If you're a parent, and are not aware if your kid is spending money on this game (and your credit card is what's being used), I would start asking questions immediately. I play it and I'm not that great at it. But am I spending $500 a month on it? Absolutely not! And here's the deal, the stuff you can buy and use so to speak (upgrades as stated in the articles below) do not give you a competitive advantage over your opponent. They are mostly cosmetic, emotes, and the like. So being an avid (and I use that word lightly) player of this game, I really can't see why (I do understand how) you would spend that much money PER MONTH on this game.
