Proof of Purchase
Federal Trade Commission v. Amazon.com Inc.,Case No. 2:14-cv-01038 District Court for the Western District of Washington at Seattle
Amazon didn’t require a password for in-app purchases, which allowed children to spend hundreds of dollars playing “free” games by buying virtual goods—like coins, stars, and pet food—without their parents’ permission. A federal court found Amazon liable for these charges and ordered the company to provide refunds.
