As if it was fault of Mailgun

I never said that.

It's your friends fault and yours for giving him these credentials.

We were doing a project together and I was the one that created the Mailgun account. How could I have known in advance he'd just hard-code it into the source files?

The point is that these issues can be handled more sensibly by a company. AWS does this all the time, writing off bills caused by DDoS attacks eating up all the bandwidth, etc. Mailgun were the ones who found out that the account was compromised, told me that it was used by a spammer, and then insisted that I pay the bills. Great experience for me!
