Hey guys, i got a friend invite from Ninjachu, a fellow turbo. He sent me a fake steam forum link, with n’s instead of m’s in community and told me to log in, i spotted this and called him out on it. he immediately unfriended me. He asked: “Have you seen that thing about you on the forums?”
BEWARE and Ninjachu, CHANGE YOUR PASSWORD
Edit: Apparently it is a person who just mimics him, not actually ninja’s account.

Well I just ran into this guy just now. Whta it looked like was someone made an account identical to Ninjachu (changing to the same name and using the same profile pic.) doesn’t look like he hacked Ninjachu’s account but just mimicked it. But maybe thank about changeing your password anywayJune 16, 2012 at 12:30 am #37641
FYI http://steamcommunity.com/id/3tgdsasf2rfsdegh/ is the account that is scamming, and has appeard to move on from ninjachu, might aswell file an abuse report i guess,
P.S. LET ME SLEEP!
EDIT: WAIT>! HE IGNORED ME!!!! that is it, sir you have made an enemy this day, attempt to breach my account is one thing
but for serial?

Or something else that’s original -_-June 16, 2012 at 11:28 am #37703
The guy does not impersonate certain people, he just takes someone from the friend list of the victim and renames himself to it.
To check whether it’s really your friend, just click on the arrow and go to the profile. You can see the names he used in the past.June 17, 2012 at 6:09 am #37812

Yeah, I had two chat requests from Nemesis9173 and from Hi!. Declined them both, obviously.June 27, 2012 at 4:45 pm #39713
Dark and Nemesis are fine. they posted on the turbo forum about the scamming :)
as long as you guys don’t click the link you wont be in troubleJune 27, 2012 at 4:48 pm #39715
What happens if you click the link?
Does nothing happen? Is it a fake steam page where it tricks you in sending the password?June 27, 2012 at 4:53 pm #39719
gukingofheart: What happens if you click the link?
It’s an ongoing phishing scam; so they get your info and then can use your account to continue to scam others. It’s good practice to be careful clicking links anyway, even from friends, so I’d say that esp right now if you get something like that even from someone you know, contact them another way before clicking to verify it’s legit from them.
