    Default How NOT to steal Account info

    Haha, ok so I saw this on Bit-tech and thought everyone here would laugh. Apparently some kid tried to phish (use social engineering to get a person information) for some guys Steam account inforation by pretending to be from Valve. Well, the guy turned it around on the kid and completely owned him. Read for yourself.

    Greg_ValveOLS says:

    Greg_ValveOLS says:

    br0kenrabbit says:
    On MSN?

    Greg_ValveOLS says:
    yes

    br0kenrabbit says:
    Why?

    Greg_ValveOLS says:
    we logged multiple ips from your account and ned to verifi your information

    br0kenrabbit says:
    My information?

    Greg_ValveOLS says:
    we believe someone may have stolen your account mmmm you havent shared youre account infomation with anyone have you?

    br0kenrabbit says:
    No. I don't even have it written down.

    Greg_ValveOLS says:
    hmmm maybe a keylogger on you r PC then maybe you need a format?

    br0kenrabbit says:
    Well...

    Greg_ValveOLS says:
    if you can verify your account information to me i can insure that only your ip have access to it Its a new security feature were trying because this happens so muchlogin names and passwords aint safe anymroe You know. L

    br0kenrabbit says:
    Well

    Greg_ValveOLS says:
    dont worry this connect it secure

    br0kenrabbit says:
    Can I be honest with you, Greg?

    Greg_ValveOLS says:
    k

    br0kenrabbit says:
    Look, I don't know how you go this MSN account name, don't really care, either.

    br0kenrabbit says:
    Unlike you, I DO work for Valve. Trace my ip and you'll see.

    Greg_ValveOLS says:
    huh?

    Greg_ValveOLS says:
    bs

    br0kenrabbit says:
    Trace it.

    Greg_ValveOLS says:
    how

    br0kenrabbit says:
    Start/run/cmd type Tracert and then my IP address and hit enter.

    Greg_ValveOLS says:
    oh k

    br0kenrabbit says:
    As an employee, I know that Valve employees will NEVER contact users over MSN. I also know a valve employee will NEVER ask a user for his/her username and password.

    br0kenrabbit says:
    I'm putting a temporary hold on your Steam account.

    Greg_ValveOLS says:
    why?

    br0kenrabbit says:
    Have you read the ToS?

    Greg_ValveOLS says:
    Tod?

    Greg_ValveOLS says:
    tos

    br0kenrabbit says:
    terms of service

    Greg_ValveOLS says:
    were?

    br0kenrabbit says:
    Greg, this is a serious infraction against the Tos. You are at risk of losing your account.

    Greg_ValveOLS says:
    why

    br0kenrabbit says:
    I just told you why

    Greg_ValveOLS says:


    br0kenrabbit says:
    I need some information from you if you want me to unlock you account. I'm going to write you up but I will only suspend you account for three days, since this is your first infraction, okay?

    Greg_ValveOLS says:
    k

    br0kenrabbit says:
    First, what is the name the account is registered to. Not the user name, the persons real name who created the account. This is for verification purposes.

    Greg_ValveOLS says:
    xxxxx xxxxxxx

    br0kenrabbit says:
    Is this you?

    Greg_ValveOLS says:
    ya

    br0kenrabbit says:
    Are you the only user of this account?

    Greg_ValveOLS says:
    ya

    br0kenrabbit says:
    Okay, and what is the username

    Greg_ValveOLS says:
    xxxxxxxx

    br0kenrabbit says:

    Greg_ValveOLS says:

    Greg_ValveOLS says:

    Greg_ValveOLS says:

    Greg_ValveOLS says:

    br0kenrabbit says:

    People are stupid; given proper motivation, almost anyone will believe almost anything. Because people are stupid, they will believe a lie because they want to believe it's true, or because they are afraid it might be true. People’s heads are full of knowledge, facts, and beliefs, and most of it is false, yet they think it all true. People are stupid; they can only rarely tell the difference between a lie and the truth, and yet they are confident they can, and so are all the easier to fool.
