A woman claims to be the mother of a 10-month-old son. Purchased ‘Non-Refundable’ Tesla Upgrade Package for $10,000
A mother’s claim on TikTok that her 10-month-old son mistakenly purchased a $10,000 self-driving package for her car through the Tesla app has gone viral. The TikToker didn’t realize the purchase had been made until it appeared on her bank statement, according to the post. Hundreds of commenters are in disbelief after seeing the video, which has nearly two million views.
The TikTok begins with a screenshot of the order confirmation page, which includes information on the order as well as instructions on how to set up the service. “When your 10-month-old purchases the whole self-driving package using the Tesla app,” the captions on the screen said. The video is set to a popular TikTok remix of the Commodores’ “Oh No.”
The video continues with a photo of her son, followed by a video of a Tesla in self-driving mode with the captions: “And you didn’t know until you checked your bank statement and discovered that this is NON-refundable 48 hours after purchase.”
“Why isn’t there a password or a security measure before you could make this purchase?” the mother wonders as she shows a screenshot of the transaction from within the app.
Our son decided that we required the self-driving package that we had discussed previously #tesla #teslaworld #ohno #foryou #fyp
Oh no, Kreepa!
Many commenters quickly expressed their dissatisfaction with the mother’s story.
“Yeah, let’s blame the baby,” one commentator said, adding a wink emoji.
“However, picture having $10,000 in your bank account and not realizing it,” added another.
“I have to say cap,” said a user by the name of Stephen, “because 99 percent of banks need a double authentication or verify [sic]before it will let anything be purchased.” The term “cap” is slang for “lie.”
Others, however, took the opportunity to make jokes.
“They did say babies were expensive,” commented a TikToker named Nicole. “Is this what they mean?!”
“He said he heard y’all weighing the pros and cons but at the end of the day HE is the decision-maker in this household,” joked another.
The mother recorded a follow-up TikTok responding to another user who believes the story to be a lie because the bank. This is a brief summary.
