UPDATE: Issue was solved thanks to @DarkKnight
Im a regular buyer and a long time member on Gameflip with a couple hundred thousands dollars worth of purchase history (yes, you read that number right) and an experience with identifying good from bad sellers so I consider myself as somewhat a veteran shopper on this platform, but sadly I still get scammed here and there from time to time. Usually I get my money back but this time I lost $200 down the drain because the support team decided not to help me.
I bought two $100 Xbox gift cards from a seller named Sell Key Game.
I’ve been a buyer of his for a couple of months now but this time I got scammed good. The two gift cards I got from him were working for the first two days but then it started showing an error saying Contact whomever you got this code from. It can’t be redeemed. Sadly the order was completed automatically because I trusted him.
Never faced that kind of error before, and when googling it you wouldn’t find any useful info as there aren’t that much results in the entire internet world. I tried to contact the seller numerous times through commenting on his listings and also buying something from him just to be able to PM him, but he’s good at ignoring messages when it comes to providing actual support (I know that because I faced a similar issue with him a couple of weeks back, but I was able to dispute that and get my money back before the order gets completed automatically).
Consider this as a warning not to buy from this seller for your own good. I hope some of the mods @DunnBiscuit @DarkKnight @MajorTom can look into my ticket #494929 (profile code PQGUMT) and hopefully reconsider their decision. And if the seller is reading this and wants to make things straight, you can contact me through private messages on the forum and I would gladly let everyone know that you are trying rectify the situation.
