    There's a story about Smurf Village floating around right now. Similar thing, parent downloads app for kid, kid plays it, kid buys a gazillion dollars worth of in app purchases, SCAM SCAM SCAM.

    I downloaded the Smurf village for my niece to play with, but she knows not to buy anything in there, she is 4! And she asks for stuff but I say no, just use what you have, It's not rocket science to make sure they don't spend money in these apps.

    I know my father's password to his account and I don't have my own... That was the case I was referring to in my original post: "What if they know the password?" By the way, I'll admit I was wrong about someone recommending it to me, but the game's still a scam, however you get a hold of it, or what you do in the game. You might be bypassing the problem, but that doesn't mean there's no problem.

    But the truth is there is no "Problem" it's inherently the fault of the user or parent who doesn't give themselves time to read what the game is all about, Like I keep saying, responsibility!!!!!

    DO YOU NOT GET THE POINT I WAS TRYING TO MAKE? JUST BECAUSE YOU BYPASS THE PROBLEM DOESN'T MEAN THERE ISN'T ONE!!!!!!!!!!
