Yikes. Just days after being allowed back on /r/gamedeals GMG is embroiled in a new scandal: sending fake "order confirmation" emails to trick people into signing onto their mailing list. This latest move was a response to new data protection laws passed by the European Union.

GMG's response to the thousands of customers wondering if their credit cards had been stolen?

"We apologise for any disruption, confusion, or panic caused by this."

In 2015 GMG was banned from the popular subreddit /r/gamedeals amid accusations of selling unauthorized grey market keys.

that's funny. I guess they wanted to be 100% sure everyone opened the email and resubbed. Pretty cool of them to do a sweepstakes.

Yes. Lol. Over on reddit they're freaking out over it, asking for them to be banned from /r/gamedeals again.
