A family warns other parents after an app that allows children to exchange messages with & # 39; Santa & # 39; who sent inappropriate messages to their eight-year-old daughter.
With her father, with permission from Justin Bell, the girl had the app & # 39; Santa Call & Text You & # 39; downloaded, with which children can record a voicemail with their Christmas wish list and even leave a message for Santa Claus.
But the resident of Gaston, North Carolina, was furious about the scary message the app sent to his child.
After sending a & # 39; Hello & # 39; text, the daughter received a message from & # 39; Santa & # 39; via the app with the question: & # 39; What are you wearing? & # 39 ;, Fox reports.
Mother Ashley Adams said: “Only me, and her father and a few other people know the password for her to download any type of apps or something.
With the app & # 39; Santa Call & Text You & # 39; children can send Santa a message with his Christmas wish list. Shown are screenshots of the app from Apple's iTunes Store
& # 39; She wanted to download this Santa app because she wanted to talk to Santa. He was sitting right next to her and she was so excited to show the reactions. & # 39;
& # 39; I was just in shock & # 39 ;, Adams told Fox on Monday. & # 39; It made me sick. & # 39;
The father, Bell, called the police after receiving the messages and they guided him through continuing the conversation to get more information.
At some point the app asked & # 39; how old are you? & # 39 ;. When Bell & # 39; 8 & # 39; replied, the app replied: & # 39; You are too old for me. & # 39;
Children record a voicemail with their Christmas wish list and even leave a message for Santa Claus. Shown is a screenshot of the app.
After the disturbing reports, mother Adams said: “My child no longer loves Santa and is now afraid of Santa Claus. She is only 8. & # 39;
She added: & # 39; I feel that my daughter has been violated. I wanted to make more parents aware, because many children like to download these Santa apps. My daughter does it every year, and now she is scared. This is really scary. & # 39;
