5-Year-Old Goes On A Wild Shopping Spree On Grandma’s Amazon Account, Totalling $960

A five year old named Alijah, who hails from Tampa, Florida, went on a massive $960 shopping spree on Amazon. His grandmother, Maria Celestine, was out of town on vacation, and her card info was saved on his kindle.

Maria Celestine told People

“He was home with my parents, his great-grandparents. He was clicking on multiple toys, including swords and guns, he liked. My mother didn’t think anything of it.”

And next thing she knew, there were 40 boxes from Amazon sitting outside her front door.

People thought Alijah was a legend in the making…

But others that that Alijah was about to be in a world of trouble…

Luckily, Maria Celestine just returned the Kindle.
