KinguinThey sold me fake game key

Review updated:

I bought a game key from them and when I decided to use it I found out it was not working and that's not all! It also said that it was stolen! I immediately went online and contacted Kinguin, but they never replied. I sent them over 20 messages and they completely ignored me.
Kinguin is stealing money by selling fraudulent game keys! This is absolutely illegal and it a crime! Avoid this place at all costs!

    Everytime I go to buy from kinguin there's some new security glitch causing me to create new accounts, I sat there for 20 minutes reentering the verification code for a new computer, funny because I signed up on the laptop and kinguin never kept me logged in. Now I just spent 30 dollars for no reason because they won't respond to the ticket they made themselves. Good job kinguin.

    @Abeer Soorma Although if you decide to buy from kinguin and have a problem, try using the live chat that solved my problem in less than 30 minutes rather than a support ticket.

    I'm amidst a similar problem. I bought a SWTOR gamekey that had already been used. I went through the laborious process of trying to file a complaint to Origin through Kinguin (since that's who Kinguin tried to pass my complaints to). The format of the screenshots was rejected. I called my bank but they can't dispute it until it's gone from "pending" to "posted." At length, Kinguin was able to talk me through getting the screenshots they needed to file their complaint about Origin to Origin. That done, I'm told I have to wait 24 hours. Meanwhile, I'm out the money. I provided a devastating review, complained to my bank.
