I couldn't login. I knew this very early. I even noticed that I got notification email that my password has been changed. The IP from Canada...that didn't ring my bell. Christen is from the US.
I've self-locked my account.
I can't do anything else until Steam Support takes over.
how the hell did they change your password? - did you give them account credentials? - did you download anything? - or sign in via steam api on a third party site?
First they told me to sign out. Everywhere, browser, client. They wanted me to lose access to my account.
Then they asked me to remove my authenticator.
They said "A verification code was sent to 50". That was the last two digits of my phone. They didn't know the full number. I think that's a verification code to remove the authenticator.
They also didn't know my full email address: "l_**@y**.c". But both the last numbers and partial address are visible if you gain access to my account. They also asked verification code sent to my email. Needs both to remove.
They asked my age and owner of my payment method.
"This account are temporary ban right now since we detect that your old id in this account are ban right now and we need a new one". Their grammar wasn't even correct, but maybe it's online chat.
"Inorder to get a new purchase id is to buy steam wallet gift card code worth of 50$ but don't worry this is refunded after the verification process okay". First they asked $50.
Then they asked for more after I sent the first code: "We received only 36% inorder to get a new purchase id is to reach 100%
So can you please try to buy again".
And again and again.
