Google bill can­celled

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

Google has writ­ten off a 100,000-euro bill run up by a 12year-old Span­ish boy who mis­tak­enly be­lieved he was earn­ing money through an ad­ver­tis­ing ac­count he opened with the in­ter­net gi­ant to pro­mote videos of his mu­nic­i­pal band. News re­ports said the boy, from the eastern city of Tor­re­vieja, ran up the Google AdWords bill over two months. His mother, Inma Que­sada, told the El Pais news­pa­per that her son, Jose Javier, said he wanted to be­come a “rich youtu­ber” but did not re­alise what he was do­ing. Google con­firmed yes­ter­day that it stud­ied the case and had can­celled the bill.
