    Don't do any other trades until you read this and follow the steps to secure your Steam account:


    Please note that scammers also defaced your Steam profile with the fake "Steam warning".

    Ignore it and do NOT "move all of your tradable items to a different steam account" as you'd lose them instead.

    Hello, with the given description you have given, your account is most likely compromised. Please do the following to regain control of your account:

    1. Change password immediately and change it anywhere else you have the same password set. The scammer will try to log into your email with it when he loses access.

    2. De-authorize all other devices here: https://store.steampowered.com/twofactor/manage

    3. Revoke any API keys set. Their only use, if you don't know what it is, is keeping control of your account. https://steamcommunity.com/dev/apikey

    Once you have done so, please reply here so that we can continue with the report.
