I see that you have used your $300 wisely.

Even though some of it would probably just remain in your backlog lol

Sadly, G2A.com still seems to have better deals on the stuff that is on sale.
If what I said doesn't makes sense... it's because you don't want it to make sense.

It's hard to prove what keys there were obtained via stolen credit cards, but they definitely don't do anything in their power to prevent themselves from being a fence for illegal activities.

Also, someone's experience trying to disable the site's paid insurance. I don't know if the subscription is still a thing, or if someone realized it's a video game storefront's job (not premium feature) to ensure its game keys actually work.

Not directly. But a LOT of the keys on there are purchased with stolen credit cards. By buying one of those keys, you take money out of the developer's pocket (when it's charged back they lose the purchase price, PLUS another $20 or $30 from the chargeback fine) AND you may get the key revoked and be out whatever you paid.

It's also an effective way to launder money.

To be fair, that's not something we can accurately measure. Some of those keys are probably bought with stolen credit cards. It's impossible for us to say "a lot."

Even if they didn't they have s***ty policies like the stupid nearly impossible to cancel G2A guard "service".

I see you're one/become one of those "600+ games on Steam but play just 10% or less of it". Restraint yourself my friend.
