You will have no access to your money above the verge of 350.000 credits for preferred players. There are cartel items allowing your to withdraw credits from this trust.

The moment you subscribe again, the hutts reluctantly give you back your money and kill a wookiee (win-win situation!)
This guy is correct, and is so with delightful flavor I might add.

Subscribers who unsubscribe get moved down to 'preferred' status. I believe your cap at that point will be 350K. Every other credit that you have, and that you earn while capped, is put into 'escrow'. You can purchase the ability to withdraw credits from escrow. Also, if you resubscribe, access to these credits are restored.

I know this is annoying, but this is actually a design decision that was made primarily to slow down credit farmers using free accounts to abuse the game. We are continually examining things like this to see if we can lessen these sorts of restrictions on players without creating a haven for credit farmers.

your earned credits will go into an escrow thingy which will allow you to Ransom Back your own digital money, with real money ( coins )

But the accounts with 350k credit cap are Preferred = required money from former subscription, ROTHC or Cartel Coins purchase. These ain't the ones credit farming bots use

It only takes $5 to become a preferred account and if it gave them unrestricted access to credits, credit farmers would gladly pay that.
...probably with stolen credit cards.

A pretty good system in other games with caps you go over and it is gone. At least this saves it and you have a way to get to it.
