I paid for two copies of Ghost Recon Wildlands. The first one can not be downloaded in Uplay, and the second wants me to send a picture of my credit card information. Is it safe to send?
instant gaming.com Are they legit....In ref to previous post thats locked i have started a new thread....By i7builder
Hi guys im new here but thought rather than just leech and read your threads i best do my bit and contribute to your site its only fare!, I was reading a thread which is now locked and i was unable to reply to it as it was created in 2014, so i have some more information about the site that i feel is imperative!!
when you try to trace the location of "instant gaming.com" all the sites come up with Nothing?? its totally private and why is that surely as a large company or a genuine trader they would at least have the address on the sites like " http://whois.domaintools.com/
But they dont! there is nothing anywhere i that isnt a good sign! i have recently well within the last 24 hours had an issue with them! my American mate whos a dedicated Marine of 20+ years is also an Avid gamer like me! however we are gamers on mainly Arma 2/BF3/4 etc and i said to instant gaming i will be buying keys every few months as we have been gaming (My friend and i) since the 80's and when we go on some BF3 servers they dont like how we game as we are dedicated snipers and from time to time we get high scores and people call us hackers and we get banned from some servers but we are not? its took many 100' of hours playing games like BF3 to get to where we are in fact we have youtube videos of us playing!
So after telling instant gaming we will be needing these keys every few months and bare in mind a BF3 key is only £4 or below from them so they asked me to merge my account with my gmail to which i asked what exactly did they mean? they said merge my PP account as well? i was like WHY and HOW? they didnt reply but the problem for me is i had already tried to buy from them and the transaction was "Pending" its also worth noting this site demands you have to send them PHOTO ID to them to prove you are who you are (DODGY) i had weeks ago sent them a photo of my id BUT covered over the main details and i had also bought keys off them the day i did this so i thought it was all ok? some 24 hours later they have stopped me from creating a new ticket to support and im furious!!! i wanted to let people know about this site i think anyone who is thinking of using them to AVOID at all costs! you must get a sites details before you start to join more so their demands of sending them your ID? is this even legal? some back street workhouse which has a XP running £100 pc has like thousands of peoples ID's and whats the bets they are cloning peoples ID's!!!
So here is that additional information i said i would share and you can make your own mind up!!
Instant Gaming Limited
Suite 2611, Langham Place Office Tower
8 Argyle Street Mongkok
Kowloon Hong Kong
ALARM BELLS RINGING YET?? If you google the address its a top end business tower! does selling CD keys make THAT much money?? i think its most likely a fake address but from the correct location!!
Here is the original thread from this site:
PC game code stripping is widespread says report
by Mark Tyson on 22 September 2014, 13:07
A report, by gaming industry magazine MCV, has revealed that Asia is another major region involved in PC code stripping. The news is backed by a previous study which established the effects of extensive PC code stripping in harming retail margins and misleading publishers about where their games are being sold.
MCV's most recent investigation reveals that a number of companies in Asia are stripping PC codes from boxed PC games to sell in the west. Games are often much cheaper in Asia. Boxed copies are bought, unpacked and the codes 'stripped' from them. The boxes and DVDs of these games are then dumped and the activation/download codes sold on in Western Europe, including the UK.
The widespread PC code stripping means that some consumers are being stung by region-locked game codes that do not work whilst publishers and retailers are losing money. These factors combine to have a negative effect on the gaming industry.
MVC reports that it was contacted by a whistleblower in Asia who sent the site numerous photos showing miles of shelving filled with boxed games. Warehouse staff are pictured unpacking PC games, and cellophane is seen strewn across the floor. The whistleblower described the Asian market as "rotten to the core" whilst handing over several contacts of businesses which are involved in distributing these cheap game codes.
After contacting the distributors under the guise of a prospective retail startup, MCV was able to obtain price lists for games. Examples given include; The Sims 4 Limited Edition for ?23.31 and ?18.40 for Dead Rising 3 on PC when buying over 300 copies.
"Europe has been under siege since day one, and truly I cannot understand how they have resisted the onslaught," said MCV's source. "No one in Asia has clean hands."
