    Scam Report

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

    Accused profile: 76561198401261713

    Victim profile: 76561197968633696

    What happened? Description:
    Scammer added me and asked to "check my item" on Fake Steam Login website skinsblaze.com

    The website shows very convincing Steam Login with green Valve logo and Steam URL, the only problem is that it is not a real browser window but constructed with HTML in-page.

    I knew this was a scam from the very beginning but when I saw that fake "popup" I thought at first about URL concealment (e.g. //username:p[email protected]). Clever, I have to admit.

    The second part of the scam, as you most likely know, described here:

    https://marketplace.tf/blog/posts/YHLZOB

    Provide Evidence:
    The 1st screen shows Steam Profile and Chat window.​

    Unfortunately, SteamRep does not accept reports dealing with hijacking/phishing/hacking -Due to current Investigative Policy

    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!
