PM the link to a mod or admin.

You might also want to remove the picture from your post.

Simply report the user from his community profile using the "Report a violation" link.

I reported that phishing link to various antiphishing entities, so it should get flagged soon.

Good lord...
Insert Steam Username.
Insert Steam Password.
Insert Email.
Insert Email Password.

It only lacks asking for the Credit Card, the CvC and the car's keys...
(In the end it's just a lame community deface with a stupid Js to send the credentials somewhere...)
I wonder how many people have fallen on that.

Edit: it seems FF already shows the site as a phishing domain.

This made me LOL

Ok, did anybody else notice the "I like ponies" guy on this?

Other than that randomness, Thank you for discovering this *REALLY* obvious phishing scam. I feel sorry for anybody who fell for it...

You're welcome

I report all scammers I come across, I'm sure for every one I report, there's probably 10 more. Someone's gotta do it though.
