I mean lets say you buy something from a flea market or trade show and it turns out to be stolen. Then yes you have stolen goods, but if you have legitimate receipt and can lead the police directly to who sold it and where you got it,(and you have perfectly clean record) then the police are not going to throw you in jail...and no this is not an opportunity to start talking about politics or the legal system, I am talking in general.
That is one way to attack it I suppose. Actually no they have not given it back, but honestly I don't think they have had enough time to be fair to them. I figure they have only been open today about 3 hours now.
No, I know. I'm not suggesting that you intentionally did something fraudulent. It sucks that it happened and from what I've read you're taking the correct actions and showing proof of the issue to them that backs up your claim. Which is all anyone in your position can do really.
I do hope it works out for you but...
THREE HOURS? THEY DON"T HAVE YOU REINSTATED YET?!?
^Apologies. Tension breaker hadda be done.
...anywayyyyyyz... my only points really were to the people that are "ohnoz I will boycott Steam... Reason why I no longer use Steam... Steam is the Debil
" it really didn't have much bearing on your intentions.
I am pretty sure though that Steams EULA does include some blurb regarding fraudulence buried in there somewhere. It wouldn't be much of a EULA if there wasn't something of that sort to cover their posteriors.
