English family of Dobranov probably horrified to see the state of your Bank account: it lost £ 6,000, or $7500.
It turned out that the money spent on the game for the iPad. Purchases made 11-year-old son Alfie, who the parents were allowed to use the gadget on the weekends. The boy’s father Roy shared his story with the media to warn other parents: children and the technique is best not left unattended.
The child’s mother Jill says her son did make the purchase, but only with parental permission and the amounts were much smaller — by a few pounds. The game, whose name is not called, uses shareware distribution system: download free for the passage of pay is optional, but to play, as a rule, very difficult. The situation can be greatly improved by paying bonuses or items with real money. Alfie wondered what benefits he will get by spending 99 pounds.
It seems that the result exceeded expectations: five minutes from the account of Dobranov left £ 700 in half an hour — 1100. “It’s scary. He said that the game was not to break away, but it seemed that I pressed the pay button a few times,” explained Jill. This story has a happy ending: Apple, upon learning of the situation, returned the money spent on the family.
