I got Steam-Hacked

Post by Kasey Chang »

Someone impersonated one of you in Chat and got me to Steam Login to a supposed CS:GO tourney website.

Then they used that token to impersonate me to get more of you to do the same.

Who the hell is Stuie? :D I keep seeing that thread title and wondering if I've been blocked by someone on OO named Stuie all these years.

Ive gotten two...one from Stuie and one from Debris. No Kasey though. Some friend he is.

A lot of my friends list is from the original Red Dead 1 days. The rest I think are the Xmas stuff. Which I hope to do this year again.

Yep, we had three threads about you! ;)

Did you get it back? We have to find out what happens to Captain Chang!

Redid my security setup and password and authenticator. So I'm back in Steam proper now.

There is an attempt to get some of these threads closed and create a stickied master thread in Meta, given its importance and frequency.

And in case somebody else sees this, don't block. The instant you tell the scammer that you have reported the account, they move on to the next person anyway. The victims don't need punished or to lose their friends.

Instead just report them. I posted the whole 1-minute process in the Meta thread.

Locking this thread but there’s a sticked thread in Meta where all posts about being hacked can go.
