I want the Pink one, Mommy!!
 
Three-year-old Jack Neal is "a whiz on the PC," his mother Rachael tells the BBC. Such a whiz, it seems, that he bought a pink Nissan on eBay. Not a toy, mind you. A real, $17,000 car.

It seems his parents' eBay password was still active when Jack clicked on "buy it now." Fortunately, the seller has a sense of humor. He canceled the deal.

And now Jack's parents have parental controls up and running on their computer.

Yeah, but I wonder what kind of feedback he gave them!

Imagine being so egotistical, negligent, uninformed, naive, and generally stupid as to leave your computer logged into an account where anyone could do whatever they wanted with it...

Sounds like buyers remorse to me! - Blame it on the kid!

I've dealt with enough e-bay low-lifes to know the lies they are capable of!
