Buying keys/accounts from Game2dl is the same as downloading piracy.

    Both of those are stolen keys and accounts so for those thinking of going legit by buying from this website are just asking to be ripped off and conned. Game2dl's has a terrible track record whether it's on Trustpilot, Twitter, Facebook (their very own page), Reddit, Web of Trust, Se7ensins or etc.

    Just take a look at this review from many of theirs on Trustpilot.

    These scammers and thieves keep on running their business as usual and what makes it worse is that there are still tons of gullible consumers who don't do their research to avoid them.

    Never trust that site. They sell you stolen accounts and give you the account to play the game on. Completely illegal.

    Sites like that, sure, but I don't think it is entirely accurate to say it is the same as piracy. The sites, much like Ebay and Amazon, are capable of housing civilian sellers, who yes, are capable of theft. However, not all of them are. G2A and Kinguin have thousands of legitimate sellers. The problematic sellers do not represent the entirety of the sellers, or even the site. Otherwise, why trust Amazon or Ebay if anyone could just steal something and sell it to you?

    You just have to be careful and use your head when selecting sellers. What are is their service reviewed as? How many successful transactions? Any accusations of keys being removed due to "being stolen" etc? Shop at these sites (though I would definitely not recommend the one the OP is talking about!) with the same kind of caution you should exercise at Amazon/Ebay/sites like it and you will be fine.
