MarkoH01: Sorry that I have to say this but I really cannot understand how anybody (even a newbie on GOG) could see a logical explanation as to why he or she should give away his/her e-mail adress. We have the GOG chat here (and in other forums you have PM) and there is absolutely no need for another communication method just to send a few keys. So how could anybody fall for this approach?

I know that you are hurt right now because of the scam and I don't want to pour salt into the wounds but this is something I am absolutely curious about because I just don't understand.
I guess I just really wanted to complete my first trade, and didn't think enough.

So you switched of logic for a moment? Yes, I think this is understandable. Thank you for the answer. Now that you know this thread you surely will be more careful next time and remember you cannot be too careful. So in case there is any doubt just ask here. This community is a really helpful one if you let them help.

Yes, thanks. As soon as I came across this thread (even though I had known for a few days before), I could tell that I had definitely been scammed.

Fairfox: S'tricky, but I guesses frooom a business point o' view it's wise for GOGie to have a hands-off approach in this instance (an' only this one. They're terri-bad in other areas they should be investin' in); they're just not as big as Steamie an' don't have teh funds/capacity to turn trading into a lucrative, moolah-makin' exercise. You could probs saaay teh downside to taht is ill-will/bad publicity, but they don't fo' real seem to have cared thus far, so I doubt it's doin' much harm to 'em. Hey ho.
Man, I can't tell if you're genuinely from the South or just try overly hard to appear like that.

My guess...

Is that you're phony!

Jk. But in my experience as Customer Service, people from the South were the most terrible at expressing themselves, describing the problem, or typing correctly in general.

Tauto: Don't be heart broken as I'll fight on to the death.
