Hi
I'm not technical enough to know how serious this is but the BBC is running the story at the moment...

It's hard to protect children when they play online, but special protective solutions will allow them to keep playing and having fun, and for parents not to worry about their safety. And just like in school or on the playground, they can make bad decisions.
Keeping children safe in the internet playground can be challenging

What the heck? They are hacking children now, these pricks don't seem to have any moral limits. I mean. they are still robbing us which is not ok of course, but doing this using children is below my understanding. To be safe I recommend learning more about cyber security. Even if something like this happens to you, there is no reason in blaming the children. There is no way they can know about this. You could have a discussion with them and warn them about the dangers of trying to buy anything in the games.
