Yes, actually, I would. If it were a real steal like that. I've done it before. Like I said: I generally give about half an hour, after which I eat it.

Is it possible for me to contact the seller and ask him if he made a mistake and, if so, offer a refund? I earn a lot of EC from buying/selling on the exchange ... but selling 10 master keys for the price of one, to me, feels like robbery.

Now the OP here is a great person.

Good for you in trying to help out someone who made a mistake.. I for one know I would have just sucked it up and took the hit ( as the seller ) , even if you contacted me directly somehow

Ive forgotten that last 0 on occasion lol.. but eh.. my mistake

Update:

No one contacted me.
I already sold all the keys. Estimated profit: 40M EC.

Since computer games are often played by children, I was concerned that the seller is a child and may be devastated by his mistake. On the other hand, if the seller is a rich adult, then I thank him for his generous donation.

With the profit from these master keys, plus additional profit from numerous other things I bought/sold on the exchange, I had just enough EC to buy myself a very nice Ferengi D'Kora Marauder for 91M EC on the exchange. It's so much better than my old mirror universe patrol escort. So much better. The on-board exchange and bank is extremely handy. Lately, I spend more time on the exchange than I do playing the game.

Altruism is so rare now that it is refreshing to see, maybe the vendor is reading this thread and enjoying your common decency. I know I am.

In your situation I would leave it in my inv for a day and if no one had contacted me then caveat vendor...

Kudos.

My best deals so far were a Tuffli I bought for only 10 million EC and D'Kora for 9 Million. The Tuffli sold for 86 the D'Kora for 95 million afterwards. I kept those ships in my inventory for a whole week in case the seller would contact me. If there were a message I planed to split in half the surplus I would make from selling the items. I think that would have been a fair deal. But noone even bothered to contact me.
