Yeah so i bought a 15$ gift card on G2A.com and today i got suspended for Marketplace Theft.
In other words the card sold on G2A are valid but generated so there not in microsoft database,
So G2A is selling Non Official Gift Card!
I got on a post on reddit and the guy who created the postbglt his account banned for lifetime (12/31/9999)
I've been lucky with my ban...... I got ban for 2 week only so share this topic anywhere you can to make the word spread and try to take of thos **** stealer and banning card seller.

The keys are very much valid, if they weren't in the Microsoft database it would show up as an invalid code upon redemption. The problem with G2A is they facilitate the use of stolen credit cards. Stolen cards are used to purchase 1000s of dollars worth of games, DLC and xbox live currency and are sold on G2A at a fraction of the cost.

G2A, Kinguin and other sites like them are gray area websites at best and I would recommend looking elsewhere for cheap games.

Yeah that make sense


The best place on internet to buy giftcard is directly via the paypal website then you'll be sure to don't get scam

Feel this is kind of a bad situation for you, I've used G2A for years and never had a single issue, does suck though as you're the one to have problems not the sellers, regardless at this stage easier to pay full price or from paypal as you stated

This really sucks for you man, I'm very sorry. But I appreciate the heads up. I've never went to one of those sites to buy anything, and this is going to keep me away forever, just in case.

Show proof that you purchased from g2a and they'll most likely lift the ban. Lots of people post on r/xbox about it all the time.
