I just got a new copy of Black Ops for my PC from and it keeps Telling me my key number is no good. If I was to use a keygen for this game to get my copy to work could I lose my steam account? I just dont want to have to send the copy back and wait weeks for a new copy.

Steam knows all the keys they issue. Keygens don't work.
Just make sure that you got it from a legitimate source (e.g. a trusted reseller or themselves), and contact support. Or tell Amazon that your key didn't work and demand a refund.

Tell Amazon your key didn't work, they are fucking awesome and will probably instantly give you a new key or send you a new copy.  Their customer service is the best thing ever.

contact amazon or steam.  One of them will tell you what to do.  Also double check to make sure you input the right code.  O's  might look like 0's and etc.  Just don't be stupid and use a keygen on a steam game because you'll be banned.
