requiem. Posted May 31, 2018 Share Posted May 31, 2018 I'm a newer Steam user, I have used Steam for almost two years. I've gathered a considerable number of Steam friends, but to them I've always sent the friend invite. Recently, I have gotten several friend requests from these "girl" accounts. They have a cringey Instagram-style profile pic of some girl and they only own one or two free games. Their profile description always reads the same thing, it's something like: "Hi! I am little cute girl Add me to play games, because I need friends". I added one, but they just sat on my friends list. I later blocked them. I got three more requests after that; I blocked every single one. More recently, I have gotten other friend requests from people that claim they play Team Fortress 2 (the game I play most often). Again, they only sit on my friends list. But yesterday, one whose request I accepted more recently said in the chat: Them: Hello Me: Hi Them: Hey Them: I have a question Me: What Me (30 min later): What's your question? As of now they still have not responded. I'm not sure what this could be. Regarding the fake "girl" profiles, I did some research and found it happens very often across Steam that some male players feel the need to pretend they are female. I'm wondering if this is the case or they are scammers. As for the other profiles, I am leaving them on my Friends list for now. Profile links: Girl profile #1 "Alla": https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198009201541 Girl profile #2 "Anna-Diana" (they changed their name; currently their name is "Accept"): https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198050167076 Girl profile #3 "Alexa Twitter": https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198075937444 Girl profile #4 "Rana Twitch": https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198034650248 Unrelated user; tried to ask for many of my expensive TF2 items, after sending him a request for two I was willing to trade, he ignored it "TANDY": https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198066571888 Unrelated user who looked like a scammer (I don't play CS:GO) "FREE 20$ FOR OPEN CASES": https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198072616473 TF2 player #1 "Bro and Bro": https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198822465442 TF2 player #2 "Live without worries" https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198112294635 This player's description is strange: I love playing games with my new friends I love to exchange and give presents to my friends My favorite game is Team Fortres 2 I will be very glad if you accept my friendship and I will be glad to communicate with you TF2 player #3 "qqcheefze .": https://steamcommunity.com/id/h33cheef TF2 player #4 "Regular" (this was the "question" guy): https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198372394656 TF2 player #5 "witcher" : https://steamcommunity.com/id/BestSlimShady Phew, that was a lot to write down. Please reply as to what you think this is, it would be greatly appreciated! If you have had a similar experience, write that down too. Thanks! UPDATE: I have removed every single one of those profiles. However, I haven't blocked them, but I haven't heard from them since. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
