Steam Message

Has anyone ever encountered a message that pops up reading: "Hello, Steam Automated Support has detected multiple ip usage on this steam account. This account is in danger of being shut down unless immediate actions are taken.For verification and full control over this account please state your Account Name/Password. Thank you, and for any questions please refer to steampowered.com" I have no idea why I received this message, anyone have any ideas?
 
Valve will NEVER ask you for your password. Where did you get this message because it sounds like someone is trying to scam you out of your account.
 
Yeah, I entered my info without even thinking about it even though the message "STEAM will NEVER ask for you account information" was staring me in the face. Anyway, I filed a question on the STEAM Support site and am awaiting an e-mail. Thanks for the advice that I was too stupid to remember in the first place guys.
 
Some generic/official name like 'Automated Verifiy' (I remember that verify was spelled wrong for some odd reason) first requested a friend add, so I accepted without thinking about it, then it displayed that message and it looked truly automated because it kept sending messages threatening that my account would be terminated in 24 hours. So yeah...
 
i got one of those 2 weeks ago but i also remeber that steam would never ask u about account info i have heard about the scams on steams change password to something reall hard and delete the freind!!! asap
 
Ouch dude, This is what you do (something similar has happened to me, but it was a keylogger not a message)

Change your password as soon as possible, then register a new e-mail account, set the steam to that email account and you'll be fine.

Good luck with this, bud, I hope for the best!

YES this is true! that sounds like a scam to me too. I'm pretty sure it is, I remember reading about e-mails going around to people asking them the same thing to "verify" acct. details and such. Don't respond to these at any time.
 
Well, I've given up on STEAM's support system and decided to just make a new account. Not much of a big deal for me since I only had purchased DoD:S and CS:S. I learned a big lesson from this experience and hope other members of eGO can learn from my mistake.
 
Why? Did they actually breach your account? Just do what a few people have already told you to do: change your password and email. Not hard to do, and free.
 
Yeah, they already got into my account and changed my password and designated e-mail and all that good stuff, so I have absolutely no access to my old account.
 
Eh, well that's too bad. But, I mean, it's not like Valve/Steam doesn't provide enough warning about this type of thing, let alone all of the warnings from other organizations on the internet...
