If you've been directed to this page, your account is "hijacked".

By highjacked we mean the following:

  • You currently have an unauthorized bot / user on your account.
  • The said bot logged into your steam account can intercept any incoming trades ( including RustyPot deposit trades ).
  • The "bot" cancels trades coming in and instantly creates a new exchange where the affected skins get rerouted to the scammer's bot's inventory.
  • Both trades look the same, they both have the same trade message, profile picture and name. Unfortunately, one is fake resulting in you losing your skins.

How did this happen?

Most of the hijiacks happen via a phishing site very similar looking to a legitimate site. Once you go to the website, you meet a steam login page that steals your credentials.

But I have steam guard enabled?

That's where the hijacked part comes into play. When you logged into a phishing website, you gave them the necessary 2fa code to login to your account. Instantly on their end a bot is signed in.

But I confirmed it on my phone?

When you confirmed the trade on your phone, that you thought was a RustyPot deposit trade. You actually were confirming the very similar looking trade created by the scammer.
