    Okay, so somehow the child has an opportunity to use her PC unsupervised and ended up bidding on a vehicle. That's just an indication that people are leaving their personal and financial information vulnerable. Personally, I would have made her take responsibility for the purchase, since she was so negligient v_v

    Yeah, that's a good idea. I'm going to make you take responsibility for having your computer on, which in turn leaves it more vulnerable to hackers than if it was off. I'm taking your computer away, it's only fair after all.

    Do you have any three year old siblings or children? They can be awfully smart on a computer, and you wouldn't really expect it. It's pretty fucking stupid of you to make a comment like she should pay $9,000 in money she probably doesn't have since she has a kid, for a car she doesn't want.

    "An opportunity to use the computer unsupervised?" What the hell do you think parents do, shut off their computer every time they stand up so that their toddlers can't buy cars online? Do you think a mother can keep track of what a kid is doing at every given moment, especially if she has two or more children? Christ, what a blockheaded thing to say.

    Yeah, it's real goddamn negligent to assume that your 3 year old child isn't going to go steal personal information and buy stuff online. What nerve that mother has. Honestly I haven't been so pissed off by such a string of stupid statements in a while. I suggest you have a kid or two. Rather, please don't. The world doesn't need more stupid people.

    Computer wiz 3 year old with mother knowing that but she left her password on the computer. Pretty stupid. Plus, if he's so smart then why'd he buy the car?

    I live with my 1 year old niece and 3 year old nephew and have 4 computers. They don't have access to them under any circumstance. It's just common sense that children will get into things (because kids will be kids), so the parent has to ensure that their children. If they were to get on one of my PC's and were to break it then I wouldn't blame them but myself.

    And yes, I'm the one who takes care of them for most of the day because the mother is not present and my brother works during the day, so I'm the one who feeds, cloth and entertains them.

    And please, my mother raised me and my 5 siblings (my 2 brothers and I were one year apart) on her own. All your doing is making assumptions about a peron's home life you know nothing of. So, in essence I'm talking from personal experience, there's a level of accountability when you have children (at the very least acknowledgement and an apology).

    Nice, go the three-year-old kid. Especially since it's pink.

    Kids these days are getting smarter with technology. Not just any three year old can search for a pink car and buy it.

    I'm not suprised he managed to do this. It's not hard at all, even for a 3 year old.

    This story would grab more attention if the child was either:

    A) Raped by the man selling the car, the rape would have to be very explicit, to garner any attention these days.

    B) Visiting hardcore child porn websites.

    C) Getting his head severed, and served to his family.

    D) Nekkid.
