Hello,

So it was yesterday. A nice afternoon - free of worries. Browsing the markee as usual, getting in a quick game on WC3 for some old/er school fun.

A guy IM's me. I notice his SN and realize ive done some business with him before. He wants to know If his friend can send me some cash for a few gamecards and cdkey. So I accept the offer, and tell him to send when he can. He sends the money within a few minutes. He sent me about $15 extra for thanks.

I order the 3 gamecards and give them to him. Shatteredcrystal is sold out of WOWKEYS to my despair. I browse the web and find gamersloot.net - and I place an order through them. They call about an hour later, and he says their out of keys and will send me a trial key until their in. - Sigh

I tell the guy I'll send him the gamekey tommorow and I sign off.

After a decent sleep, and waking up in the morning to prepare my day, I take a shower etc. And log back in onto my computer. I launch up Outlook and oh look, 3 new emails.

At that point in time, my attitude goes into a downward spiral. $170 dollars is on hold - because the owner claims it was compromised. I log into the paypal site, and check it out. Not only the $170 dollars is on hold, but so is the $100 dollars I have for the original guys keys as well - for the same reason (which I never got an email about).

I arrive home.

Paypal has awarded $170 dollars back to the guy. [censored].

The $100 from the original guy is still on hold, and Im awaiting to see what the hell happends with that.

I will release [censored] once I talk to the guy, who still expects the CDKEY.

Interesting situation.

Sorta off subject. How come people actually have other people by GC's and keys for them? I mean this isnt the first time Ive seen people asking for cards and keys. Not that i have problem with it just a bit bewildered as why they dont do it themselves from the same sites the sellers are using.

Is there something obvious I'm missing?

Please dont take this as a flame in any way shape or form I just literally am curious/confused.

Well Im assuming he saw my CDKEY posts, and contacted me about it. I of course didnt have any more, but he was offering a little more then what was on shattered crystal - so I bought.

Then he "told his friend how fast and legit I was" and he wanted some too.

Yeah i get that, but why dont people just buy direct from shattered crystal. This isnt the first time ive seen people buying from other MD traders instead of direct from sites. I just wondered was there some fundamental reason people choose to pay more to buy of private (although confirmed genuine) seller as opposed to a well known site. Is it just that people are lacking knowledge that they can purchase keys direct? Or something else.
