3 out of 4 purchases have been scams. For the scams, one I got a refund (because “the seller canceled”), one is apparently in limbo, and one I canceled myself after reading comments and the seller saying they wanted me to rate them before they would send the code.
ONLY ONE has been legit.
After the first two, I learned to look for ratings on the sellers. But then I found that some sellers are demanding ratings first and then sending bad codes. After you rate, of course, that “proves” you accept the transaction.
How can I find out more reliably whether a scam is involved? I’m tired of it and I don’t even know if I’ll get my money back for one of them.
