    Steam Trade Scam Bot

    So some time ago my entire inventory was cleaned out. I had Dota 2 Arcanas, tons of immortals and am guessing it was about 500€ he stole from me in items. Now I have no idea how he did it. I just got a mail from Steam telling me there was a suspicious trade going on and if I did not agree to this trade I should press the cancel trade link in the mail. Did that and thought it was dealt with, until I logged in later that evening and realized that all my items got stolen.



    Does anyone know how he did it and what he used for it? I still have the users account name and I would really like to get my shit back, if it isn't sold yet.

    The current one going around is a video link and when you click it, you get prompted to upgrade your flash player then after that they own your account and email. They will then contact people on your steam friends list with same link. Not sure how it works but its not a keylogger, it is able extracts the passwords and accounts directly from steam and your browser.

    Yeah the thing is, he did not have access to my account. It was kind of a trade request which automatically got accepted or so.

    The link you clicked was infected.
    There is no chance to get the items back via steamsupport.
    The only thing you can try is to infect him too.
    But guys like him won't click links like this.
    So yeah, goodbye skins.

    They hijack your account for the trade then they bail.
