Hi Sir/ Madam
I am an spanish attorney.
As long as you pay the fees you are not making anything wrong even when you could change the bank account
As long as you do noy pay, they eventually will cut the supply and when you want to get it back you will have to pay the debts, so its no interesting for you not paying, at least you will lose money
