I recently purchased a digital download version of the PC game "NBA 2K11" from a website called gamersgate.com.  This site advertises itself as a fully legitimate digital download site.  It has the full functionality you would expect; however, once I paid the $29.95 and downloaded the game, I would soon find out that this company was unable to provide me with a valid cd key to register the game.  After contacting their customer service department, I received an email that simply said, "Try this one".  At this point, I decided to humor them and attempt to register the game with the second provided key.  Once again, "Invalid CD Key".  It was becoming very clear that this company is a complete fraud.  It appears that they sell unlicensed downloadable versions of PC games and then use illegal key generators to provide serial keys for their products.  Depending on the sophistication of the software company's security protocols, some games may accept these fraudulently-generated keys.  In this case, 2ksports did not.  I immediately began the refund process with the company that processes their credit card transactions (moneybookers.com) and reported the incident to their merchant services department. 

In summary, DO NOT USE GAMERSGATE.COM!  IT IS A SCAM!
