Free steam gifts?

Some of my friends got gifts from "Steam" and I was told if you play long enough on steam they start giving out gifts. Is this true?

Be careful when accepting gifts from strangers. If the card is seen as been stolen or used fraudulently, then your account will be locked for a bit. Only accept games from people you know.

No, these people receive these gifts all from the same bot/person and it always says from "Steam".

I don't think that person is giving you a good clean copy. Like Freyar said, if you don't know that person I wouldn't accept.

Well, my friends say they all received these gifts from the same person all entitled "steam". I don't know and I don't quite believe them either.

Either they're telling you a fairy tale, or someone claiming to be a Steam rep is sending them a game from a stollen CC possibly.

Only accept games from people you know. If you have to post a question about the person, you obviously don't know him or her well enough.

Yeah probably lying,heres what they said:

If your on steam long enough, you get random free suff. just last week i got a $10.00 game free. however, if you do not install your gift within the given amount of time, it goes away forever, and cannot be redeemed.

There is your answer, I hope you leaned something.

actually, getting these games is quite common, quite often.

Screwing with me aren't they.
