To remain safe, you MUST follow this guide.

You are in the possession of the original CD key, still there are rules to follow.

Guide

About first CD keys:

 

The original Hl1 key is the strongest proof of ownership, but you MUST follow the other guide as well in order to avoid being banned. CD key is proof of ownership but you have to avoid looking like you bought the account, so that is why you need to follow the other guide.

If you ever need to prove ownership, PRINT the CD key and use it as proof.

EVEN when you have the original CD key, you should avoid telling anyone that you bought this account. You also have to make sure the CD key you printed has good quality, otherwise you put your account at risk – see on the example pictures below.

If your account were stolen or locked by steam support, follow these steps.

 

Using the first CD key:

 

1. Go to a print shop where you can print the PDF file. You must print the CD key
to a CD cover type of paper. This is needed to appear authentic. After you have to CUT the CD key, below you will find a good and a bad example.

2. Contact Steam support and if you are asked, provide ownership as seen here:

3. Hand-write the ticket number next to the CD key, make a photo and upload it.

4. If you are not sure about what to do, it’s best to contact me and I will help you.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have a question after purchasing:

The Years of Service badge is not showing the correct account age, what to do?
This is perfectly normal, you will either need to buy a game worth at least $5 or add at least $5 to your Steam wallet. This will completely solve the problem. To learn more about this, visit: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=3330-IAGK-7663
I can’t log in to the email address / Steam account, what to do?
Please double check whether you are trying to log in to the same email provider (for example gmx.net is different than gmx.com), also mind not to copy any space after the password. If you have any problems, add us on Discord or send an email to us.
