Parents, let this be a lesson: Don't leave your childunattended with your iPad. Seven-year-old FaisallShugaa apparently decided to get himself an earlyChristmas present in the form of Dino Bucks, whichin addition to being an in-game currency of JurassicWorld, are also linked to, you know, real money. Thegrand total? A whopping $5,000, all of which wasspent between December 13 and 18. Needless tosay, Faisall's father, Mohamed Shugaa, is none toopleased about the charges.
父母们，引以为戒吧：不要在无人看守的情况下让你的孩子玩你的iPad。这不，七岁的Faisall Shugaa显然决定为自己早早准备一份的圣诞礼物，那就是恐龙币。是的，这种恐龙币除了作为侏罗纪世界的游戏货币外，还与现实中的钱有关。花费总额是多少?高达5000美元，这些钱都是在12月13号至18号期间花的。不用说，作为Faisall的爸爸，Mohamed Shugaa对这笔花费是非常不高兴的。
As it turns out, the youngster memorized his father's Apple ID and password, which allowedhim to make purchases, mostly to upgrade the dinosaurs available in the video game. In asix-day period, Faisall managed to make an impressive 65 transactions, at one point spendingsome $2,000 over the course of a single hour.
Shugaa, who is a storeowner in the United Kingdom, discovered his son's many, many mistakeswhen he attempted to make a purchase from a supplier. After his own charge was declined,he called his credit card company. He was was put in touch with the fraud team, who asked ifhe "was aware 60-plus transactions had been made to iTunes from December 13 to 18 totaling3,911 pounds," he told British newspaper The Metro. "I didn't have a clue what they weretalking about and I had to check my bank account online to understand what was going on."
After he figured it out, things didn't get much better.
"I was so mad. I'm 32-years-old, why would Apple think I would be spending thousands ofpounds on buying dinosaurs and upgrading a game?" he said.
But don't worry — this story has a happy ending. Despite initially being told by an AppleSupport team member that there was no guarantee he could get a refund, Shugaa eventuallygot all his money back, which is lucky for Faisall (considering he would've gotten zero presentsand been in even more trouble otherwise). Shugaa, for his part, says that he hopes Apple doessomething to ensure that no other parents endure the same headache.
Apple, for its part, recommends that parents not share their password. Or at the very least,make sure that your child is using your iDevice under careful supervision.
