Unauthorized reseller that buys bulk keys from other countries and resells them. Basically stealing from the devs. Most people don't have issues with the keys, but it could be revoked at any time with no refund.

And possibly* purchased with stolen CC numbers in said countries. Not just stealing from the devs, but random people as well.

I've bought from them many times and nothing has ever been revoked. They buy in bulk which is why they are able to sell legit keys at reduced rates. No different than many other sites that sell keys.

Proof? They have reps that purchase in bulk. Maybe go read their FAQ page that explains this. Developers can also put region locks on games that go by key lot. So if they were concerned, it would be a rather easy fix.

I must have missed that part in Enron's FAQ where they blatantly stated it was one big ponzi scheme. Or in other 3rd party key sellers FAQs (G2A and Kinguin are the big ones) where they just admitted to breaking the law. Just because they typed it up and put it on their site doesn't mean it's true.

Maybe they aren't using stolen money, but even the self-admitted practice of purchasing in cheaper regions to resell at a markup is shady.

I think cdkeys just does bulk purchases. They don't carry a lot of games because they aren't doing that credit card scam deal. Compare them to the other sites, and they might carry 2/3's of their stuff at best.

You sound like a drama queen. I've bought bulk game keys and sold them on Ebay without ever having an issue or giving someone a bad key. It's the same thing these guys do and it's perfectly fine. CDKeys has also been around for years and the majority of people seem happy with their service, including me. If it's not your cup of tea, then nobody is stopping you from going somewhere else or paying full price on Steam.

Right, and those "many other sites" are also violating the terms and are not authorized resellers of the game.

These people buy from other regions where taxes, fees, distribution costs and licensing may be way cheaper allowing them to sell the game cheaper. They then resell in a place where there are all of those added expenses.

And the people buying from them expect support, updates and Steam support, none of which they paid for in the region they expect it.

And I have seen what these developers go through to stop these key resellers... it isn't worth it. All the work they do to shut them down and they will have a new domain up tomorrow with a new batch of unauthorized keys.

Unauthorized keys? They're released by the developers/publishers. You don't know what you're talking about.

Actually you don't have a clue. Not sure why you are so adamant about defending these key companies when you don't even understand the process.

To sell a game the seller needs to be authorized by the distributor, or the developer if they are self-publishing. Only those companies can sell the game.

What these places do is go to those sellers and buy bulk keys. CDkeys is not an authorized seller, they are an unauthorized reseller. Just like the terms of the game legally prevent you from doing the same.

And as others have said, most of these key resellers use stolen credit cards or bank accounts to buy the bulk keys, then resell them.

Maybe if you're going to spend all day arguing on the internet you could go spend 20 minutes learning a thing or two about the subject you're arguing?

You are clueless. I sell keys sometimes and I go through the same process. Buy them in bulk and sell them at a reduced price. There is nothing wrong or illegal about it. Just like you can sell used games directly to people or to a store like GameStop. What you can't do is duplicate the material then sell it or claim it as your own material. Learn before you post or you'll just end up confusing other people, like yourself, who don't understand.
