Steam Identity Phishing

The user - http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198019647927/ keeps sending everyone in a community I am a member of links to phishing sites hidden with a [color="#FF66FF"]♥[/color][color="#FF66FF"]♥[/color][color="#FF66FF"]♥[/color][color="#FF66FF"]♥[/color] domain. They are blatantly obvious as they contain the old orange steam bar and ads from the free hosting site on the bottom. I reported both sites to the free hoster, which resulted in the first one being taken down. The second one is currently still up at the time of writing. I reported the user though his steam community profile page, but would like to post a thread here also to alert the community to this growing problem, as this is not the first user that has sent out phishing pages.

The two [color="#FF66FF"]♥[/color][color="#FF66FF"]♥[/color][color="#FF66FF"]♥[/color][color="#FF66FF"]♥[/color] links:


Everything on the page except the username and password fields redirect to the legit steamcommunity website.

Here is a picture of the message:


Pictures of the site (second shows free ads):

Thankfully, your tokelau links no longer work (never good to post phishing links on a forum), but it would be better if you send such information directly to a mod via pm...

I just made the account to post this figuring it would be better if everybody knows.
