Eight Year Old Girl Buys Over $6,000 in In-App Purchases

By now people should know to keep devices away from their young kids, It could end up costing you some money. One eight year old girl spent over $6,000 on in-app purchases.

Apple has since refunded the money, after initially refusing. This after the dad went to the media. I wonder if they would have relented without the media. Doesn’t sound like it. The child had his password apparently.

“I was very surprised how dismissive Apple were. This was an eight-year-old girl. Basically iTunes have told me categorically that I won’t be getting my money back. I am also disappointed that my bank didn’t alert me to what was going on.”

At least it all ended well. Remember, keep your devices away from your kids or secure them.
