A 7-year-old child racked up a £3,911 ($5,767.55) bill while playing Jurassic World, a game accessible via iTunes, on his iPad.
According to The Metro, Mohamed Shugaa, 32, who is from Crawley in the United Kingdom, wasn’t happy when he learned of the bill, which came to his surprise. His son, Faisall, apparently memorized his Apple ID password, which allowed the boy to make purchases.
His son had upgraded the game’s dinosaurs by using in-game currency Dino Bucks without realizing it charged him real money. According to the Telegraph, at one point, the boy spent more than $2,000 in one hour.
