    yeah if a person you havent talked to in years messages you a shady link for a dumbass reason, maybe don't click it and log in with your steam.

    in other words, have some common sense.

    I didn't click on the link. Once it was messaged to me, I looked into what was going on and figured since it was a person that I met through this community, I thought I'd try and help some of the others here.

    She (I mean the person who took her account) messaged me the same thing, I do hope she gets her account back.

    Had this happen to me, except it was ME that had my password stolen. I have no idea how this happened considering I had two-step verification enabled... pretty scary stuff.

    This happens to me since I have kids about my age as friends. And my steam friends have the common sense of about -5

    Along the same vein, if any body's got a way to contact @Scotty (Destiny Blade), his account seems to have also been compromised. :(
