    I've tried to add him but I have got just add from another who said that "Repair admin is currently busy. Please hold on and look for upcoming friend request"
    Unfortunately some people are too lazy to check and so it sometimes happens that they fell under their tricks.

    The trouble is that there are too many naive kids who do not know that Valve Employees do not message users in game, so sadly some of these pathetic fools actually get away with it. The more people like you who take them to task and post up here the better.

    If Steam REALLY did want to repair I'd think they'd have the account info. Viruses probably won't be solved by account by account. Obvious Scammer is obvious.
