I used a debit card to purchase BF4 and I was charged $0.99 2 times so I called my bank and they said that I have those 2 transactions currently waiting and I never spent $2 on anything. This is absolutely rediculous. I want the transactions taken off or declined or whatever. This is VERY upsetting and the transaction NEVER WENT THROUGH when I tried to buy BF4. I tried it a couple times and still nothing. I would like to talk to someone @ origin or EA on the phone ASAP because I am VERY disappointed.

These are pre-authorization charges in order to verify the debit/credit card, which will usually be cancelled or refunded after a few days. In regards to your failed attempt, please make sure that the name and address of your credit card matches the information stored in your Origin account. 

If you require further assistance with this, I would recommend contacting a Game Advisor at who might be able to look into this for you.


1 Click on the following link:

2 Click on the blue button "Contact a Game Advisor"

3 Enter the name of your game or product (or "Origin" for account-related issues) and click "Find Solutions"

4 Select the type of issue and the platform you play on, and click on "Find Solutions" again.

5 Click on the blue button "I still need help" if the FAQ articles do not apply to your situation.

6 Select a contact option. Note that you may get different contact options depending on your country or time of day.
