If you can prove to EA that you own the original game, they will give you a new one within 24 hours. This usually involves teling them the serial number off your CD etc... or a photocopy of it. They then ban the original key, and send a new one out, preventing people from phtocpying their friends cd's and playing online with a pirated copy. However, they also appear to have measures in place preventing cheaters globally banned from obtaining new CD keys. Just incase ur not telling us the entire truth :P Personally I had my CD-KEY stolen by a rouge program a good year ago, and have recently been banned by punkbuster. EA arn't especially helpfull, but I bet they hear loads of BS stories from cheaters, so I cant blame them. Contact EA customer services, via the EA website.

You need to contact EA via phone or e-mail. A rep will tell you exactly what you need to do. Good luck!
