Anyone can lie about their age online.

And that's a little problem that can easily be fixed with the right tools.

Issue a coded number on a card linked to your birth date only, with a personal PIN that you have to provide to verify your age online to every citizen.

Kids can "steal" the parent's card ( or memorize the code ), but without knowing the PIN, they're fucked.

The seller's system automatically checks the coded number against the birth date database, if you're not 18, it refuses to accept the order.

There, easy simple fix.

Sure the parent can give the PIN, but then he'd have to be aware of what is happening with the kid, leaving room for PARENTING to happen.
How is a seller going to know for sure if an adult is involved at all with 100% certainty? If someone wants to file charges against a game dev for selling to a minor, then they need to prove that the dev knew for sure who was at the device that made the purchase. The only way a company could do that is if they had access to a webcam or forward facing camera on a tablet. Which is a major privacy concern. That's if the camera exists in the first place......and the user doesn't have paper taped over it.
I would love to see more parents doing their job. Not going to happen any time soon.

17-year-old uses his dad's credit card to spend $7,600 playing 'FIFA'
Gotta love a 17 year old who at best spent $99 seventy separate times saying, "I only thought I did it once." Uh, yeah, sure... I'd actually be interested to see where that kid is 5-10 years from now. I did some stupid stuff as a teenager, 99.5% of teenagers do stupid stuff, but that kid has my stunts beat in spades...

Credit card companies won't allow that. They oppose anything that makes a purchase slower and have people abandon impulse purrchases midstream. And they own the politicians. Cheaper to pay a few thousand when someone complains and not lose millions in impulse purchases.

Sorry to tell you kids are not dumb, I took my mothers credit card at 5 years old to buy a toy car from a store when she didn't buy it for me as a kid. Kids are not totally stupid.

Children make a coked up ferret look like a quadriplegic.

Epic Games Refunds Family After Son Spends $1,200 on Fortnite

12 year old spends nearly £700 on video game in three days

17-year-old uses his dad's credit card to spend $7,600 playing 'FIFA'

As for shit, they don't call them diaper dirtiers for nothing.


Yeah, but did the child have a credit card, or were the parents negligent? Children cant buy loot boxes, their parents buy them for them.

If a kid swipes $20 from mom's purse, and goes into a store to buy a pack of scratch lotto tickets, is it the parents fault for failing to keep money out of reach from the child?

The bigger picture is that the child should not have access to a consumable product that presents gambling as entertainment. So the sales clerk at the store will not sell it to the child; we as a society made laws to protect children because they are vulnerable to gambling entertainment due to a lack of understanding the value of money.
A gas station clerk can look at the kid and tell. A game Dev nor publisher can tell who's at the keyboard or tablet. Anyone can lie about their age online.
Besides, it's not the kids that are the big money makers. It's adults. The minors just make good news pieces.

That's politics for you. "Protecting" children. Won't stop loot boxes.
They're not even trying. Just looking to earn some votes off of a hot topic.
