It sounds pretty ridiculous that someone could steal your account by entering in a Steam code. I'm sure there's some sort of code verification between Steam and the developer/publishers. It sounds pretty impossible and kind of doubt that it is possible. The person could either just be making it up or hiding the fact that they got fooled into giving someone their account information.
The question is, what can you get by hijacking a steam account? Some information is about all, none of which would lead to anything more than having to cancel a credit card, not worth it, especially for a large scale event like this that would cost more money than could be gained.
If someone wants to do that they send targeted phishing emails. No, this is legit, just limited to the UK only, which really sucks. Anyone have a way around this yet?
