Holy hell, I know people addicted to the game, managing in excess of 6 farms at once, but this is ridiculous.

The card issuer will only do it if the mother reports her son to the authorities for it, which she won't do in fear of negatively affecting his future. Even though it would only amount to a caution that would disappear at 18.
