17 Year Old spends his Parents’ life savings on PUBG Mobile!

There have been many cases of addiction towards PUBG, but this incident takes that craze and addiction towards PUBG to another level. In a bizarre incident, a teenager based in Punjab, India ended up spending 16 lakh rupees (21500 USD approx) on PUBG Mobile. He allegedly used this money to buy in-game items, passes, not just for himself but also for his team-mates.

The incident came to light when his parents looked into the bank statements. According to his parents, the teenager would take the mobile under the pretext of online classes.

The boy’s father, a government employee, said 

I had saved the money for my medical needs and my son’s future. During the lockdown, I was staying at the place of my posting, while my son was staying with my wife here. He used her mobile phone to make all transactions and would delete the message regarding the amount debited from the account.

After the incident came to light the father has apparently made his son work in a scooter repair shop, to make him realize the importance of money and hard work, since the money which was spent by the teenager is unlikely to be returned.

I just can’t let him sit idle at home and cannot give him a mobile phone even for studying. He is working at a scooter repair shop so that he realizes how hard it is to earn money. I am hopeless now as the money was saved for my son’s future.”

The incident should be an eye-opener for everyone when it comes to addiction towards games like PUBG Mobile, we at CSGG love video games, but video games are not everything. Parents should always monitor their child’s online activity and this should not be neglected, games are not the problem, addiction towards them is. At the same time, our education system should also promote financial literacy, which teach the youth about the importance of money, investing, etc.

So what do you think about this incident? Do let us know in the comments!
