Boy spends over 1000 on Xbox Live, mother blames Jim Sterling

   0


An eleven-year-old boy racked up an almighty 1,082.52 on his mother's debit card after an Xbox Live spending spree. Rather than blame the child, or herself for being so stupid, the mother in question has scolded Jim Sterling for letting this happen.

"When I put my card details in 18 months ago I thought it was just for his membership to play online with his friends," said 37-year-old Dawn Jordan. 'I work two jobs just to look after my family and pay the bills so I cannot afford all these extortionate charges. A thousand pounds isn't that much to people like Jim Sterling, but for a single mum it is a lot of money that I don't have.

"The bank and Jim Sterling are blaming each other and no one is helping me. It has taken me ages to permanently get rid of my card details from the website."

While I sympathize with Dawn on the Herculean effort it takes to remove credit card details, I couldn't give a crap about the rest of her problems. You don't put debit card details onto a service you know nothing about, and you certainly don't then let an eleven-year-old boy play around with it. Don't blame an internet sensation because you don't know how to look after your money.
