Authorities should also look on other children and baby games for girls that do similar scheme. My kids are fund of playing in-apps purchases games on their iPad, a 9 and a 4yrs old kids are fun playing, but like what others suspects to most of the in-app purchases games, there are hidden agendas that I think need to investigate. Like this "bait games" scheme, I am pretty sure that there are more out there doing the same. Instead of apps, I let them play responsive web games instead like those at this page

I think that the whole concept of in App perches is totally unfair because it gives people that have $$$ an advantage over the ones don't . Especially on paid games that work with Game Center or other way of Internet competition! Exaple: Most Wanted is a $6 car racing game, I admit it worth every penny but put $30 more and you can buy faster cars. turbo charge and more extras which let you win over the people that can't or won't pay extra money for an already paid game. And it's the same with Asphalt 7 also a beautiful car racing game which was a paid App but now is free unless you go for the in app perches and give them $100 of real money to get 13 million dollars of game money to have the advantage over the competition, so YES it ain't fair and I see how you can get addicted to those IN APP $$$ spending.

It's about time this happens! We had heartbroken scenes with our ten year old over hundreds of dollars she claimed she did not buy, and someone stealing from us without her knowing what went on. Then, calling and talking after many attempts with a human voice at Apple they in part credited and reimbursed some of the outrageous charges, a bit rude, doubting our honesty, but nevertheless. In January. What we didn't appreciate was that we were made feel we actually did try to cheat and our integrity was questioned, and that this is a unique case of complaint... In the meantime, a class action suit was going on! GET RID of these practice of dishonest child seduction games, show some integrity !
