Dear member,

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GetGames is back. For those who aren't informed, our server was hacked early August and everything got deleted, including our backups. We have since moved to a new host and we are backing up our database in a cloud service to prevent the data wipeout from occurring again. Please visit our steam page for more details.:

Get Free Game

All this is, is a scam.

First I read this mail, I noticed "Account Steam" was not sounding too well.

Second, this link is totally a scam, the domain does NOT end at "steampowered.com"

Third, IT'S SO NOTICEABLE to see it's scamming at full throttle, asking for E-mail Address and E-mail Password.

PLEASE Steam Support, REPORT to every STEAM user of this issue.

Was the sender actually @steampowered.com ? That can be faked.

And remove the link.

You should take out that free game link so people dont click it.

And to everyone else, if you got an email you think is fake, just scroll over all the links with your mouse, then look in the bottom left corner of your browser for the actual place it takes you.

Say if the link says "Steampowered.com", but when you scroll over it and it says "Steam.powered.blah.lolhax.com" chances are its a fake email trying to log ur keez. So dont click it.

Edit: and even if you get an email, dont click the links. Just type it into your browser. That way you are guaranteed to not ever get hacked! yay

You need to find out what Steam game site you have your email address registered to and remove it. You should not have the email address registered to your Steam account posted anywhere, ever.

EDIT; I haven't made it, I already took notice it was scam.

But @steampowered.com, wow...

I don't, but I HAD a Steam account registered at this email, don't own it anymore. Gave to my sister, but receiving steam emails to this email... whoa.

This. Check the email's full headers. The real domain it was sent from will often appear there in scams like these.

Yes, I know @Steampowered.com can be faked, but check the image I posted.

That's not the full header. Something like this is a full email header.

I can't tell from that screenshot what email program or host you're using...Hotmail? Outlook? Either way it should have an option to display full email headers lurking around somewhere.

None of those links have https, meaning they're all unsecured and fake.

Beaten like a red headed step child to the header thing, but you might wanna remove your e-mail address from there (8th from the bottom)

Also for all intents and purposes, that's supposed to be a genuine smiley, not a "derp" face.
