  • Can lazy valve employers already plan to ban this scammer from workshop???

    It's been over a month that some guy is posting fake items in the workshop and stealing player's items. It always come with a name like FREE SKINS and asks to post GIVEAWAY in comments, then use their websites. The scammer posts a fake workshop item just to get visitor.

    How much longer do lazy valve developers need to stop this? If you need a phone number to play ranked, why not need it too for posting item? Why not wait for moderator's approval before releasing the workshop item? at least it will decrease the activity.

      @Tvidotto Sorry if it's harsh but that guy robbed a gazillion people and valve just watched, I think the title Lazy is on-topic here. Anyway.

      Check for the first page of workshop items. You'll see an item titled such as FREE SKIN. Click it. The scammer asks for you to post giveaway and then login to their site to receive your item. I haven't done this, So I'm not sure how they steal your items, but it probably includes giving permission or something. Judging by the people who comment "This website stole my items", we can be certain this is a scam website.

      Okay let's say it's not scam, it's genuine charity giving away 1000$ items for free. It should not be in workshop items. Workshop items are for items.

            Its viruses, a case of you better reinstall windows and not install every things what you will found in internet. Also your pc will work better if you reinstall windows.
            Or try scan your pc with special utility for example (spyhunter) but i don't think its will help you. Just reinstall windows.

            This skins in every browser what you opening?

                Yes its must virus in browser. How you can explane that i don't have it in my steam page? My friend long time ago got almost same issue, and this reclam was in old client dota also. And its apper in every browser what he open, and steam.

                Maybe in browser installed some skins expansion for browser with free skins or something like this. And all ur devices using this browser.

                  @BEST_ Ya man I'm sure there's a virus installed on all of my devices on every platform. Seems like you didn't read what I wrote.

                  And also if you check the workshop items regularly, you can see them too.

                  Don't believe me? Let me add you on steam to message you the item's link on workshop as soon as they show up.

                      Not everyone has the same front page on Steam. Also these get removed/bumped out of the front page quite quickly. I see these as well, sometimes all 3 slots are taken by the "Free Skins" spam, sometimes none. Not much can be done about this, I believe.

                            @Toyoka A lot can be done about this, simply. Here's some:

                            1- Only users with verified phone number can post on workshop. This should reduce the drastically.
                            2- You should have a specific steam level to post an item.
                            3- You are required to be registered for at least X days. This will block new accounts created every day just to post items.
                            4- Valve can add a real moderator to it. One that doesn't sleep 24/7.

                            and so on.
