i was just victim to a csgo skin hijacking.
lost $100+ worth of skins
am i fucked or is it possible to get them back?
has this happened to anyone here?
my initial investment was 30$ on cases and skins and was luck enough to get some items with decent value. from then on i traded, sold and bought skins from the market for profit.
I've never done a trade on steam before but can you not look at what the other person is offering up and you can only blindly accept hoping that the other person upholds their side of the trade?
i know im a fucking idiot but i get offers for my knife all the time and this really didnt seem unusual to me. whats done is done, now is it possible to get them back?
give me some of your skins
i will track the dna on them to find your other skins and get them back for you
1/2 ok guys heres my appeal
hello steam support employee
today i experienced a series of unfortunate events. ill try and keep this concise and to the point. to put it simply, i was subject to a hijacking. the culprit took 18 items from my inventory, including my prize possession Huntsman Knife | Boreal Forest valued at over 100$ which he removed from the market place. He then transferred these 18 items to his own account via trade without my consent.
please observe the image 'hacked'
at approximately 9am this morning i received multiple messages from the user Bingo offering me an in-game item (cs:go knife) along with a link to a supposed screenshot of said knife. naturally i opened the link, i receive many offers regarding my
Huntsman Knife | Boreal Forest. i assumed something was fishy when no screenshot appeared. first thing i did was check my Huntsman listing that i posted last night
observe image 'hacked1'
sure enough it was removed and placed in my inventory. shortly after, the good majority of my items were no longer in my inventory including the Huntsman. At this point i knew i was subject to a hijacking and started to gather as much evidence as possible.
observe images 'hacked 2' and 'hacked 4'
as you can see my items were traded for nothing to the user 'rizzla'. Rizzla is not the user , Bingo, that sent me the original message in 'hacked 1'. however Bingo states that has access to multiple accounts.
Observe images 'hacked3' 'hacked 5' and 'hacked 6'
i monitored rizzlas inventory throughout the day and noticed that he gained quite a bit of items over time. i believe he either has my items listed are on the market, has already sold them or has traded them to another account.
to be clear, i would never put forth such a ridiculous offer nor did i would i give consent to it. and i did not give consent to this trade. a users besides myself accessed my account , without my consent, then proceed to hijack my items.
unemployed, clearly beta, teenage who games all day fueled by mt dew
>mfw steam support answer is on the scale of 'deal with it nerd'
ideally, id like to have my items returned to my inventory. i would be greatly pleased if they were. i would also understand if it is not possible but would require an explanation as to why not. im both surprised and disappointed that something like this can occur on Steam. here are some questions i have.
is what they did here legal?
can they be brought to justice?
what can i do to prevent this in the future?
is there any kind of reimbursement i can receive for my loss?
do you have any questions for me or require further information?
regardless of the outcome of my items, id like the culprits to be brought to justice. not only for my sake but also for the sake of possible future targets. i would not wish this upon anyone.
what do you think?
Fucking retarded. Steam won't give skins back to you because they don't sympathise with retarded niggers. I have russians add me everyday, you know what I don't do? Click their fucking links retard.
>someone gained access to my account
>not having 2 step verification on every single account you have anywhere involving your money or private files/emails
steam makes you confirm if the link is legit and informs you if it isnt an official steam site
you have to sign in with your info on the fake steam website
your antivirus should prevent you from going into the link
if you fall for this you are probably one of the dumbest fuckers on the planet
have you not filed a steam support ticket yet?
cause if you havent i suggest you quit making posts here and get on that asap
thats about all you can do
also that guy was so obviously a scammer i have no idea how you fell for that shit
>being a blithering fucking retard
Back to steam discussions with you, a place somehow far more retarded than this shithole.
Nah these hijacks work a bit differently
There is a file which bypasses steam guard, it exists on your pc and when you try to sign in on the phisher site it tells you to upload it
When you do, steam thinks you're singing in at the hackers pc while obviously you're not
Source: I own one, I'm not the one who took your skins though
i simply cannot wait any longer
what if i told you that all of this occurred last month and iv already submitted a steam ticket and i already got my skins back just to get a good reaction out of you pessimist faggots?
>This happened a month ago! Don't you all feel stupid for calling me stupid now?
No, because you're a fucking retard for having it happen at any point in your life. A month ago, an hour ago, it doesn't change that you're a fucking idiot.
i would have to agree with you there, in reality im extremely lucky to have gotten my items back
>entire thread is everyone shitting on you for being a dipshit
>"b-b-b-but this happened a month ago, therefore you've been trolled ;^)
Literally what? I'd understand if anyone had said a 'pessimistic' thing about Steam and their support, but this entire thread was just everyone shitting on you personally. Nothing you've said has changed any of these responses or made them invalid.
When I was 10 years old I wrote better than this.
im just playing guys i didnt mean to troll you
i really did get scammed and i just barely sent in my steam support ticket
>I trolled all of you by making you totally shit all over me for being a dumbass! HAHA! Got you, suckers. :^) heh.
>I just gave all my skins away for free because I'm a retarded faggot
>regardless of the outcome of my items, id like the culprits to be brought to justice. not only for my sake but also for the sake of possible future targets. i would not wish this upon anyone.
>censoring the fucking eyes of your profile
You have to be an underage BR to give a shit about skins and not just sell them to autists as soon as they drop. Skinfags are always shit at the game too, I'd fuck all your holes at CS:GO.
