Hi,

Keys which were revoked, are relating to the following official statements from both Ubisoft and EA:


Ubisoft official statement:

We strongly recommend that players purchase keys and downloadable games only from the Uplay Store or their trusted retailers.

We regularly work with our authorized resellers to identify and deactivate fraudulently obtained and resold keys.

In this case, we confirmed activation keys were recently purchased from EA’s Origin store using fraudulent credit card information and then resold online.

These keys may have been deactivated. Customers who may have been impacted should contact the vendor where they purchased the key for a refund.



And also EA have released this statement about the situation and why they alerted Ubisoft:

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2015-01-28-deactivated-ubisoft-game-keys-bought-from-eas-origin-using-stolen-credit-cards

An EA spokesperson issued Eurogamer the following statement:
"A number of activation keys for Ubisoft products were purchased from Origin using fraudulent credit cards, and then resold online.
We identified the unauthorised keys and notified Ubisoft.

If you are having trouble with an activation key, we recommend you contact the vendor who sold it to you for a refund.

We strongly advise players only purchase keys from Origin or trusted resellers.’

More information on EA's policy is available here: http://help.ea.com/en/article/should-i-purchase-my-ea-downloadable-games-from-cd-key-sellers/



Hopefully this helps those affected get refunds - since this is the best course of action.

Thanks, nice to read some companies do care about their customers

The wording in that........doesn't strike me as very good.

sounds like they're going to try and replace as little as possible
