G2A employee offers to pay for undisclosed sponsored post

Another day, another controversy.

In an effort to improve key reseller G2A’s public image, an employee of the company has approached several members of the media in hopes of publishing an undisclosed sponsored post.

“We have written an unbiased article about how ‘Selling stolen keys on gaming marketplaces is pretty much impossible’ and we want to publish it on Your website without being marked as sponsored or marked as associated with G2A,” the employee wrote. “It is a transparent and just review of the problem of the stolen keys reselling.”

It wasn’t long before portions of the email made it to Twitter.

G2A has confirmed that the email was sent by an employee, though taking swift action to distance itself from the situation.

“These e-mails were sent by our employee without authorization, for which we apologize to @SomeIndieGames and the 9 (!) other media outlets he sent this proposal to,” G2A tweeted. “He will face strict consequences, as this is absolutely unacceptable.”

G2A has recently said it will pay developers ten times the amount of money lost by illegally obtained keys on its service provided an independent audit can prove it.
