So, I figured this could be a scam to begin with, and instead of risking it too much, i offered to give a lesser value item (pilokota #47) in return for a Skyrim activation code, then once the game was activated correctly, we would trade again and exchange the disclosed amount (10 keys) and he would return the lesser value item. However, after trading over my compensation, the seller gives me an invalid activation key, and blocked further communications.
Also had a fake admin with a fake middleman service with no proof of rep.

I have numerous other screenshots as well as the ones added if needed. The first screenshot shows our trade for my Pilokota #47 as compensation for him going first, second screenshot shows him posting a false activation code, and after my response that its invalid, seller claims he will activate it, then instantly blocks me and signs off. Third Screenshot is the activation code coming up invalid.
This isnt the most devastating loss out there, but this guy definitely tried to use his own friend as a middleman to scam me out of 10 keys. Thankfully i used something to compensate, rather than offering this guy 10 keys.
