But, what caught out attention was an Indian teenager who has blown INR 1.6mn (roughly $ 21,425) on in-app purchases and upgrades.

Not only did this teen spend money on himself, but he also purchased upgrades for his friends and team members.

This information came into light after the 17-year-old’s parents access his three bank accounts to view the transactions he had made.

To avoid being caught, the boy reportedly rotated the transactions from account to account.

He even lied to his parents about spending a large sum of time on his phone to study, whereas he was playing the game for several hours a day.

Moreover, it was reported that he would take his mother’s phone as well to binge play the action game as well as delete transaction messages from the bank.

Another boy, 15-YO from Punjab, also reportedly spent over INR 2 Lakh of his grandfather’s money on purchases.

Reportedly, the boy started to play the game in January is said to have been trained by a senior from school to make the payments via bank accounts.

These are just a couple of cases from many in which children have committed such fraud with their parents and relatives to steal money for the game.
