Who?

His name has Harbinger in it and his Profile pic shows the Reaper Harbinger, I put up a picture up of Commander Shepard, who is essentially Harbingers enemy.

If they read wot forums they WILL find out :D You will get grounded. The only thing that can save you is that you tell them that you paid a prostitute this way. This will totaly work, trust me, I'm from the internetz.

Short answer: Yes they will find out.

 

So,

Come clean with your parents. It may not be so good when you do it but they may trust and respect you more in future.

 

When I was your age I did a slightly similar thing.

I have been on a pay as you go tariff ever since (No Internet) which I have to pay for from my allowance.

 

Screwing up is part of growing up (How often have I heard that). It's how you deal with it that counts. 

i.e. Learn from your mistakes! (or preferably, someone else's mistakes.) 

 

My 15 year old brother is really bad at grasping this and is forever in trouble with our parents. I have way more freedom than he does.

It isn't a boy thing as my 13 and 11 year old brothers are OK.

 

£100 on computer games. Even if it was my own money, if I did that without permission, I would be grounded for a month minimum.

 

Heck, Crabtree and Evelyn soap was a hard sell to my dad.

If you have purchased via your Mobile device then it will appear as an added on cost to your contract monthly charge as 'Wargaming.net/Ltd' £5, that's what it looks like for O2 and Orange, not sure about the rest.

 

unless your phone provider decided to be cheeky and just name the bill charge as 'XXX' then you are gonna get grounded for a while :tongue:

I'm sorry to tell you saxsan4 but it's the cellar and the cat o' nine tails for you again.

 

You remember what happened the last couple of times when you wet the bed and didn't eat your carrots?

 

This will be ten times worse.

As a parent and husband to a wife that would kill me *if* she found out i spent moneyz on internet games... i'd say you *have* to be a little bit more careful next time!!

First.. Always deny everything.. It wasn't me / phone got hacked etc.

Second.. Always deny everything!

Third: Always de..  well you get it.

Fourth, but this is some future advice for when you get married yourself..

- Get a creditcard with a nice bonus/reward program and make sure the missus gets all the rewards (sunglasses vouchers etc.) Tell her a creditcard is very useful on holidays, or when you get stranded with cholera on a tropical island in the Pacific

- Make sure you login to the credicard provider portal and tick the box where you only get online receipts, make sure none get sent by mail. Mail is bad.. Mail tends to get openend by significant others before you get home yourself

- Spend money on premium tenks and mad goldz like there's no tomorrow.. And yes,, you will get buyers remorse after you get an FCM 50t, but do *not* ragesell it.. It will probably become just as good a collector's item as a Type 59 in the near future.. Really! Useless big soft tanks will be the new meta in a couple of months and you wil pwn the battlefields once more!

- Profit! And keep giving those rewards to the missus, shell love you for it!

Man you are so busted. :trollface:

 

Seriously though mate. Most parents know what is happening with money right down to the last penny. The reason is having kids is very expensive. According to the treasury it will cost the average couple over £250,000.00p to get a kid from age 0 to age 18. I don't get the way the treasury came up with this number and it looks a bit op to me. But when I was with my X. Her two kids cost me over £10,000.00p each per year. So yea your parents are going to notice and if you aren't allowed to spend money in this way I would suggest you ask your self. Why you are taking the piss by disrespecting the people that love you the most?

I bought £3 worth of gold (by accident, it was just a test) with my phone.

-

I came clean and paid my Mom back the £3, and I got absolutely no punishment. Take into account that my Mom is very, very strict.

They will eventually. And even if they don't, it's just better if in the future you ask them first.

I know someone who stole their parent's credit cards and bought £1000's of stuff for an online game so they could get everything. A week after they got the stuff their account was banned so they did it again. I think they have done it around 4 times before giving up.

You are not safe, buddy. Your crap just hasn't caught up with you yet, but with the attitude you're showing, sooner or later it will.

 

I had a younger friend who played this game and constantly bought small things, which I kept telling him not to buy, until they amounted up to a hefty sum. Suddenly he wasn't able to play anymore. Turns out his parents took his PC, phone and internet access because he embezzled about 50€.

Now he has to pay for the stuff he took for granted.

 

Maybe you're parents will get SMRT and figure out that 14-y-o's just cannot be trusted :tongue:
