        They are allowed to blame Google for the purchases that didn’t work. But yes, agree 100% here that it wasn’t all too smart to give an 11-year-old access to your bank account.

        I wonder if the bank will lay fraud charges now? Law states you need to keep your info secret and are not allowed to share it with someone who isn’t a signee on the account. And she gave access to a minor. Some serious legal implications here

    So many Mothers think their 11 year-old is so tech savvy and clever. They also fool themselves into thinking they are responsible. Stupidity like this doesn’t deserve sympathy. If you have an 11 year old, even if they behave better and seem smarter than most adults (which to be honest doesn’t take much), don’t assume they are so smart and responsible.

    Even with your credit card details on the google play store, mine is set to require a specific password in order to purchase anything, so my son has access to the tablet and often asks us if we can buy him a specific game on it but he cant do it on his own.

    Must have been grandma and grandpa that gave access to the little bugger to their life savings account. Now grandma and grandpa needs to eat dog/cat food because you wanted to farm/candycrush/hoard things faster and easier.

    I actually dont think the hate being flung their way is justified, they seemed well aware of what they were doing, that issue where they money was coming off despite the transactions not working can happen to anyone and its really an issue on their side. It does surprise me that they didn’t see the money coming off though, Im not sure how that was missed. Its not like the kid did something really thick though, or decided to just blow the money. Glad they at least got the big amount back, that could cripple an entire generation of a family.
