Why is EA banning/warning traders?

A friend of mine has just had all his coins taken, as a warning, under the pretext he was buying coins...

Yet he 100% hasn't. He never has. I don't know exactly how long he spends trading but he makes a good profit and keeps a steady flow of coins... but he never makes much on each player, maybe 2k at a time? He just repeats the process many times... so clearly he's not buying coins... you don't purchase coins and list up 100 players to get them, surely? You list up someone like Scream Sturridge or whatever someone said on here.

So why the warning? (not banned but will if "he carries on") They don't want serious traders to spend their time trading? I guess they would rather they open packs but my point is their reasoning makes no sense and they clearly have no evidence, it's like getting arrested on false pretences.


I think quite a few people have had similar things happen to them and will get their honesty doubted on here by some users but I know categorically for a fact that he doesn't and has never bought coins. He has no purpose as he easily gets the coins he wants from trading.

His case is being looked at, he should get a reply today from EA. Somehow in the mean time he bought points and packed Suarez and 85 Okocha... **** lucky ****... but that doesn't change the fact that he's been punished for nothing.

    Huge amount of people do second account trading. He transfered coins from his second account. Which is bannable offense.

    That’s a fair point bro. But what i would say to them if he did do that of course to deserve the ban would be;

    Where is the evidence that they have of this?

    ofcourse not, ive used like trading much more then playing the game , and it was nice to get in top 100 of trading or on top 100 biggest clubs.
    Why you think they make those top 100?

    And for ea it should be good that people like to trade ,because then they get the tax and that is on every trade.
    And getting tax on every trade means the prices stay a bit higher and coins are leaving market so people have to buy points or play more.

    But the problem started when the autobuyers came and the answer of EA was instead of simple things like for example not to buy more then 3 same players in your club, they punished people without any proof of wrong doing.

    I don't know why someone hasn't written the BBB yet. I feel like this is a huge red flag. FIFA says you don't need to buy coins, you can trade and make coins that way. Although, if you are doing heavy trading, you eventually get restricted from listing on the transfer market by having too many actions or whatever it says. The icing on the cake is during that restriction you can still buy fifa points and spend that way. They are just pushing people towards those points at every opportunity.

    On black Friday I was put on a several hour restriction that wouldn't resolve. This didn't include sniping either. Was making coins like crazy that day too. Contacted support and all they said was I didn't have any flags/ban on my account. I would just have to wait.
