The scammer is banned from the Steam community and the Dynostopia page is removed from Greenlight.

This is a big security problem. Like, there might be this awesome-sounding game, only to find out that it's a trojan horse to let a boatload of viruses in when downloaded. It's not just scary, it's also something that can be easily missed if one is not careful.

That's why it's best to not be a guinea pig and wait for reviews .
