Meh, if I have to I will buy the games again. I am not upset about it. Just gotta wait and see what happens. I think they are looking for Left 4 Dead and TF2 accounts. The only thing that sucks is getting the achievements back.

Well the name he used was condemned who is a Steam friend of mine, so i guess I don't know who it was. Like I said I thought it was a friend, but he already had been hacked. At least it won't happen again.

For future reference, before you enter login information, check for a couple things:

1. The name before the suffix in the address must match your site. (ie bla.ebay.com is good, ebay.bla.com is BAD)

2. Look for verified sites and secure connections (ie https:// in the beginning).

3. When in doubt, ENTER YOUR OWN URL (ie instead of using his, go to ebay.com or w/e site you are going to).
it was http....
I just deleted it so it doesnt highlight as a link

You're not going to have to buy them again man, they will reinstate your account. The only real risk is VAC banned stuff...
