6-Year-Old Uses Sleeping Mom’s Thumbprint To Buy $250 Worth Of Gifts On Amazon

Sick of trying to be good all year just so Santa will deliver your presents? Well, one sneaky 6-year-old from Maumelle, Arkansas found a clever way around that problem. She simply used her sleeping mom’s thumbprint to access Amazon and buy herself $250 of Christmas presents instead!

Little Ashlynd Howell waited for her mom Bethany to nod off while watching a movie together before embarking upon her crafty scheme. Using her mom’s thumbprint to unlock her phone, she opened the Amazon app and proceeded to buy herself 13 different Pokémon toys. When Bethany saw the order notifications the next day, she thought she’d been hacked until she asked her daughter if she knew anything about it. “Yeah mommy, I was shopping!” said Ashlynd according to the Daily Mail. Her mom was only allowed to return four of the items, but Ashlynd still ended up getting way more for Christmas than Santa intended! (h/t)

This is not cute or funny. That child needs to be taught what she did was wrong and never to do anything like that again. Encouraging behavior like this will result in her growing up to be a self entitled brat...just what this world has enough of.

She may grow up to be President of the US.... Or a high-paid CEO.
