The law doesn't require EA to have lost money on the transaction for it to be considered fraud, only that the perpetrators profited through deception. But if you're only going to be satisfied if a monetary loss was involved, remember that the people they sold the ill-gotten coins to are out the money (since EA would have deleted the coins and anything they were used to purchase), and that EA would have had to sink man-hours into the forensics to track what happened who ended up with the coins. This was not a victimless crime.
