I have a steam account. does anyone know how to recover it when it says it doesn't recognize my email? I KNOW that is the email i signed up with. I'm thinking the acct got hacked.

nah same thing happened to me, apparently if you are inactive long enough they delete you. I haven't bought one thing from them since it happened, gave me a good reason to remove CS from my PC.

Sounds weird - I was inactive for a few years but never had any problems. Have you tried emailing customer service?

Support for "Disabled Steam Account".

Any number of things could have happened for them to disable it, but it isn't permanent. Just click the Hijacked Steam Account and you should be able to get everything back.

I also once read about someone else having a similar problem where it could not find their account in any way and they went to recreate it using the old email and they started receiving the "lost password" emails and got their shit back that way.

They don't delete unused accounts though, I was off steam for several years at one point and I logged back in like nothing had ever happened.
