. This is sort of a high-priority thing when it occurs, as it is something that can hurt other members. I'd suggest this thread - with the updated title and content, if Daehawk will do so, as posts in Meta are rare enough that they get attention more quickly.

Daehawk, nevermind. I'm going to create a new thread to get the right stuff into the first post, then ask for the rest to be locked (or merged), if possible.

Thanks, Daehawk. I decided to start from scratch just to make sure that the first post had all the needed information in it, ready to go for victims, friends, and to warn others.

The (hopefully) official thread for future reports.

There’s a “master” hacked Steam account thread in Meta which has been stickied for your convenience. If your Steam account has been hacked refer to that thread. Thanks!
