New here - but not new to the gaming addiction. I found out in March that he had spent thousands on in game app purchases. I honestly couldn’t tell you the name of the game except I know it’s a team building attack game. I only found out because I happened to pull a credit report and our Lowe’s bill had thousands on it. We never carried a balance. I called and they sent me a statement. I then figured out I could pull our grocery store rewards card and saw hundreds of dollars in iTunes gift card purchases. It was all for a multiplayer game which after denials he admitted to doing it. He quit “gaming”
Last weekend when I was on a girls trip I noticed these crazy random purchases at the gas station but nothing attached to our loyalty card. How many times can you actually get gas ? I sleauthed and figured out he used his cell number to open up a new loyalty card and there I saw iTunes purchases again. He was supposed to be watching our kids while I was out of town. The one thing I am frustrated about is it’s hard to find mentions of iPhone gaming in addictions but it’s very much a real thing. I read all the toolkits I have put the boundaries in to play but he lied despite my receipts showing what we did. Then he said I trap him and it’s my fault. I know that’s addict talk but try finding family members who even know what “iTunes gift cards for multiplayer gaming addiction” even means.
Does anyone else deal with this?
