The morning host of a local radio station I listen to was on a rant this morning. Apparently his son did not realize that you had to spend real money in order to purchase fake money for GTAO and spent $228.00 on GTAO Cash Cards this weekend. Us Canadians know better than to beat their child over this ( ;) ), but I'm interested in hearing what you would do if you were the parent?

 

PS: Let this be a warning to those with children who play GTA V!

Wait. He paid it, right? How come he was able to pay so much cash?

The father's credit card was connected in order to pay for the son's Xbox Live membership.

Depends how old the kid is. If he's under 16, he would have caught an ultrawhooping. If he was over 16, I would have kicked his ass out on the streets and let him fend for himself.

 

P.S. If he was under 16, I'd give his dad an ultrawhooping as well.

I think its the parents responsibility to know what this kid is buying. Show them what is wrong and what is right

I would kick my own ass for being that out of touch with what my kid is doing.

The kid would be in big trouble as I AM SURE he knew what he was doing.

 

Reminds of a few years ago my youngest daughter needed surgery, the wife and I stayed with her in the hospital for 3 days. My oldest and her iPod stayed with my father in law for the weekend. We went to leave the hospital but first had to get the kids meds for home, so we get them and pay with our debit card but it is declined....wtf? My wife calls the bank, our card was frozen for fraudulent activity.... double wtf?

 

Come to find out my (then) 7 y.o. was playing a FREE iPod game all weekend but was making in-app purchases of stuff for the game, in the amount of roughly $350 before the card was frozen.

 

Yeah, that was cool. We actually fought with Apple and won, got our money back. Now the apple devices all have password for all downloads and purchases lol. I honestly don't think she knew what she was doing.....that is what I tell myself anyway...hah.

 

You live and you learn.

If there's one thing I'd never pay for in a game it's money. The stipulation to that is if I could make real money back, and in amounts large enough to profit over my original investment. Just play the game and have some patience. You'll get there.
