I'm pretty new to the world of steam and PC gaming since my last computer could just about run Diablo 2!

Does this seem legit to any of you. Its a hell of a lot cheaper than buying it direct from steam, but the seller does ask for my steam username. Is that safe to do? They do seem to have very good feedback.

Should be okay if all they want is the steam user name. They likely want to add you as a friend so that they can send you the gift through steam.

Edit: While it will likely be a legit transaction, I don't know if them even selling it online is kosher with Valve. They likely bought the game for 5 dollars on sale and are trying to make a few dollars. Reselling is probably frowned upon but it won't be a problem on your end.

Basically the same price if you buy TF2 keys and trade for it. That way you still have some security. When you have a bad trade while using Steams trading system; if the game gets deactivated, Valve will be on your side and get your items back. If you have a bad trade without trading anything; nothing is logged therefore Valve won't give a ****. I don't know how Paypal handles bad digital sales.

TL;DR, buy 4 TF2 keys from the Steam market for £1.40 each and trade the 4 TF2 keys for the game.
