Dont buy Chemistry Set Series #3 From Steam Market
I just made the mistake of buying a Chemistry Set Series #3 from the steam store, aaaand they are expired. Meaning you are allowed to pay for them, but not actually use or own them.
Thus I spent a whopping 0.03€ on nothing.

The guys from valve should* remove the expired stuff.

I dont know if i'll see the small fortune ive wasted again.

Ive read the FAQ which states:
Can I withdraw or transfer funds from my Community Market sales/transactions?

No. All Community Market sales and purchases are completed using the Steam Wallet. The funds cannot be withdrawn or transferred to another Steam account or to a bank/3rd party account.

As you can see you can still search for and find the Series #3 stuff

Have any of you experienced something similar with other items that has a expiration date?

Kindly

*Edit for clarification.

Ummmm, I'm not sure... but wouldn't running a script like that be illegal? And if so, this thread is breaking forum rules.

Im not talking about injecting scripts to the server.

I meant that the guys at valve running the stores should remove the items.
With something like a sql script.

Select all items from market where expiration date < today


Then return them to the owners. (Where they will be handled).

Probably should edit your post then, otherwise it's going to get reported.

I don't see how it's their fault you didn't check what you were buying.

Usable or not, items are still items, someone's probably interested in them.

Its not about usability in this situation. The item expired while in the market. Which means that the item did not exist at time of purchase. IN essence he purchased nothing but a box of air. Save the box itself cannot even be played with.

Chemistry sets should be removed from the market.
