Indian teenager spends father’s saving of Rs. 1.6 million on PUBG mobile

A 17-year old boy from India spent Rs. 1.6 million on PUBG Mobile for in-app purchases of game cosmetics, battle passes, ammunition, and other items. The money that was used by the boy was set aside as savings for the father’s medical expenses. The parents thought the boy was using the smartphone for online courses during the lockdown.

The boy would keep deleting messages with transaction details and alter between two different bank accounts to avoid exhausting them. The parents only found out when they received bank statements for each of their accounts. The boy had also emptied his mother’s provident fund and his own account.
