Post by muskrats »

Contact the seller and ask for a refund reversing the charges for postage??

Try to contact ebay to know what are the best things to do. You can contact them through the contact page on their website. You must have it not too long.

I would never buy a used PC game from anywhere. Contacting Ebay might be your only option. Don't think STEAM would help you since you bought it used. I'm sure it's against the TOS to transfer CD keys. Sometimes game companies make an exception though. You might have to send in a picture of the actual CD case and CD key to prove you have ownership of it.
