    Scam Report

    Report Type: [Other] Any other fraudulant behavior
    Virtual item type involved: [TF2] Team Fortress 2 Items

    Accused profile: 76561198080895481

    Victim profile: 76561198058244011

    What happened? Description:
    Interesting new likely phishing / malware installation attempt. User added me asking if I'd like to join a competitive game with them. After agreeing, he asked if I had mumble. That was fine, up until he gave me a URL to download it which was (http://MALWARE-SUSPECTED-mumble-software-.org). It looks legit enough, but after Googling that URL, it's completely unrelated to the real mumble. So I'm almost certain this is a attempt to install malware / take over your account. It's the most creative attempt I've seen thus far, but felt the need to report it here so that no one else would fall victim to the say thing.​

    He just did the same to me around 5 minuttes ago. Luckily, I do not fall for such tricks, but I could imagine someone did.

    Oh great... I fell for that one. This is really new, never ever expected them to become so smart. Darn.
    What did I lose? Over 5000 refineds (mostly in keys (+100x keys) and Unusuals). And pretty much whole Steam Inventory(all tradeable games, they even took some of my Cards (I dont care about those) ). Great way to lose +700$ in several minutes.
    Those bastards even disabled my Trade Email Confirmation! Grr...
    I guess all I can do is now wait and hope Valve to give back my items ;( . I dont know if I am going to get any of those back, since the Trading Email Confirmation thing was disabled (by them!).

    As it is manual phishing, I've marked the account.
