“To get free Steam games, follow these 4 steps…”

Here’s a .tk URL claiming to offer up free Steam games located at


Lots of words

If you’re fond of seeing [Sic] pop up in a piece of writing then here comes Christmas (and possibly Halloween):

Even if they were able to give away a bunch of free games, it makes zero sense for them to be asking for your email login too.

Being asked to wait x amount of hours is also a huge red flag, as this is typically done to keep you away from the stolen account while the scammers set about changing your login and / or plundering your account.

As amateur hour as this particular example is, there are still people out there who will do anything for a freebie. Never give up your logins to random websites, and take the time to enable Steam Guard on your account if you haven’t done so already. A quick and easy “free gift” could prove to be very costly…
