There is also a huge security risk. They give you the game by getting your steam id and password, and then adding it to your account.
Don't legit sites like (only one I know of) direct2drive just give you a cd key that you can register through steam/origin?
Those sites like the one he mentioned are Russian sites that buy games cheap there and sell the keys for a profit. They are not authorized Steam retailers.
The way they operate is you buy the key, give them your login info, and they add it to your account to avoid regional restrictions.
