Why you should never EVER buy from Kinguin.

Post by Divinejames » Fri Nov 16, 2018 1:25 pm

Tuesday I made the mistake to buy the new fallout 76 game from Kinguin. I already was pretty worried since I know about the bad reputation these companies have, but I was low on money so I decided this would be the best option, and since they have this thing called “Buyer Protection” I thought I would be safe from fake keys. And how wrong I was.

After the payment went through, I got an email containing a key, possibly from a store bought game. I tried to enter this key three times, checking if I had made a mistake in how I typed it, but I hadn’t. The key didn't work. So I thought, all good, I’ll just try to get a new one with the buyer protection I got with the game. I contacted Kinguin and they said they needed proof. A lot of screenshots, including proof the key didn’t work, transaction history etc. were all needed.

After I gave all this information over the course of 3 days they came to the conclusion I needed to go to Bethesda and ask them for the activation date from the key. But here’s where I hit a dead end. Instead of receiving this information, they ALSO needed a proof of purchase etc. But when I showed this, they said they couldn’t help me since I bought it from Kinguin. After heading back to Kinguin they came to the conclusion “that the can’t overrule the sellers required information” so if I am unable to get this information I would just have bad luck. So I lost 40 euros buying a game that DOESN’T work and Kinguin isn’t willing to assist. In the future, do yourself a favor and save the hassle and potential money loss.https://inro.in/lucky-patcher/ https://inro.in/9apps/ https://inro.in/vidmate/
