    Ah, scammers, you've got to love their tenacityToday, I received an email from noreply@steampowered.com offering me the chance to play Counter-Strike: Pro. Obviously, this is a scam, and the only hyperlink in the entire email goes to a wonderful con site, just waiting to steal Steam accounts. I doubt you guys would fall for such a thing, but let your less-knowledgeable friends and family know, just in case.

    Subject: Counter-Strike: Pro now available on Steam
    Dear Steam user,
    This is an automated message generated by Steam account administration to inform its clients that the free 30-days-trial period of Counter-Strike: Pro is now available.
    To activate the trial please follow the following steps,
    Visit the Steam homepage http://www.steamcommunity.com/.
    Log yourself in by using your Steam Username and Password. (If you are in a public place, make sure you are the only one that sees your account information)
    After logging in you will get an activation code, copy the code and move on to the next step. You will now have to choose between ATI & nVIDIA.
    After clicking on the ATI or nVIDIA logo, you will be asked for the activation code (So make sure you have copied the code)
    After following all these steps, your game is now activated on your Steam account.
    You can now go to the 'Games' tab on Steam and download your free CounterStrike: Pro 30-days-trial.

    I checked the original post. I'm 110% sure that they switched the scammer's mail and site with steam's. Without telling us. Pretty nasty, if you ask me.
