    Dude it could be that you got hacked, it has happend to me once.

    I had to email Steam and have them reset my accounts password, you have to give them proof that its your account though.

    Yeah same shit happen to me, you have been hacked or password stolen.

    Hurry up and alert them, you wll have to provide them with proof of purchase with either a picture proof of a serial key or the credit card number that you used to posably purchase a steam game.

    If you alert them and provide the proof the way they ask, you should have no problame and get you account back.

    Good Luck Man. :toast:

    Yup, shitty steam gets hacked all the time. It's my only gripe with them, but a big one. You have to contact them, and send pictures. Is that f'd up or what?:shadedshu

    steam needs to fix the vulnerabilities, or there will be a lot of angry customers :(
