My son is a huge fan of Skylanders. He was on my phone and using the one click order feature to order Skylanders. Never knew there were special ones that cost more money. One of them was $86. I promptly turned that feature off.

There is a trending story about a guy in England who's 7 year old kid blew $4000 in in game purchases over the weekend

Heh.  My nephew was in to them last year.  Had to coordinate with my sister to make sure I got the ones he wanted for his game.

This year he wanted other stuff so I guess he has moved on (or has enough of them).  Looks like it could be a deep rabbit hole based on how many of the figures are out there!

It is a way to separate parents from their money.

I cancel orders all the time.

1 click ordering can easily be disabled to prevent the op's problem from reoccurring.

One thing that sucks is if they actually managed to charge the card Right before cancellation, it takes almost a week for the authorization to fall off.  So if you pay with your check card you'll be waiting on funds to return.

There are quite a few mobile games selling items that cost $500-$2000 bucks.   Some of them don't have dollar signs next to the prices, just numbers.

You have to be absolutely insane to have any sort of one-click purchasing turned on, or skeezy games with microtransactions, and hand the device to a kid.


You got off easy.
