Cyberpunk 2077 fake keys: GOGs response

There are several ways to get your hands on Cyberpunk 2077 on PC but the safest and secure way is to purchase it directly from official stores such as Steam and GOG, or getting a physical copy with a key inside the box.

However, some gamers still prefer heading to the grey market, purchasing a Cyberpunk 2077 key from third-party sellers, likely at a discount.

If a deal is too good to be true, then the Cyberpunk 2077 key you purchased might be fake. 

Taking to Reddit, a Verified GOG Rep reported having seen questions regarding third-party resellers appear, specifically regarding Cyberpunk 2077 keys purchased for use on GOG.

The GOG Rep warns: "If you do decide to purchase a key for Cyberpunk 2077 or any other game via a third-party reseller, remember that there is a risk they've been purchased with a stolen card (that means that the game may sooner or later disappear from your account if the owner of the card realizes this and issues a chargeback) or the code you are buying is simply fake."

An example was provided with a fake Cyberpunk 2077 code "9JM6616D211B9FEA" noting GOGs codes are 18 characters long (this one is 16) while their gift codes are 20 characters long.

Basically, don't get fooled by fake keys, and rather purchase Cyberpunk 2077 from an official store.
