    Angry 6 Year Old Sons In-App purchases

    In need of some help. My son has cleared out my bank account with making in app purchases on a game called redline rush.
    220.53 he's spent
    I've been on google wallet for some help and was looking for a phone number but there was no chance of that! They've said to contact the developer directly (crescent moon) which I have done. I don't hold out much hope as they are not a developer that has any certified apps on Apples iTunes.
    Any experience of this and advice would be much appreciated. Not that my sone deserves feeding but it's unfair on his little sister to suffer for his stupidity!!!!!
    Thanks in advance

    Open the settings in the Play Store app and check the box that requires a PIN for purchases.
    Nook Color - CM10.1 ( Jelly Bean 4.2.2) on eMMC
    Google Galaxy Nexus - stock Jelly Bean 4.3
    Galaxy Nexus 10 - stock KitKat 4.4.3
    Galaxy Nexus 7 (2nd Generation) - stock KitKat 4.4.3

    Yes, definitely do this. My phone asks for my Google account password for any purchase, every time. Your situation sucks, but it will make for a good learning experience as far as app purchase security goes.
