Valve Has Added Warnings To Steam About Scam Items

According to this reddit thread, Valve is taking steps to keep users from being scammed and offering replacement items for people that have already fallen victim to scammers.

We also started requiring approval for app name changes, and have more planned to address this sort of problem that we couldn't get done in one day. We are hopeful that having to dismiss two warning dialogs will be sufficient to make people think twice about trades containing forged items, but this is not the end of our response, and we'll continue to monitor, of course.
