    I got a message from 2 friends on Steam chat, that will try and divert You to an external site *don't click on it* and definitely don't go to the external site, it will try and steal Your (Game) inventory and then spam others on Your Steam Friends list, it will look like this

    Blanked: You will exchange this thing?

    and then give You an URL, ignore it.
