Although there has always been people pulling some sort of scam in the video gaming world in order to take possession of something that doesn't belong to them, whether it's a game account, a skin, a weapon or virtual money, lately we have been watching an increasing amount of Steam account related misappropriations, not to call it a different name for some are Police cases, by swindlers that usually promise the "victims" goods that they don't deliver in exchange for something of value, or by cancelling some payment.

 Steam Scams

Exchanging stuff in Steam means taking a risk in the current situation, for someone has to perform the first step and put some trust in the agreement, many times leaving the outcome of the deal in the hands of people that faked their ID in some clever way (adding a dot to a famous nick, adding a famous tag and logo or even creating a group with a well known name), never to be seen again, along with the lost goods. Even if the persons involved in the deal belonged to a famous organization or are in some way connected to a name you know, always be careful and double check among the organization, your friends and the general community if those individuals are to be trusted or just trying to take advantage of you.

It's not the first time that gamers have come to us, asking if someone's Steam profile is to be trusted and the deal legit. Although we have no tolerance for this kind of scams, all we can say is confirm that the profile belongs to a staff member, a player, a former staff member or former player, obviously not being able to vouch for some of them, as we have no power to make people give back what they wrongfully took as their own property. Steam should have a marketplace where gamers could do safe trading, acting as an intermediary and validating the exchange so that no one would be left empty handed, putting and end to this growing rip-off wave.

Steam Scams

Be alert, don't be naif, don't try to outsmart others, never give your account details to strangers, watch out for scams such as the "give your goods to a friend and I'll do the same" and expose as many swindlers as you can so other people know not to make deals with them. At the end of the day, it's all in your hands not to be fooled.
