Many game companies require parental consent for the use of minors under the rules, and minors are protected by checking the age on the game screen and setting the usage limit accordingly. It is likely that the parent’s responsibility of managing the card will be in question and that you will not be able to cancel the charges. Explain the situation to the credit card company and consult with the Consumer Affairs Center.
