A mother from Westport, Massachusetts, was shocked when she received text messages notifying her of purchases worth $3,922 (Rs 3.21 lakh approx.) on Amazon at 2 am.
Initially, she assumed her account was hacked but soon realized that her five-year-old daughter Lila Varisco had used her mobile phone to order toys and boots.
Lila had purchased 10 children’s dirt bikes and a children’s two-seat ride-on Jeep, along with 10 pairs of white cowgirl boots in women’s size 7.
Surprisingly, the boots were also the same size as the mothers. Nunes could cancel the boots order, but the Jeep arrived on March 31.
Fortunately, all the companies agreed to process returns. Nunes, who frequently uses Amazon, will now double-check her order history. The incident highlights the need for parents to be vigilant when giving mobile phones to their children.
