Hey FIFA Forum,

I'm writing up this post ( well I've copied Roger's post :smirk: ) as there has been an influx of scam posts as of late, we try to take them down as soon as they pop up however we don't always get there in time. We are also taking other measures on our end but these people are creative and constantly finding ways around them.

If you did click on any of these malicious links please get in touch with our support here.

In order to stay safe on FUT, you need to keep in mind that there are three ways you can buy FIFA Points:

Through the FUT Store

Your console’s store

trusted retailers.

You can also purchase codes on physical cards at retailers that you can redeem for Points. That’s it.

Here are a very important tip, always check the URL of the site if you are asked to sign in with your email & password.

Valid EA domains are:
EA.comEASports.com
Unlike easports-deal.com or easports-freepoints.com.

These pages look like that real deal, but they are not if the URL isn't an official EA site, they might as well look like this:

Other than that if you see see an offer too good to be true, it's because it's not true. Especially if it's coming from another forum posted who claims that he won 25 000 points.

Thanks,

Bagnall.

    The bigger issue is that people buy coins through coin distros and then have their account “hacked” because the only way they get coins into their account if the coin distros know your password etc

    Amount of shots don't always tell the story, I often win with 5 shots or so, my opponent maybe 12 shots.... But I tend to limit those shots to low percentage shots with my defending, then when I go forward I rarely shoot from distance, I try to work high percentage chances.
    I play 5, 8 or 10 depth depending on my mood.

    Chaps

    Most on here are intelligent but there are always the gullible

    IF you get an email or message saying you have been rewarded a free Birthday pack.....Do NOT click the link

    its a scam and you WILL lose all your coins


    and I'd rather warn everyone, even the savvy ones, that have 100 threads tomorrow saying 'I've been hacked'

    EA has said it will appeal a ruling from Dutch authorities over loot boxes in FIFA after it was fined up to €10m.

    In a mid-October ruling, judges at the Court of The Hague authorised the Netherlands Gambling Authority (KSA)'s enforcement of the fine, first imposed in 2019, and published today. EA has three weeks from the date of the order (15th October 2020) to change the way FIFA 19, FIFA 20 and FIFA 21 works in the country. So, in effect, it has one week to make a change to its most recent FIFA games. If it refuses to make a change, EA must pay €500,000 per week, up to a maximum penalty of €10m, in fines.

    The Netherlands Gambling Authority declared loot boxes illegal because they are considered a game of chance, and therefore violate the country's Gambling Act. Under Dutch law, a game of chance that allows a prize or premium to be won can only be provided if a relevant licence has been granted.

    FIFA lets players spend real-world money on Ultimate Team packs, which contain a random assortment of players for use online against other human opponents as well as against the computer. FIFA has been accused of being pay-to-win and for encouraging children to gamble because of this mechanic, which is highly lucrative for EA. According to video game industry analyst Piers Harding-Rolls, the FIFA game franchise is a $2bn annual business for EA, with the majority of revenue coming from Ultimate Team sales.
