A Steam Card is a gift card that can be redeemed through Steam for the purchase of games, software, hardware, and any other items.
But, this doesn’t go the same for scammers.
Scammers ask for steam cards because it’s the fastest way to steal and launder money. It can’t be traced back to them. When they receive the steam card, they sell it off at a much lower price.
However, note that you should not send a steam card to anyone you don’t know online. It’s a scam. Check out the steps to take if you think you have been scammed.
If you believe you have been a victim of an online scam, we recommend you take the following actions:
- Report the scam to the social network/website where contact was first initiated.
- Report the incident to your local law enforcement.
- Contact your financial institution once you discover any fraudulent or suspicious activity on your accounts.
We advise victims to report scams to their financial security institutions for possible scam support.
