Help with black ops..  

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I kind of feel like an idiot, so I came here for help

I bought call of duty black ops for PC off craigslist for 15$ , and i go on steam, click add game > activate a product on steam > and then put in my product key.

I get this error message:



Is there anyway I can contact Activision or EbGames or something and lie my way out of this saying that I bought the game and the CDKey is already used?

If it helps i still have the receipt from EBGames, it was purchased in 12/21/10.

Nope once activated steam games cannot be activated on any other account ever.
Even if there was a way doing so would be a little thing called fraud which we would not help you with.

What if the original owner removed the game from his library?

You cannot remove a game from your library. You can delete the game from your computer, but it will always be activated on your account. Once it's activated on one account, it cannot be activated on another.

Black Ops is tied to steam. He had the game and he sold it? Either the seller didn't know or he really ripped you off lol. You can report him since you have his key and steam ID.

I don't have his steam ID though.
He sold me the case and the disc.
