Probably a fake giveaway here: https://www.indiegala.com/giveaways/detail/436848
Amnesia Memories and Amnesia: The Dark Descent + Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs duo (aka Amnesia Collection) are different games. Incidentaly, the latter two were given for free at HB

Maybe fake... unless the hoster wants to give out that game + the Amnesia Collection (but lesser probably)
Just checked Amnesia Collection can't be given out for now (can't make giveaway of that) - It was 18C (idk how much points)
Now depends who's the winner to see if the main description (which is the giveaway game link) fits or not
The description above doesn't matters (Amnesia: The Dark Descent + Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs)

Currently Amnesia Memories - 9C (983 points)

I looked those 4 up for yu lewriczin. The first one I thought I recognized- Geno. Yes I posted about him on 4 feb asking if he was a fake...?? It was hard to tell then and now as he been on IndieG for 5 months 14 giveaways and 0 neg. A csgo player steam level4.....Well the winner of his giveaway with 31 tickets (I stayed away as I thought a scammer) was caio_bizao, Probably a bot or scammer who never gave him a Negative......That profile is talked about between 5 and 21 feb...that is why I say a bot....
  the third one is szjz....2 months on IndieG and 8 giveaways with a neg2., No steam or error for steam anyhow...So this one doesn't stack up???
  The last one at bottom is hard to tell as almost a year here on IndieG, 31 giveaways with a neg 2 (Like above), but out of 31 it seems a little better. (I have learned not to be too harsh on negatives* I myself hav neg's), Fox is the name with steam level 5 and games. Is anyone familiar with or won good from Fox??
  TY lewriczin for the 4 with the new high value Software Giveawy.............Thought I'd post my learning experience......

Another new user with suspicious giveaways:
https://www.indiegala.com/giveaways/detail/438025
https://www.indiegala.com/giveaways/detail/438056

The second one is DLC for game actually, but it's known for being extremly expensive and almost never has any (serious) discounts.
And all it makes is giving you an X-Ray vision during the play - think about an ultimate DLC for utlimate horny perverts...
Anyway, I entered it just in case because I actually have the game (without DLC smiley) and could easily verify this one (if I only win that, haha). But to be honest, I don't believe in such miracles and soon another one will join the blacklist.

Speaking about blacklists - if there is nothing what can be done with current system (for now) then at the very least it would be great to increase number of blacklists slots and also make them available for 0 level users too.

So now I finally understand how some people have several levels with lower than 10 givaways... And I even saw some people with many levels and dubious trust rate, which makes me believe some could try to farm reputation first, to scam people later...

Well, about software: I never paid too much attention to stuff like this, as it almost never contains things that are of my interest, but I there are indeed some software bundles on pages like Humble Bundle or some other ones, where you can get them very cheaply. The big number of IC required can be problematic and allows people to go around reputation system, I really wonder if something shouldn't be done with this?

If one can buy a software bundle for few dollars (or even offer some free keys) and boost himself several levels, to gain reputation and start scamming people... then I would call it something dangerous that can be (and looks like already is being) exploited and should definitely thought out thoroghtly ='crying

There are lots of good DLC. In fact that is a developer trick, give the base game for free then have like 4 differing DLC to make some money from people... I made the mistake last year at this time to giveaway "Expensive" soft or DLC that I just "Won" from my account., Yu cannot try the key first to see if its good. Yu (OR me- I'm admitting my error) pass along the Giveaway.....Bots don't always win as is evidenced by my NEGatives......
  If yu get what is written in the giveaway- then I give good feedback..(And I am not too pickey here)...If yu do run into a Bad Key then give bad feedback...Yu should Not give bad feedback just because it is a Beta....If the description said beta- then of course yu going ot get a Beta- should not take any bones because of ti....

You should give negative feedback for beta keys EVEN if it says "beta" in the description because its against the rules!! You are only allowed to give away FULL steam games, dlc's and software on this site, and thats what users expect. Anything else is fraud.

If it is in early access and your giving away the full game then no problem.. It is if your key is "temporary" Liek a beta key would be.

the problem with beta keys is they can get revoked, like my 3 negatives is because of that.
I gave away 3 Strike Edges (a beta game) which got revoked during the giveaway (giveaway duration 1 day minimum, got revoked after 19 hours), so when the winners tried to claim the key it shows it's claimed or doesn't exists.

So never give away out Beta keys unless you want to get bad rep
