A dad was stunned to discover that his nine-year-old daughter had booked herself on a holiday to Disneyland Paris for a cool 1,000 pounds (approximately Rs. 85,000) after guessing his PayPal password. Ian Wilson of Immingham, UK, was fast asleep when his daughter Susan went on an extravagant midnight spending spree, reports the Daily Mail.
The schoolgirl planned the whole thing down to the last detail, spending 400 pounds on flights and a hotel gift card, 214.08 pounds on a VIP trip up the Eiffel Tower and 381.84 pounds on theme park tickets and the Disneyland Express train due to depart the next day.
Fortunately for her dad, who noticed the transaction after three days, PayPal eventually refunded the money after first refusing to do so, reports The Sun.
"I don't think Susan really realises the enormity of what she had done," says Mr Wilson. "She's said sorry and promised 10 pence to help pay it back," he adds.
According to the Daily Mail, Mr Wilson is now urging other parents to ensure their devices are pin-protected and kept away from kids.-NDTV
