If you thought it was a good idea letting your little kids run rampant on your phone you might want to rethink it - because they might be racking up a hefty shopping bill on your online accounts. 

Meet Caitlin - the 6-year-old who did exactly this. 


For Caitlin’s birthday, her mum let her order a Barbie on Amazon.

Caitlin, being a little scammer, later asked her mum if she could go back onto the site to see when her Barbie would be delivered. 

Trusting her innocent little child, her mum let her back on, but it was then that Caitlin carried out her master plan. 

When the delivery from Amazon arrived the next day, her mum got the shock of her life as box after box after box was unloaded from the car, according to BuzzFeed News

It turns out that Caitlin hadn’t been checking the delivery, she’d jumped online to order US$350 worth of toys, video games AND board games (roughly AU$480). 

Caitlin’s cousin Ria Diyaolu told the site, "She knew exactly what she was doing when she did it.

"I was so surprised that a 6-year-old knew how to do one-click, next-day shipping.”


This little scammer in the making didn’t get to keep her haul, with her mum sending everything but the Barbie back to Amazon. 

Needless to say, Caitlin’s been banned from the internet for a while.
