If you've played any "free-to-play" games, then you'll probably know that many of them definitely aren't free. While some of them might steal your information, many of them actually try to get you to spend more than you'd spend on the same app if you paid upfront.
A kid with a smartphone or tablet who doesn't understand how money works could play these "free" games and end up spending hundreds of their parents' dollars.
Over the past few years, the Federal Trade Commission has fielded hundreds of complaints from the parents of kids who accidentally spent money on in-app purchases.
It's been almost a year since Apple finally folded under pressure from the FTC. The company agreed to a $32.5 million payback deal to make up for in-app purchases. Amazon has also been targeted.
One year later, Google is finally doing, it too.
Google's customer refund deal comes to over $19 million. If you've had a kid make in-app purchases without your permission, then you're eligible to get a piece of this massive deal.
Check the email associated with your Google Play Store account. If you've made an in-app purchase between March 11th, 2011, and November 18th, 2014, then you should find a refund-related email from Google.
There should be a link to all of the in-app purchases associated within the account. If any of those purchases are refundable, you should see a button.
It's up to you to decide whether or not the purchase was made by a child.
