A three year old boy from Australia caused his parents to have quite a shock when he purchased an £8,000 digger on an online auction website. The child had woken up early before his parents and used his mothers laptop where he came across the TradeMe action site. He then purchased the full sized digger. His mother later saw an email from the seller saying 'I think you'll love this digger'." At first she assumed it was a toy digger she had been looking at earlier but later realised the purchase for a full sized digger and had cost her 20,000 Australian dollars. Luckily when she called the seller to explain, he was sympathetic and the digger was later relisted. This is a good reason not to leave your small child alone with a computer.
