USA.- After a long fight with the Federal Trade Commission, Epic Games agreed to pay $245 million to players who may have received “unwanted items” and who have been banned from their accounts after disputing improper charges with their credit card companies. If you think you might be one of these affected parties, then you might be eligible for a refund of Fortnite and you can get your money back. However, can you refund your entire Fornite account right now?
In the words of the FTC, you’ll need to meet at least one of these requirements to get a refund on your Fortnite account: Parents whose children made an unauthorized credit card purchase on the Epic Games Store between January 2017 and November 2018
Fortnite players who were charged in-game currency (V-Bucks) for unwanted in-game items (such as cosmetics, llamas, or battle passes) between January 2017 and September 2022 Players of Fortnite whose accounts were blocked between January 2017 and September 2022 after disputing unauthorized charges with their credit card companies.
If you meet one of these requirements for a refund, you’ll have to wait. You will need to keep up to date on the matter by either checking the FTC website or checking your email, as we will be contacting you regarding this matter if you made an in-game purchase during the mentioned period.
Fortunately, if you only bought one item that you may not have wanted, there is a way to get a refund for that item. Here’s how you can get a refund in Fortnite: In the game lobby, hit the menu option at the top right and then the settings button at the bottom left of the screen.
Now select “Support and refunds” and then “Return or cancel the purchase”. You will see a screen with every in-game purchase you have made in the last 30 days. Select the item you wish to return and select “Use Return Ticket”. You will see which items you are refunding again. Check each of them and select “Yes”. When asked if you are sure, simply select “Yes” again.
