Hi
I was wondering if it is safe to buy form sites like G2A or Instant gaming.
Scince their games are so cheap.

Is it safe to buy from them?

It is safe but it's kinda not legit. They use different schemes to get keys, some of them (keys) might be considered stolen, wrongfully acquired. There were case when those keys were deactivated by Steam as stolen/acquired with stolen credit card information.

People claim everything's OK usually, but keep in mind that there's risk.

So if I would buy something from them with for example paypal, it's possible they will steal money from me? Or do I get this wrong?
You may get something that does not work. Or, the publisher comes back later and deactivates it.
And of course, do you like supporting criminal activity?

A person selling a software license he has and never used is one thing.
Some guy that has 1500 of them is something else.

I see, so don't buy from these sites.
