I see alot of people looking to sell steam accounts here, as a warning to potential buyers it should be pointed out that you should not give the benefit of the doubt to people looking to sell steam accounts.

I'm not going to say much about account hacking here, but you should consider that this is also a possibility.

The reason steam account purchases aren't safe is simple, steam accounts aren't meant to be transferred. It's against the ToS to sell accounts and not supported by steam's support.

If someone tries to sell you an account, they have several ways to recover the account by contacting the support claiming they lost access. To name the ones I'm aware of, posting pictures of serial keys of physical products (activation keys on game boxes etc.), credit card information, email password recovery.

Long story short, buy spending money to "buy" a steam account you should be aware that it could be recovered by the original owner at any time and you should therefore be placing your full trust on them not doing so.

That is definitely true, but I am willing to take the risk as I want an account for a cheap price to play CS:GO with my friends.
