Meet Caitlin, the 6-year-old scam artist who managed to secretly order $350 of toys from Amazon. Her mother had no idea the order was placed until a delivery truck pulled up outside their home and unloaded a pile of boxes taller than Caitlin herself.
“They just started unloading box after box after box,” Caitlin’s older cousin, Ria, told Buzzfeed. “Her mom went on her Amazon account and saw three pages of things she had ordered.”
Caitlin’s loot included toys, video games, and board games. “She knew exactly what she was doing when she did it,” Ria explained. “I was so surprised that a 6-year-old knew how to do one-click, next-day shipping.”
Ria shared the story on Twitter.

It’s clear that Caitlin was more than a little pleased with herself, but she quickly learned her mother wasn’t about to let her keep the haul.
Everything was sent back to Amazon for a full refund. “She did not get grounded,” Ria says, “but she does not have access to the internet for a month.”
