INTERNATIONAL_ This is a lesson for parents with young children who are hyperactive and like to play games, ready to spend big money on games.
Recently in Hunan, China, a 12-year-old boy stole his mother’s mobile phone to recharge games on multiple platforms.
According to the local police, in 3 days he spent 110,000 yuan, equivalent to nearly 400 million dong. Relatives said that this is the entire savings of the family. The mother had to go to the police station to report asking for help to get her money back.
The police believe that the boy is addicted to online games, as well as the game has many events that require money, so he “hands down” without regret when spending millions to buy many different equipment and gifts. The boy couldn’t resist the temptation and secretly wrote down his mother’s payment password on his phone, so it happened.
In the end, with the help of the police, more than 90,000 yuan (more than 320 million dong) was returned to the boy’s mother. The boy also wrote a letter to the police to admit his mistake and say that he wants to be a good policeman when he grows up.
According to the police agency, the law stipulates that a minor under the age of 18 is a person with limited civil act capacity, if it can be proven that the guardian is not present when the child recharges, the customer can demand payment. return the corresponding amount, top up after submitting the relevant certification documents.
Netizens believe that parents should be more careful in preserving devices that require a password, to avoid letting their children know to “pickpocket” when it is not good.
Although now China’s anti-addiction and identity-forgery system has been established with stricter protection, even a small loophole can cause children to commit their wrongdoing.
