    This thread is about scammers that you talk to in Steam chat that try to steal your account with fake websites, not Team Fortress 2 trading. :doh:

    Ooh, I remember the time I got this, courtesy of a so-called "friend"...

    (It's translated from Russian.)

    The Steam Administration Service would like to inform you that your account has received a complaint. You are suspected of using cheats and other programs. In order to avoid possible banning, the Administration Service steam invites you to the data on its account to verify your profile for cheats. Otherwise, the steam-account will be banned . We guarantee you fully protect your data. With respect, the administration of Steam.

    I wanted to scam a scammer, but they tend to add you, send the link and then leave.

    Edited:

    Well, not really scam, but more like twist the conversation and fool him.

    Before I could capture on screen what I did not think I would encounter, VAC actually eliminated the culprit.

    Rather then use Steam's chat log, this scammer has the nerve to come into Garrys Mod, in a fail attempt to sucker punch multiple people. While the scam was not so much to get people to cough real money, it was like this, hllsn's 30,000 GMR giveaway, only 250 a ticket, the more tickets you buy, the better chances you have at winning! The funniest part of this was, it turned out he was an illegal! (not because of that scam attempt, but illegal because he somehow got online in GM without a valid Steam account)

    So while this may originally be about chat logs, when these guys go in game, they figure its easier to target more people at once.

    I haven't had any phishers recently, but I did get some guys that wanted me to join their clan, but to join their clan I had to download their software and run it.

    Just kept telling them that I ran the software and nothing happened and after a while told them to fuck off.

    To find out, we must enter the mind of a phisher...

    'Hah! I have stolen an account id and password!'
    (Tries to log in)
    'DAMN YOUR STEAM GUARD D:'

    In other words, they still will without realizing they can't log in.

    Don't do it. It only requires a screenshot and the user id for steam support to disable your account.

    I managed to prank someone, and man was his reaction great. I was never going to steal or ask for any credentials though. I took up the name "Blackberry" and contacted a gullible friend of mine as a valve employee, and informed him he was about to be VAC banned for hacking.

    This is from a chatlog I saved, but I replaced the names and saved it previously

    Me: Hello sir
    Him: hi
    Me: I have been informed by a friend of yours, "Cjmax" that you were using cheats on Counter Strike: Source?
    Him: what
    Him: who are you
    Him: no i didnt
    Me: I am Bryan Rena, an employee at Valve Software, and my job is to administrate and issue VAC bans.
    Him: this is a joke
    Me: This is no joke. We have several people telling me that you did in fact use cheats. Unfortunately, I am going to have to issue a permanent VAC ban regarding the issue.
    Him: wait
    Him: please dont ban me
    Him: I didnt do it I promise
    (he really didnt do anything wrong)
    Me: One second, let me confirm it was you.
    Him: okay
    Him: I know its not me tho
    Him: hello?
    Him: Do you do voice chat?
    Me: It is Valve protocol that we don't engage a customer regarding business with voice chat, sorry.\
    Him: ok
    Me: So I have gathered a total of 4 reports and many images with you as the perpetrator.
    Him: what I didnt do anything please dont do this
    Me: The definition of a VAC banishment: This is used to keep unworthy players who utilize cheats to gain points away from the non cheating community. One banned from VAC servers will never be able to join a VAC server again, considering the ban is permanent and cannot be undone.
    Him: please please please omg im fucking begging you do not do this I promise I never ever did anything wrong i dont want to lose all my games i payed for pleaseee
    Me has issued a VAC ban at 12:01:24 on Dec.12.10. to user STEAM:18118:18982783 (Him) for 99999999 days. Ban will be undone [NULL]
    Him: whyyyy come on son of a bitch im going to sue you
    Me: just kidding its Cjmax
    Him: no
    Me: yep
    Him: you fucking fuckface god dammit shit
    Me: rofl
    Him is now offline.

    I get a lot of random people from groups I'm in sending me chat requests with terrible phish links in them.
    I tell them they're morons and report them.


    This probably doesn't fall under "scammer chatlogs" but it's sort of funny and this is probably the best place to put it.

    A guy added me yesterday who was completely convinced that I was musicmanmitchel (the dumb kid from this video) because I jokingly changed my name to "S TEAM OWNER SON" (one of his stupider aliases). He tried to start a voice chat, but since I don't have a mic (and i'm not 10) I couldn't indulge his creepy desire to hear a little boy talk to him over Steam.
    Never tell your password to anyone.
    Call from Nickster2230 started.
    Call with Nickster2230 ended.
    Merried Seinor Comic: uh no
    Merried Seinor Comic: what'd you add me for?
    Nickster2230: I've seen what you've done...
    Nickster2230: I likez up :3
    Merried Seinor Comic: i've done plenty of things, be more specific
    Nickster2230: I know who you are
    Merried Seinor Comic: Oh? And who am I?
    Nickster2230: S TEAM OWNER
    Merried Seinor Comic: yes i'm secretly gabe
    Merried Seinor Comic: don't tell anyone
    Merried Seinor Comic: (no, i'm not the "i'm gonna tell garry" kid, i changed my name to that to mock him)
    Nickster2230: I don't beleive you. Voice. Now.
    Merried Seinor Comic: I don't have a mic. And anyway, there's plenty of evidence that I'm not musicmanmitchel.
    Nickster2230: Lies
