    Obviously a scam but I wanted to see how good it was. I followed the link to this website. Very nicely done, almost an exact replica of steam.

    you can download a bunch of games, easily and break the activation/security, then torrent the games.

    easiest way to pirate a game. then you can sell the games for $ instead of $$... really rampant in other parts of the world. In the states its a ton harder.

    But when I was in arabia, you were crazy to buy a game non pirated... these guys would wander around selling them everywhere for what was basically $5.

    Is there a risk even visiting websites like that :confused:. I read a few who said they just visited certain website and had their account stolen.

    If you use swiss cheese for security, possibly. There could be an exploit for your specific browser to execute some code..

    Or you could use linux/OSX and laugh at the attempt to install a trojan.

    Yeah, that was one of the things that surprised me. It links you to steam if you click on any of the links.
