    I was just scammed by Brondite and now I can't get my account info and I'm shaking. This week was already horrible but THIS tops it!

    My account was https://steamcommunity.com/id/TimelessEcho and the scammer was

    I know brondite has already been logged, so I don't care about him. I just want MY account back!

    You need to send a Steam Support ticket since you are clearly talking about a hijacking.
    We can not assist you here with that.
    https://help.steampowered.com/en/

    In the meantime please don't post users ID's when asking questions here.
    This isn't where you submit reports nor do we review hijacking reports.
    I've hidden the users name from your message.

    I've sent the ticket. Can you tell me when I should expect a reply?

    Thanks for trying, at least. Wish Steam employees had an actual emblem to make this kind of scam easier to debunk

    Nobody working for Valve will EVER EVER NEVER message you about items or whatever over steam.
    They clearly have other ways of contact.
    Please keep that in mind.

    Thanks. I also locked the account like you recommended. Sucks that he got all my good TF2 items before stealing the account, but I only care about the games.
