UWE gets credit card scammed, puts blame on the gamers
read here: http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2013/03/08/natural-selection-keys/
and here: http://unknownworlds.com/blog/beware-shady-key-resellers-and-discount-steam-keys/

how can a key be illegal from a gamers view if he didn't break any region restrictions and actually paid for the product? it's not the buyers fault if it takes them MONTHS to clear the status, and then just cancel the keys validity.
your financial institution should have taken care of that long ago, and if they didn't tha'ts what they have insurance for.

won't buy another copy.

they should simply refund all the people who have had their keys blocked.. it's that simple. They get money from their insurance...where does it go?

Ignorance abound.

Actually, the article you've linked is pretty clear. Legit keys can be bought from Steam and from UWE website. If you got them elsewhere, it's your own fault.

As the saying goes, "I am not rich enough to buy cheap things.", keep that in mind.

You have to get a refund from the seller who sold you the bad key. That way you'll get your money back and the seller will lose out.

If they refuse to give you a refund, well... kind of proves the point, doesn't it?

This, the only authorized sellers are UWE and Steam.

So why do they take months to invalidate the keys?
It gives me very much less of a proving point against the seller, even if this info is semi-public.
There is still only UWEs statement floating in the air, nothing else.

UWE didn't get scammed. You did. You bought the game from a reseller that was selling stolen copies. Maybe keep away from these shady cd-key resellers next time.

Why does it matter? You probably got the key from a reseller that got it using a stolen credit card. UWE doesn't owe you anything. They lose money for key and for being charged back. Do you expect them to give you a new key?

They fail to collect their money, but push on the blame to me.
No I don't expect a refund at this point, but they can't expect another sale, that was clearly the motive of the revocation (right after the 10euro sale :)).
Don't sell THOUSANDS of keys without getting clearance of the cards. Thanks.

They can't know that the card is stolen ahead of time.

And they're blaming you because you are the one to blame. They didn't force you to buy a key from a scammer.

Next time dont be a total cheap ♥♥♥ and buy the game from a legit website, you have no one else to blame but yourself.

If you did not get the key from Steam or the Developer then it is your fault and no one else period.

I think the Mexican equivalent is something like "Cheap things are expensive"
