During Christmas last month, Lance Perkins got a bill for $7,625.88 after his 17-year-old son used his credit card to make in-game purchases for FIFA.
“It floored me. Literally floored me, when I’d seen what I was being charged”
“There will never be another Xbox system — or any gaming system — in my home.”
Microsoft investigated the issue and decided and refund the whole amount. Lance is now pleased with Microsoft’s decision and he hopes there are more safeguards put in place for credit card holders. This is not the first time Microsoft has decided to refund transactions made by kids and teens, we have seen several similar cases in the past.
