Ubisoft: escrow keys were purchased with fraudulent credit cards




The keys for Assassin’s Creed Unity and Far Cry 4 which blocked Ubisoft purchased with fraudulent credit cards. That says Ubisoft. The publisher seems to have no plans to compensate affected users.

Last week attracted many angry buyers of keys for Assassin’s Creed Unity and Far Cry 4 on the bell, because their keys were blocked. The players bought the keys from sites like G2A and the Dutch Game Sync, because that offered lower prices than Ubisoft itself, probably because they bought the keys in countries where prices are lower.

Ubisoft said in a statement that the disputed opposite Tweakers keys are purchased with “fraudulent credit cards. It is thereby unclear exactly where the publisher is referring: it can involve stolen credit cards, or payments withdrawn once the keys are handed over. Ubisoft recommends affected users to contact the stores that have bought the keys; the company seems not intend to hit gamers themselves to compensate. The company encourages customers to buy games just through his own shop.

Bernardo de Kreij Game Sync, one of the stores that sold the escrow keys, it is completely innocent. “We can not always see where purchased keys come from,” he says. “In this case they came from a supplier which had hitherto reliable, but they probably have another again.” The webshop compensate aggrieved customers. “We already have 25 to 30 people sent a new code,” says the Kreij. He stressed that a small percentage of Unity- and Far Cry 4 keys – about 0.5 percent – which he sold is blocked.
