    If you have money to spare/left over, then it's alright.
    Obviously in this case, it's not.

    If you spend any cash on FarmVille you know you've already lost the game. Not the game of FarmVille, but the game of life in general.

    And what a dumb mother. My mom usually lets me make online purchases with her card but I'm responsible enough to only buy what I know I can afford (I usually just give the money to her so she can deposit it). Even when I was 12 I'm sure I was smart enough not to do this dumb crap.

    People actually buy things with money on this? Nothing you can buy on this is worth the money.

    Never got into it, just like the Pet one was a watered down Animal Crossing, this is just a watered down Harvest Moon only with less point.

    The Mrs plays it a lot, she even made another account for my cat just so she can cheat on it. All I hear is her clicking constantly on it, noob bitch...I mean bless her.

    I remember my idiot of a younger brother doing the exact same thing, except it was for a game called "Adventure Quest" or something, and the "debt" wasn't that large. He kept denying that he did it but it was clearly stated that it was his account. I said "fuck just ban his goddamn account" and now it's banned, and my mother was actually stupid enough to half-believe my brother. Lolstupidkid.

    First comment on that article echoes pretty much my sentiments entirely.

    lol omg, I was using paypal when I was 13-12 with my mom's credit card, I always told her what I spend money on, and it was usually REAL things lol... I'm so shocked, how much stupid can a kid be...

    P.S. I do spend money (my own) nowdays playing WoW, but that's nothing compared to a half-assed harvest moon game.

    My little brother does this with World of Warcraft. And he gets off the hook on a regular basis. It's amazing how parents can just let their kids get ahold of their credit cards...

    Back in my day, we didn't get to use credit cards at the age of 12. We either have to buy prepaid cards, or just suck it up and accept that you will either never get to buy it, or someone else will sell it to you for virtual currency.

    In all seriousness, I wonder why the mother even entrusted her credit card to the kid, especially since he's only 12. If it were me though, I'd be spending that money on something materialistic other than something virtual (Especially if that virtual item is consumable).
