    Second Person who sends me a link to go to hxxp://www.steampowerednvidia.t35.com link. Claiming I can get free games. it was two different people not on my friends list trying to get me to login my steam information there.

    I just thought with the New steam interface that maybe something new is lurking about and wanted to warn yall to NOT TYPE YOUR INFORMATION in those links.

    Similer to this but diff. http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1122049

    Usually anything that wants you to put in your personally identifying information for free goods is a scam. It would be ill advised to ever think otherwise ;)

    I'm entertaining myself by giving him six empty accounts. This is quite fun.

    I just got one from a spammer also about free Steam games from Nvida, the site ended in ".tk" so watch out for that too.

    Sent an abuse report for this one too. Should be down in a day or two. T35 is usually very fast at taking down sites.

    I'm not defending my stupidity but for the benefit of those who have not seen this, the link takes you to a page that looks like steam and all the links work on the real steam site. They have taken most of the steam site and added a phishing page on top.

    I've been having a long day.....

    I actually got a random message of the same thing today, by someone not on my buddy list. Saw the link he sent and just ignored it as usual. Didn't realize it was part of a mass spam thing though...

  19. I have never used this "friends" thing. Think it's because I'm paranoid, everyone wants to get me..

    Hey... Considering they have given away Portal for Free officially and the Whole Pac Steam thing I could see why some people would want to believe this things are true.
