Selling the account is pointless aswell at least for me it is. Where would you list it? I understand people buying league of legends accounts and that kind of stuff but GOG and steam accounts? It's a huge risk to buy a steam account. It can easily be taken away from the person who bought it if you send steam support some CD keys or receipts as proof. If steam finds out you can be permanently banned (your accounts) .. Although it's highly unlikely for them to find out. Just my opinion, i don't think most people take the risk even if they're trying to buy an high rep account from a person they think is trusthworthy. I have no idea regarding GOG.
It's just a waste of time in my opinion but sure it can happen.
So you're more in it for the trolling of other users?
Because, as I said, the games are easily available "elsewhere".
Btw., while I don't use Steam, I know a lot of people who are. And I've heard of multiple occasions where accounts changed hands for money. I've even had an offer from someone I personally know that I could have his account (for very little money and with quite a lot of newish AAA games) because he had lost interest in gaming. And I know there are sites where accounts are offered for sale. Quite a few of hacked, no doubt.
Concerning GOG accounts - when Witcher 3 came out there were people here who had their accounts hacked and stolen. Those accounts were then sold to unsuspecting people. One of them (from the UK iirc) was even here on the forum saying sorry for being that naive, but I won't search for that thread now.
Depends on what games you're talking about. Although bundled games are cheap and the bundles are also cheap that doesn't mean i want to pay for it with real money. That's why i either scam or buy them with steam wallet.
"So you're more in it for the trolling of other users?"
I'm in it for the games (to actually play them and for collecting purposes) and for the "after-scam" drama. That's fun to read.
Regarding those sites.. I know there's lots of those but the big question here is: "Are they Legit?"
Short anwer: No, because of what i said. I'm pretty sure MOST people don't trust those sites and the people who sell accounts. Like i said, it's sooo easy to get your account back. You only need 1 CD KEY. Last time i contacted support all i had to do was send them my first CD KEY ever and i got my account back quite fast.
I'm sure there are friends who sell accounts to eachother but that's different. What i'm talking about is selling/buying accounts to/from strangers.
