Talk to the guy that you bought it from. Ask him what it is.

You will have to get the guy to change the email address the key is assigned to, by contacting Valve. Have him change it to your own address.

Yes, he has a very good rep. I didn't buy a "steam account" i bought half life 2. I have the cd key inside the case but it won't work because it is already in use.

Thanks guys.

Hmm, then he should be alright about the steam account...

Ask him for the steam account ID and password...

If he says 'I have brought other games on that account'

Tell him 'Well you shouldn't have sold the game on ebay, can I have the account details or shall I be forced to give you bad rep and report you to valve and ebay'

If you do end up giving him bad rep, don't forget to mention 'SCAM: Steam key already used and will not cooperate'

Erm, thanks for that, not that you helped me one bit. Obviously if i bought it from ebay i couldn't see if it said "online verification" on the box. And don't tell me i'm stupid when you can't write properly.

Anyway, i usually buy all my games from ebay and never have a problem.

By the way, i asked for the guy who sold it to me to give me his account and password and now it works! So everything is fine.

Thanks for everyone's help.
