Hilarious read - Thirteen-year-old tries to steal a Steam account

R.Smith 10-31-2006 12:33 AM
From digg.

A kid tries to contact someone over MSN in an attempt to coerce him into dropping password details, and gets a little more than he bargained for. Hate to be a bringer of cliché... But this is a must read.
