monkeydelarge: If you look at all the scam artists who have ripped people off here in the past, they all had less than 150 rep. They usually had around 40 rep. And none of the scam artists were really active members of the community.
Thanks bro. That was really helping. =P
Now I know why I always have to "Go First".

Yeah if you decide to trade with someone who has less than 150 rep, it is a good idea to make him give you the game first and then activate it before handing anything over to him. Common sense. If two people with low rep want to trade with each other, they should find a neutral person with high rep to act as an escrow like service. Unfortunately an escrow like service is useless when it comes to Steam keys because I believe there is no way to test them. So trading here is only risky between low rep people and Steam keys are involved.

monkeydelarge: If you trade with people with at least 300 rep
You are right, but the question is that he does not trade with a GOG user. He traded with a Steam user. He did not even know the username of the GOG user (if the other have a GOG user, maybe the other do not have a user in GOG), so he don't know anything about the other user rep.
He traded on Steam for a GOG key. That's all. No trade between GOG users.
I have traded a lot with GOG users and never have any problem.
Added (Steam)

Shovel Knight
Super Hexagon
Dungeon Hearts

rep is not that important, as the list of successful trades is!

I agree that a list of successful trades can prove that someone is trust worthy(depending on the games that were traded). A list showing you successfully traded away a bunch of cheap Humble Bundle games doesn't prove anything because who would scam someone for a cheap game? The list should show that games of high value were successfully traded away.

Ignatia1821: What's really ruining it, quite honestly, is GOG's support refusal to help. Even if I can't have my game, I darn well don't want the scammer to have it! :s
How is GOG supposed to know for sure that this was a scam? Because one party of the trade says so? GOG has no way of knowing what happened during that trade. Even if you provide screenshots, there is no proof that you haven't received something in return through other means.

GOG is not responsible for you not doing your homework and taking risks you shouldn't have. Sorry if that sounds harsh. But trading of games is a grey area, it is not officially supported, and it comes with risks, _especially_ if you do i with total strangers. There are some very easy precautions that help mitigate the risks, but if you don't take those, don't expect third parties to stand in for your mistakes.

One of those precautions is "Don't go first in deals with strangers; if you do, always be aware that you may end up giving your stuff away for nothing in return. If you don't have the standing to ask the other party to go first, choose a middleman that you both trust. Otherwise, if you care about your stuff, simply don't make that trade.

99% of scams could be prevented if people just made a proper risk assessment, and were able to say "No, I'd rather wait for a safer offer."

Psyringe:
I was thinking about this and a thought just came to me. We call it trading so it has an air of legitimacy, but we're basically a black market. After all the whole purpose of keys is that they're supposed to be gifts, not a commodity.

theslitherydeee: ..We call it trading so it has an air of legitimacy, but we're basically a black market. ..
Um, no. A black market is illegal trading, forbidden by law and a grey market is legal but generally unwanted by authorities. Neither is this here, but simple non-commercial bartering. The only thing to discuss is whether there's a violation in GOG's user agreement.
Gifting is explicitly allowed by GOG and selling or charging money for gift keys is explicitly forbidden. Bartering isn't regulated and from GOG's point of view treated as gifting. That means, if somebody sends a code, from GOG's point of view it's a gift. A real barter is only completed when both parties receive their goods. Only then the ownership of goods changes. When one party doesn't fulfil its part (here a.k.a scamming), GOG, as the service provider, would be involved in solving the issue if they'd acknowledge it as bartering. But as they're going with gifting, they're out of the game. From a commercial point of view, there's no drawback for GOG. On the contrary. The games are still exclusively sold B2C by GOG and gifting allows for customers to buy more than one key of a game, what would be impossible otherwise. Further GOG generates revenues where they normally wouldn't without gift codes. E.g. due to people trading Steam keys for GOG games, which they couldn't afford otherwise, not to forget a happy community who appreciates the flexibility - seldom to achieve with so little effort ;-)
