Xbox Bill Refunded After Teen Racked Up $8K In Charges

This kid is lucky that both Microsoft and his dad were cool about him running up a $8,200 bill. I'm not so sure I would've handled that so well.

"I hope we have warned enough people. This is not just a game when it can upset a whole family and endanger our children with making mistakes," Lance Perkins told CBC News in a text message. "I hope there are more safeguards put in place for credit card holders." On Dec. 23, he got a bill for $7,625.88 after his 17-year-old son used his credit card to make in-game purchases for one of the FIFA series of soccer games. He later noticed previous Xbox charges, bringing the total to $8,206.43.
