Facebook Is Sued over Children’s Online Shopping Sprees

A court ruled that Facebook must face a nationwide class-action lawsuit, where parents demand the company to provide refunds after it allowed children to spend their parents’ money without permission.

The court pointed out that the number of victims might reach hundreds of thousands. All of them may press their claim that the social media company has to change the way it handles online transactions by children. At the same time, it was ruled that the plaintiffs couldn’t demand refunds as a group under US Supreme Court precedent, because the amounts would vary from case to case. Nevertheless, the plaintiffs could still seek individual refunds. A trial is scheduled for October 2015.

The first lawsuit was brought 3 years ago, complaining that Facebook allowed children to use their parents’ bank cards to buy its own virtual currency, after which the company refused the refunds pointing at its “all sales a re final” policy. In respond, the social network claimed that plaintiffs’ claims were too disparate and the proposed injunction would not address them.

However, the state law protects parents and their children when the latter “occasionally” buy things they should not. That lawsuit was launched by two families: in one of them, a mother let a child to spend $20 on the game, but was later charged several hundred dollars for in-app purchases, which the child thought he made with virtual currency. The second family claimed that a child took their bank card without permission and spent more than a thousand dollars. As you know, children under 13 cannot sign up for Facebook, according to the network’s policies.

sumi avatarGood, I dont like Facebook anyways and more security involving childrens activities should be handled with more structure. I hope the parents get everything they are owed from FB plus more for the trouble it caused. And when is xbox going to do something? Cards are linked to childrens accounts and automatic payments. Surprised they haven't been brought into the light yet. Everytime I add my card to pay my nephews account, they bill me future months If I don't rush to the site and remove auto payments. And caught him making a few small purchases off my card without my permission. After calling xbox they could care none the less and companies like this use this strategy because they know kids will screw up with having cards in their possession. FB got called out and hopefully xbox is next with their no confirmations and auto ****! lol

chico149 avatarI can see it both ways, but these adults also need to pay more attention to the things these kids are doing. A tablet, computer, or anything that has any kind of gaming on it is not a baby sitter. Know what your kids are doing! You also need to teach your children how money works!

I also think these 'FREEMIUM' games are a horrible marketing ploy. Hopefully something will eventually be done about this shady business practice...

ZerlindaX avatarI don't really like Facebook either, but I can't see how
Facebook should be responsible for Children’s misuse their
parents bank card. If parents was paying more attention to
their Children, this wouldn't happen. What is a 13 year old
doing with their parents bank card anyway? Good luck in
trying to sue.

bone111 avatarI think it's wrong how they let you spend 100s on a crap game on something stupid like skipping 24 hours for a plant grow. I don't feel guilty sharing a apps that makes it all free

trialNerror avatarWhen I was 13 I used my parents credit card to "verify age" to look at porn sites.
What a pile of trouble that got me into.
Buying virtual currency on a retarded social network?

Stupid people breeding to make stupid kids.

gypsywarrior avatarHAHA! What a load of Bottocks. Bad parenting is the only thing at play here. When a "Good" parent teaches a child to shoot. They first educate them about the weapon they'll be handling. Teach them how it works and all the potential dangers. Including the morality of fire-arms handling. Then when all is good, they safety a weapon and under close supervision and care, they allow the child to fire down the range. Any lazy,scumbag parent who has had their card misused in this way on FB or XBOX is the kinda parent who just tosses their child a loaded 45 with a defective safety catch and no instruction and says see you at lunch and you better have me a rabbit or ur not sleeping with ur sister tonight.

No avatar@9 wth has this got to do with guns?....americans and their guns and their bombs lol...when a good parent teaches a child to shoot?...fail....a good parent would NOT put a gun in the hand of their child...a car would have been a better analogy but hey...cowboys lol

gypsywarrior avatar@11 A good parent tries to teach a child everything they can. If a child shows interest in a subject matter. then the sooner you teach them, the better. A child's mind holds information better. Many professionals in all fields. started learning their trade/craft/sport at a young age. Chris kyle (Deadliest sniper in american history) learned to shoot as a child, on hunting trips with his pappy. So your narrow-minded crap spouting has just made lifted your veil. Hi dummy

Montyno1 avatarwhy do some parents give their credit card to their kids, along with the pin number, just to shut them up.
Then whine about these sites charging them, as a parent they should show more responsibility.
