    To everyone who is on my friends list in Steam.

    Account name bmangamer

    Please remove me (or at least don't answer my statments) I have been hijacked and am waiting for Valve to change my information and password. I am pissed. One of my friends accounts was hijacked and I let me hijack me because I thought it was a friend.

    I will update here once I get it back, just to let you know. Watch out!

    To make me sound better, it was a highly trained hacker, and I could of not known either way. To be honest, I trusted a friends account, not listening to my instincts.

    I always live by DTA when it comes to online accounts.

    Valve was very fast this time, I am in full control of my account again.

    I will also live by that now!

    I forgot about that thread.

    I only posted this to warn the people on this forum who are on my list to watch out. If you would like you could remove it now.

    No need to remove anything just felt bad for you if it happened twice within such a short time :p
