Um you should not need to by pass steam, just change your steam password and it should boot whoever is using your account since only 1 person can be logged in at any given time. I think even the retail product uses steam...

Because the game when you install it registers with your steam account so you cannot trade it in. If you bought it used then you wouldn't even be able to install it.

Nope - he should've never sold it. Broke the TOS. Once it's installed and registered its in their steam account.

Contact him for a refund.
