    What happened? Description:
    SteamcommURLity site phishing scammer. I was phished (because I didn't see the misspelled URL) and provided my creds to the fraud site. Luckily I had Steam Guard so I was able to recover my account within a minute or so. No items were taken, my Steam Wallet is fine, and no games were purchased, added, or removed.

    Steam did not warn me when I clicked on the link, probably because the link began with "http://steam..." I think they need to fix that.

    I have contacted Steam Support and asked if the hacker was able to actually log in, and whether or not they have the ability to do something that can get my account VAC banned. Steam Support is slow to respond, so I'm still worried that I might get VAC banned in a week or so. Nothing I can do about that.​

    Provide Evidence:
    Here is the only place I was able to find a history of the event, because I didn't think to take a screenshot of the chat window before Steam kicked me out when the hacker attempted to log in.

    Oops. Forgot I'm running splits, and both monitors got captured. The chat window is on the right.​
