This needs to get approved so the message to stay away from this scam gets out to gamers I got message too.I wrote so cringy stuff because I knew that this is very sketchy.
I've got these messages a few times now and I block and report them.
The last time I got this message I played along to see what they were up to.
@Weeb, If you're going to be an absentee parent that's on you and I feel sorry for your kids.
However, if you pay any attention at all to what your child is doing, then this would be a non issue.
Except no one uses them and if something were to get weird with a kid in say Minecraft the story doesn't change regardless of whether parental controls were there.
When so much of Nintendos bottom line relies on younger kids, I'm not going to disparage them for taking the super safe route.From what games you like playing, to "do you want a free pass to watch me practice my show"... All I needed was my credit card to verify my age.... but it's obvious that many don't, and while that's bad PR for any company, it doesn't mean they can't be active in actually being a solution to the problem, instead of ignoring it or actively keeping others away from such things because they have to protect the children. A friend of mine kept on messaging and ended up on one of those cam sites where they asked for his card [email protected] Nintendew Kids use all sorts of other social services like Facebook, Steam, PSN, XBL, Instagram etc and you don't see half the dumbass functionality that you do on Nintendo's service Also Nintendo's console is no more a family system than Play Station and Xbox, so that is not a legitimate excuse for why they can continue to put out a lackluster service. She said she's going through a list looking for people to chat to as she's bored. Edit: I noticed some of them go through the communities list where they find you and so pretend having similar interests I got one of these a few weeks ago.They claim they will give you a private peep show for free but you have to go to a certain web site and enter your credit card info.
