Four children in the United Kingdom emptied their parents bank accounts all in the hope of trying to unlock Barcelona superstar, Lionel Messi on FIFA 19, but alas they still couldn't get him despite spending quite a lot of cash.
As per the Sun, four kids spent £550 on multiple player packs over a period of three weeks trying to get Messi on their team in the Nintendo Switch console, a result of which their father, Thomas Carter has got their console confiscated indefinitely.
The four children decided to spend their father’s money without asking after he treated them to a single player pack. It was much later that Thomas Carter and his wife realised what had happened – they understood the situation only when their card got declined because the account was empty.
“I just never thought [the children] would do it. You pay £40 for the game, which is a lot of money in itself, but then the only way to get a great team is essentially by gambling. They spent £550 and they still never got their favourite player, Lionel Messi," Carter said.
However, it's not all bad news for the family as Nintendo have reportedly agreed to give him a full refund and will remove all of the purchased players.
