Rockboo, Red Team's Little Sister and Chester A. Bum are three j2ers who have been hit by this so far.

This virus trades your entire steam inventory apparently, the items seem to be going to an assmunch by the name of Alone.

A second one seems to be making rounds that mainly attempts to hijack accounts and in some cases take items in addition to this one. Two members of my highlander team were hit with that one. Seems anti-virus fixed that issue though, not sure about this one.

Wish there weren't as many scammers out there to prey on gamers.

I only ever message wonder woman after our passionate sex to tell her how great she was. I don't ever message the rest of you fucks. :awesome:
Steam is BLU_Collar, PSN is GGLinear, and my LoL account name is Somber Rites.

It's been years since I've spoken with any of you, but if you ever want to play or just talk, feel free to contact me.
