The mother of the child thought the purchases were fraud, before realizing that her son had spent this amount of money buying items on the game. The players can buy various items in the game like gliders, outfits, weapon wraps, and pickaxes in the game.

Some items cost up to US$20 each, which makes collecting a very expensive hobby.

His parents sent an email to Fornite’s company to handle this issue, but they did not receive any response from the company.

Then they filed a lawsuit to the state court. Finally, Epic Games responded to them and refunded all the money for the family.

Epic Games will hardly miss the amount of US$1,200 because its earnings from Fortnite in 2018 reached an incredible high.

Spending out-of-hand money is becoming another worry for little Fortnite players’ parents, besides sexual predators who use chatbox in the game to find their victims.
