these cretins are all over ebay you search for a game key and something cheap comes up once you click on the post its actually not a game key but rather access to a account. theres no option on ebay to report them

Should be, what does not participate in digital sales (unless something changed im unaware of) so a sale like that is against there terms and conditions

I was wrong, they do allow digital items now.

But I checked and there is still a reporting tool on the mobile website at least. You have to scroll pretty far down to get to it though

not sure about that. i used to sell digital codes from blu ray movies i bought. i never used them so it seemed like a waste. i usually put them up for sale for a third of what the entire movie package cost me. the last time i tried to do this (around 2 months ago) i get message that trying to sell digital copies isn't allowed.

nucky641094d ago

so true. i was always curious as to how people were allowed to do that. now i know - they aren't supposed to.

Why are they calling this trading accounts, this is plain and simply stealing.
