  1. Purchases by child


    Hi.

    I have discovered that my daughter who is 8 yrs old has made 20 purchases on her x box for fortnite v bucks totalling nearly £500. She has done this by making payment by having it added to my phone bill which I have only just discovered yesterday.

    I submitted a refund request to microsoft and they have refunded 10 of the purchases. These are ones which were made in the last 14 days. They say the other 10 cannot be seen on the account however I can see them on there under the orders section.

    I am presuming they will not refund as it has gone past the 14 day deadline.

    Does anyone know if I am still able to get these refunded as I cannot afford £250 extra on my bill. My daughter has been educated on this matter and it will never happen again however i need to resolve this issue quickly.

    Thankyou in advance

    :)

    You can't change a child account into adult. It gets updated automatically from the servers

    I can see them in MS billing history and also same corresponding order numbers on my phone bill.

    Microsoft have refunded all purchases from past 14 days but say there are no others on the account. They are clear to see but I think they are referring to just the ones eligible for a refund from last 14 days

    While I can't directly help with the refund, as we in this forum here are "only" gamers like you or your daughter and not actual Microsoft Xbox employees, I'd like to make you aware of a few settings on the console and your and your daughter's accounts to
    prevent unauthorized purchases in the future.

    First of all: Make sure that you did NOT set up your own adult account to be used by your daughter. You as a parent should have your own adult account, and your daughter should have her own child account (the difference between adult and child account is
    determined by the birthdate you enter during account creation and can't be changed afterwards).

    When you have created a child account, you can add that child account to your parent account by signing in with your parent account at
    https://account.microsoft.com/family and adding your daughter's child account to your family.

    That way you can set up certain restrictions that limit what your child is (not) allowed to do on Xbox Live.

    Also follow the
    instructions on this website to prevent unauthorized purchases in the future
    .

    As for help on your refunds: You should find all purchases being made on https://account.microsoft.com/billing/orders with the appropriate order number. This should
    help the support find the purchases that still need to be refunded.

    I'll cross my fingers that this issue gets resolved for you, and that you can set up your and your daughter's account to prevent unauthorized purchases in the future.

    When you say you see them on your account do you mean you see them on your phone bill? or in your MS billing history by going to account.microsoft.com
