Key Resellers & Trusted Sellers

Following a recent post, I need to make this clear; certain websites resell keys, hence why prices are so cheap on those websites. "Resellers" are retailers that do not work directly with publishers to sell their game keys. Instead they'll buy codes from regions where games are cheaper, or through third-party sellers. These third-parties are generally unknown to the end buyer, which makes it a blind purchase.

Risks buying from these sites could include that the keys simply don't work, the keys could be forcibly removed from your account etc.
