Question Steam Game Refund ?

Not quite sure what happened here but I just received a confirmation email that the following game had been refunded:

Block Fuse

I really don't refund games as I'm a collector.

Anybody else see this as well ?

I posted this question in the games discussion board in case the DEV sees it and has any ideas too.

Weird, you have to go through a whole process to get a game refunded. I did it once because I accidentally bought Final Doom instead of Ultimate Doom. You don't do a refund by accident, that's for sure. I don't remember getting an email either for the refund, just a confirmation that it was going to happen and then some days later "poof", my wallet had more money in it.

SO I posted this on the games Steam Discussion boards and couple of other peeps had the same thing occur, so this appears to be a Steam snafu.

Pff, imagine that they accidentally refund you Civilization 5 when you have 4999 of the 5000 achievements.

It ain't a sale when it is designed to make you play stuff you already have
