Spoiler: Show

STEAMSUPPORT|Jim: Hello this is Jim Flemming from Steam Support Team and we are wondering if you would like to join the thousands of people beta testing Episode 2. This is fully 100% free and confidential. We have thousands of CD Keys with Episode 2 betas on them waiting for you to test out. Upon you giving us positive feedback on glitches and other things you will receive a full and free version of the game. AND AS A BONUS give you one extra game of your liking. Contact me for more information. Thank you.

Jules: Yeah nice try jim Jules: okay how do i do this STEAMSUPPORT|Jim: To make it safe on both parties you can stay inside your account thus making it 100% safe on your part, then after 1 minute of download time you may change your password then making it safe for the user.

:lol: It's always fun to mess with people. Even if they are real (he's not). Like they say, never give out your username/password/cd key, they don't ask for it no matter what. If they really do *need* it, then they're fucked. It's always fun to mess with their heads though, like give them an email that actually sounds like it could be real. There's always people looking to scam anyone, make em work for it though, (well, work for nothing).

I was actually going to give him an old account that i made to see what people that didn't buy games have(demo's and such) so that looking for a cdkey thing was actually real, it was just a crappy account with nothing on it, but there's no way in hell im letting people know my real account details

Hah, those kind of people crack me up. We get them occasionally on IRC, but it's pretty easy to tell that they are just out to scam people.

Sometimes I wish they knew better... :cort:
