On May 9th, the Singapore Police Force revealed a scam had been targeting Steam users. The scam reportedly forces victims to pay money to unlock their Steam accounts.
Scammers would reportedly approach customers using compromised Steam accounts to set them up and have them contact a fake platform administrator. If the victims did, they would be logged out of their Steam accounts and then forced to “make game-related transactions or purchases on third-party websites” in order to log back in.
“Victims would later realize that they had been scammed when they discovered that they were subsequently unable to log in to their Steam accounts and no refund was received,” the police said.
Police are reminding people to never give out their passwords and/or private information to anybody.
