Phishing and fake website

I just got a message from: http://removed

He is a phisher trying to steal accounts.
Can I request that the site he mentioned is shut down and he is banned.

I doubt having the website shut down would be effective, it's most likely a .webs domain, so it'll take 20 seconds to recreate it. Also, it'd require significant work on Valve's part to get the right permissions to take down the websites.

Your best bet is to report the user using the report violation button located on the right of his profile. Just submit it as a user violation (and obviously fill in as many details as you can!)

Just use the "Report" button on their profile. Absolutely no reason for a post here.
