The problem is how quickly overdrafts can snowball. Imagine this- EA cleans out your account with subscription fees. After that, a different, legitimate transaction tries to clear your account (anything from a grocery store purchase to your car loan payment). The funds used to be there, but now they aren't, so the transaction is declined. At best, you'll be hit with just your financial institution's overdraft fee. At worst, you could be hit with late fees and NSF fees from whoever you were trying to pay.There could be a case against EA if banks refuse to reverse their overdraft charges. EA said that once the WHO charges have been reversed, fees that were incurred should be refunded. If not, EA wants players to make calls to their banks and credit card companies immediately.
Exactly. However, if your financial institution will refuse to reverse fees stemming from obviously erroneous charges, you need to switch financial institutions."Most financial institutions will reverse these charges." Note the word most.
