You'd think they would be willing to refund a little bit of it, taking away some of the stuff from his FarmVille because of it. I remember when a teen racked up thousands of dollars in text messaging not too long ago and the company (Verizon I think, not sure) was willing to knock off a little bit from the ridiculous bill.

The card issuer will only do it if the mother reports her son to the authorities for it
What do the authorities have do with it? I've read several reports of people doing chargebacks and the authorities have no need to intervene. The worst that can happen is having the virtual goods removed from the account so she can get her money back.

The worst aspect of WoW, farming, turned into a social game based soley on farming...

Sigh why do people do this...
That's pretty opinion based.
I enjoy farming, be it gold/items or crops, so long as it's meaningful to me.

that is really sad, not that the kid blew that much money but he knew exactly how to use the credit card and was able to get hands on it without help and that he could of at least spent it on something worth wile instead of a stupid farm.... makes you wonder what this world is coming too..

Ironic thing is his FB account was disabled so he doesn't even have access to any of the virtual stuff he brought anymore.

That's all people do is judge each other. Get used to it. But if you don't like hearing the truth you'll never get well. It's an addiction to find virtual rewards meaningful. Just because you spent time getting them doesn't make it VALUABLE. Farmers are basically real life drug junkies...

The "Don't judge me" was a joke. That addiction bit is garbage, seeing as anything we do EVER is pretty much for enjoyment. Farming provides some people with a sense of satisfaction for the work they did, which is in fact valuable to them. Your best memories are worth no money, so by your logic they're not valuable at all.

lmao i'm actually very interested in seeing his farm. Although i taught most farmville players are adults, i would not be surprised if MOM was the actual spender here and throwing all blame on the child! lmao I play all of zyngas games but this is just too funny..

And this is why I don't play these stupid *bleep*ing games to begin with... there is noooo point to them... Now if only I could get this through to my mom.... at the rate she goes, it's only a matter of time before she becomes the next addict story.
