    I bought this game for 4500 Tk which is pretty much the same price as its on Origin. I bought from them because I don't have credit card to buy directly from Origin.

    This is a beta code I got for FiFA 18. It does work at the moment. But it might get removed. This definitely is not a legit key cause beta keys are never allowed for sale. Neither it should work forever. I contacted them buy they are telling me that it will work just fine.

    But fine is not enough. They didn't sell this at half price. I bought it for Full price and its not even legit key. I don't know what to do now. Total waste of 3 months of saving pocket money.


    This is a lesson I learned. After resolving this issie, I'm never going to buy any game from any Bangladeshi shop again. Neither I will buy any CD key. I'll have to find a way to get credit card that works in Origin and Steam.




    If anyone here knows what I should do now, please help. I appreciate any help. This key will most likely get removed from my account once EA finds out.

    Get a bank credit card with dual currency, and endorse USD to it. Things are much easier now than it was just couple years ago.

    Did you use an alias as your account name or did you use your real name?
    I had (note "had") a FB account with a weird alias. Someone reported me and FB is now forcing me to use my real name, and I need to get it verified by providing a national id or drivers license etc. Screw that. You're better off without it.

    I used RS [First name] Sami [Last name] in my account. I'm think someone in their page reported my account since I gave a negative review about them.

    Either way, ¤¤¤ FB. It was a cancer to begin with.

    Oh God, not G2A!! That increased the possibility of removal of my game.

    Hopefully Origin allows paying through Bkash one day.

    Unless he earns around 25-30k (depending on per bank requirement) per month himself, he has to do that through someone else who does. So things are not really that easy

    You guys are assuming that the card will be accepted too. Online security is not the same everywhere, many places don’t accept BD cards, something to do with the encryption and verification used here.

    I didnt try my card yet but a friend of mine told me he can use his on Steam.

    I have been selling game keys for quite some time and haven't received a single negative feedback as of today. It's really unfortunate that you had such an awful experience.
