9-year-old Susan Wilson took it upon herself to make sure her family went on a family vacation to Disneyland Paris.
Her dad Ian was sleeping soundly when Susan grabbed his phone and began searching around online. She ended up on PayPal, with a little bit of guesswork, she managed to figure out his password and then access his money in the account. With the money, she purchased a luxurious vacation to Disneyland.
Her spending included:
- $473 on flights and gift card to a hotel
- $463.95 on tickets to Disneyland Paris theme park tickets + the Disneyland Express train
- $253.48 on a VIP family tour of the Eiffel Tower
Eventually, PayPal offered a goodwill gesture and said that it was simply a matter of “friendly fraud” and refunded all of the money to the family.
