What was it? Whether it was a packet of chips, a video game, a CD, a magazine, a gun, a flower, a yacht or an island, post it here.

My most recent purchase was a CD - Dream Theater's "Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence".

  • Yeah, there's something not entirely right about these guys. I got an e-mail asking:
    Firstly , have you ever used proxy server to make an order in our store ? If not, I need you to tell me some details about your last logging ( IP address).
    Secondly, which city are you currently in ?
    As this is a standard procedure in our shop it would be really helpful if you answer these two questions above.
    ...yeah, you're not getting that from me. Now if I could just get my Steam key, that'd be great, thanks.
  • My god. How on earth did I manage to purchase items in their store. (3 over several years).
    I hope you have your keys by now.
  • I do not. I was seriously considering sending them photos of my ID (with certain areas blacked out) but as no one else is being asked for it, I feel really nervous about this and decided to instead send an email expressing my annoyance.

    I also put a link to this thread to prove my point that no one else was being asked for what they wanted from me.
    Color me rather suspicious. I don't feel that this procedure should be necessary, nor do I think it safe considering the prevalence of identity theft. I am not a bot. I am not a scammer. I just want my Steam key, please. -.-

    I am also aware that you have not been asking other customers for this information:

    Why are you asking for it from me??

    I am not amused at being asked for this, and find it to be very intrusive on my privacy, highly suspicious and annoying.
  • Let's hope you get an answer soon or your moiney back.
    If it doesn't work out send me 12.99€ via paypal and I'll buy you the game from (same company)
  • Will do.

    ooh. Also, from a google search, I found where one can input the Witcher 2 Serial # on
  • Dear customer

    The reason why we held your order for investigation is because our security system detected some suspicious activity carried out on this customer's account. Actually, our security system works in a lot of ways to detect suspicious payment, but unfortunately because of security reasons I can't give you any details.
    Please kindly understand that sometimes there is a risk and fraud involved in online transactions, and we need to use this security system to protect our users.
    I have to ask you to send us scan of your id card as we requested, once we verify it your case will be resolved.
    We are very sorry for any inconvenience.
    Okay, so they're not backing down on this, but they're being somewhat polite about it...

    umm... I'm unsure whether I should concede. I do know that my wife would not.

    Also, my account is new, created today. Used Paypal to pay for the game.

    I wouldn't either.
    They would not get my ID. No Way.
  • It's your ID card. I wouldn't.

    I've been trying to contact them using their 'LiveChat' for around 15 minutes now. Fed up with this.

    EDIT: Huzzah! After 20 minutes, someone's talking to me. Very, very slowly.

    EDIT2: Gah! 8 minutes of LiveChat and he tells me to just e-mail them, which I've already done! Gah!

    email sent from my end:
    I'm not comfortable with sending that. I'm really not. If I do send it, I know that I will later question myself for having done so.

    I don't know what reason you have for thinking me a scammer. If I was a scammer, I wouldn't be going to all this trouble. I'm just a US citizen who heard about your sale and was interested in making a purchase.

    EDIT: You know this feels like more trouble than it's worth.
