    Scam Report

    Report Type: DO NOT SUBMIT TO STEAMREP - Phishing or suspicious link
    Virtual item type involved: [CSGO] Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Items

    Accused profile: 76561198132574429

    Victim profile: 76561198048685953

    What happened? Description:
    I randomly got added because I have expensive skins in my inventory.
    They sent me this link, which poses as a gambling/skin website.
    Then it tries to hijack your Steam account, but thanks to Kaspersky, the hijack is blocked.

    This is a bot sending this link to potentially hundreds of others.
    Maybe SteamRep can prevent an account hijack or two.​

    Unfortunately, SteamRep does not accept reports dealing with hijacking/phishing/hacking -Due to current Investigative Policy
    http://forums.steamrep.com/threads/investigative-policy.140101/

    This includes anything to do with API key requests, wrong or misspelled URL's and sites requesting logins of any type in attempts to steal your credentials.
    These are phishing/hijacking attempts and are not to be reported to SteamRep!

    You can report the user to Valve instead
    In order to do that, you have to:
    1. Visit the accuseds profile
    2. Click MORE drop-down located at the top right of the page

    4. Select the violation, then describe it and provide the evidence
    5. Click SUBMIT REPORT
