Letting young children play games early, with easy access to smart devices such as smartphones and iPads is gradually becoming familiar in modern society. On the positive side, this is also a good thing when early exposure to high technology will make it easier for children to get used to new and useful applications in life. However, it also comes with a multitude of problems, the most prominent of which is probably the lack of control in the spending process, especially with young gamers. Typically, the case is causing a stir in the online community recently, involving a 12-year-old teenager.
It is no longer a strange thing for young gamers to have access to games and technology from an early age
Accordingly, the main character in this story is Xiaoxiang, a 12-year-old boy from Gongyi City, Henan Province. In a time when his grandfather took him out to eat, the mischievous boy accidentally saw and memorized his grandfather’s password. Then, instead of forgetting like many other playful children, Xiaoxiang used his memory to do something very forgettable. That is the madness of shopping and spending on the Internet.
Huge “goods” that the boy bought
Accordingly, Xiaoxiang’s grandfather’s pension worth about 230,000 yuan (about 850 million VND) was converted into countless artifacts by the boy. In which, the total number of items that the boy bought was 61 items, including expensive technology items such as laptops, Apple Watch, Huawei VR glasses, game consoles, etc. It seems that he still knows. Think for a moment, the boy did not spend all the money, but left 5 yuan (approximately 20,000 VND) in the account for his grandfather to spend.
The boy’s grandfather, after hearing the news, could only make a face
At first, Xiaoxiang’s family was quite surprised to see items continuously being sent to their house. They also thought that they were taken care of by a certain giant. Then, when the boy’s grandfather was shocked to find out that there was only enough money left in his account for a cup of coffee, everything broke, and the tycoon Xiaoxiang was revealed. According to the initial investigation, the items were purchased by this gamer boy while following an online sales streamer.
Currently, Xiaoxiang’s family is contacting the brands to ask for a refund. But getting all the money back in full seems to be quite difficult.
