And you thought that DS games got addictive, wait till you read this: Farmville debt, by a 12 year old boy
There are millions of users of Farmville on Facebook and although this is a pretty old Mashable blog post I thought it worked really well on my blog right now, as I’m going to blog about 2 games I have been playing pretty seriously recently, WITHOUT using REAL money.
Either you love it or you hate it but Farmville has become pretty successful over the duration of its life so far. The Zynga game is all about growing, collecting and harvesting the many delightful things that you aquire throughout your playing time with the game.
BUT, HOW ON EARTH can someone get that addicted to rack up a £900 bill through the use of his own debit card and then his mothers!!! Surely his mother should have realised sooner when over £600 went missing out her account?
This just proves how inexperienced that mothers are to children using these games, but the worrying factor is how these kids can obtain the debit/credit cards so easily without being caught! His mothers worry is stated here in the online version of the Guardian newspaper.
He wont be playing that game anymore!
