A desperate mother has condemned Microsoft after her 11-year-old son racked up a $1,000 debt on her debit card - through his Xbox. Brendan Jordan racked up a bill of $1,082.52 on his Xbox without realising all the purchases were being charged to his mum Dawn Matthews' card. The schoolboy made the payments to buy accessories and new games on his console after it saved the details of a previously registered card.
Single mum-of-two Dawn, 37, from Strood, Kent, has now complained to Microsoft but claims the computer giant is ignoring her.
She said: 'When I put my card details in 18 months ago I thought it was just for his membership to play online with his friends.
She entered her debit card details into the family Xbox to pay for Brendan's subscription to his favourite game.
However, Brendan repeatedly clicked on additions and extensions - racking up a £1082.52 debt to her account over six months.
Microsoft say they offer parental control accounts so parents like Dawn can monitor what their children are spending.
Dawn wants her experience to be a lesson to other parents and blames Microsoft for making it 'too easy' for her son to spend the money.
