This article was written to give you the greatest advice that anyone can ever give you about FIFA Ultimate Team: cards duplicators, coins generators and other similar stuff DO NOT exist. They are scam tactics. If you venture to go that way, you will almost certainly lose your coins and your best cards. Always follow the safety recommendations of EA Sports.
Every day we meet new stories of people who have been cheated. They searched an easy solution to their FUT financial problems in the wrong place. They find gamers with huge amounts of coins and they think that they can also get it using these programs. They think wrong. These players have many FUT coins because they know how to win them honestly in the market, because they use some cheats that work or … because they are scammers which enriched thanks of those who falls into the trap of cards duplicators, coins generators and other stuff.
In most cases, they request your account information. Once transmitted, the scammer goes into your account and transfer everything that has value. When you come back, which sometimes is only possible using the security question, you see that they stole all your coins and that your squad was replaced by bronze players without value. In that case, there is not much to do. You can always complain to EA Sports (learn how to do it here), but the surest answer is that it’s your fault because you did not follow the safety recommendations. And they are right…
The Scam Tactics
The scammers do everything to convince you to give your account details. They volunteer to help you using software with fancy names such as cards duplicators, coins generators, fifa ultimate team hack, etc …
The first one is supposed to duplicate the cards that you have. Typically, they require access to your account and ask you to choose the FIFA Ultimate Team cards that you want to duplicate. It’s a clever tactic because just want to duplicate those who already have valuable cards. And the scammers want exactly that: to cheat who has an account well stuffed.
The Coins Generators are a bit simpler: they ask for your account information so that they can transfer an amount of coins in it. There are scammers that, to make the thing more credible, request a payment for this service. They earn double.
But the scam tactics do not end here. Not all who are cheated were looking to get rich quick. Some just wanted to see a squad that was supposed to be shared or to obtain technical support. But they made the mistake of inserting their login and their password. This is indeed the number one rule if you do not want to be cheated: never give your information to anyone, even to EA Sports.
Searching for Cards Duplicators, Coins Generators and Other Stuff
What we’re doing now may cost us some retaliation but it’s important to show you how creative are the scammers. Let’s search for easy FUT coins.
We’ll start by looking for results well positioned in the search engines. One of the first we have obtained is a good example of what is done. The author begins by describing his unsuccessful experiences in trying to find a cards duplicator but continues saying that he finally found one that works. Typical. He asks a few coins in exchange to make the thing more reliable and he requests the user account information, essential to be able to duplicate. In order to win the trust of the user, he puts a picture of a super team that he built thanks to the cards duplicators. It does not prove anything.
Also well positioned in the search engines is a popular website that “offers” the service of Coins Generators. Everything worth to convince the player to enter all his account information: fake positive feedback, promises that they are reliable, references to EA and lots of exclamation marks.
The fraud is not always made through a website. Another very common method is to use software created for this purpose. The player downloads the program (inclusive distributed via torrents), enter his account information and then it sends to the scammer.
But there are two platforms where this deal seems to thrive: Facebook and YouTube.
It is not difficult to find Facebook pages that offer cards duplicators, coins generators and other similar stuff. They fill the pages of ‘likes’ and fake feedback to convince the users to follow the method they recommend. They also use giveaways to attract more followers and make the page more attractive.
In Youtube the method is similar. Most of the videos, like the image below, refers to the description or to a website where the account information is subtly requested. Some of them struggle a bit more and share squads that supposedly have been build thanks to these cheats.
It is obvious that the scammers try to use all available platforms and therefore also frequently attack in forums and blogs. As in this case there are moderators, the most common strategy involves making themselves pass as EA Sports employees. In the case of the image below, the scammer posted an article on a website apparently trustworthy. He promises thousands of coins, presents himself as an EA employee and uses an email address with the word ‘ea’.
There are hundreds of examples that we could continue to explore: cards duplicators, programs with names as suggestive as “FUT Hack”, websites that are authentic replicas of the official EA website, squad sharing links that redirect to other sites, etc …
It seems to be a lucrative business. Part of the stores that legitimately sells FUT Coins, are provided by scammers who use the methods explained here.
As you can see, you have to be very careful. In general, you can avoid all these schemes follow the five basic safety rules:
- Always double check the sign-in URL starts with: http://www.ea.com;
- Always make sure the URL does not redirect to another site;
- Never click links in emails asking for account information or claiming your account has been compromised;
- Never give out your account information ;
- Do not look for cards duplicators, coins generators and other similar stuff.
