Arkansas mother Bethany Howell lost $250 this Christmas. She has fingerprint protection for her phone, but her daughter figured out a way around that. While her mother was sleeping, 6-year-old Ashlynd used her mother’s thumb to unlock the phone. Then, she ordered $250 worth of Pokemon merchandise.
At first, her parents thought they had been hacked. Then, they realized what happened when Ashlynd told them she was just shopping. Amazon let her parents return four out of the thirteen items. They told their daughter that Santa found out what she wanted for Christmas.
Ashlynd told her mom:
“No, Mommy, I was shopping. But don’t worry—everything that I ordered is coming straight to the house.”
You would think that fingerprint locks would be enough, but they were no match for this determined kid. Maybe her mother should go back to using a passcode. This kid is going places; don’t underestimate a kid who wants Pokemon toys. She may be a difficult teenager in ten years.
