Scam, more than likely linking to a malicious website to ploy a way to hijack your account/info.

As if Valve would rely on an advertisement riddled freehoster that rents subdomains of their main domain t35.com. Common sense is really a lost art.

OF COURSE is fake.

Come on, if some random stranger on the street came to you and said: "Ey! Come to my place I have free games for you"... did you believe him?


So then. Apply the same common sense on the internet.
