    now even if it wan't obvious that they were trying to get me to log onto a dodgy site in order to steal my login details, what he essentially asked me was, the site owner locked him out of taking a cut of raffles from this site, he has access to the admin panel and would make me the winner of the raffle and then I give him 50% of the profit. this is fraud, plain and simple and its something that I would never agree to.

    Best to delete/ignore the user - the site is most likely phishing related.
    I suggest to you and others to leave a note on your profile for people to comment as to why they are adding you - this will help filter this particular issue or situation in the future.
    Works 100% for me.. no comment no add/accept.

    (my steam profile has been updated)

    its just the morality of some people that baffles me in this scenario, they try to lure me into a site so that they can steal my account details/items etc. which is illegal, by proposing that I help them with stealing money/items from a raffle site which is, in itself illegal.

    what is wrong with people...

    They're playing into your greed, hoping that you'll participate for a quick buck, and then be too ashamed to say anything once they scam you.
