    What happened? Description:
    My friend on steam contacted me after him being offline from Garry's mod in a long time, but my friend got hijacked and now is trying to pull off a scam.

    I want to put a caution tag on him until he can regain his account back, and i have trolled with the scammers that have hijacked his account.

    Please quickly put the tag, before more of my friends get hijacked.
    The pictures should explain everything.

    And also, the hijackers have edited his profile.​

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