They Changed Another Game

Along with the reviews on Steam data, it is also seen how the game was added to the Steam platform. The scammers have arranged for a different game that is on the air.

With this arrangement, images, videos and even descriptions of the Escape from Tarkov game have been added. In other words, another game has been changed and made into an Escape from Tarkov game.

Afterwards, the naming for the game was also played with and as a result, it was given an air as if the production was actually published on Steam. Imagine that they edited it down to the company name and system requirements.

At the last stage, fraudsters start sales with this fake game page they have prepared. Sales start much lower than the price of the game. Of course, it doesn’t take long to understand the situation.

Fake Game Page Deleted in a Short Time

With the understanding of the situation, we saw that the fake page of the game was deleted in a very short time. Of course, it is not known how many purchases were made during this period.

More importantly, Steam is incapable of preventing this situation. Ok, the page was removed in a very short time, but even the publication of the page was a situation that could make many players suffer.

Normally, Steam makes very strict controls to avoid similar situations. But it seems that there are things that have been overlooked about changing a different game to make it a fake page. It should be noted that there is no additional explanation on the subject from the Steam front.
