32-year-old resident of St. Petersburg Andrew Sinitsky lost suit, in which he demanded to return to him the money spent on the purchase of content in the game “The Great Sultan”. He was suing the developer of Mechanist Internet Technologies, Google, in whose store the game was posted, and Tinkoff Bank.
Sinitsky indicated in the lawsuit that from November 2018 to July 2019, 763 550 rubles were debited from his bank card. He argued that the money was debited unilaterally and without his consent, and he did not know about card transactions, since in order to save money, he did not connect SMS notifications.
Sinitsky demanded to recover 654 thousand rubles and 109.5 thousand Indian rupees from the defendants as compensation for material expenses, 5 thousand rubles as compensation for moral damage, as well as a fine of 50% of the awarded amount for non-compliance with the consumer’s requirements on a voluntary basis. The court denied Sinitsky’s claims on the basis that the user agreement to the “Great Sultan” clearly and unambiguously indicated the presence of paid content and the possibility of debiting money from a bank card linked to a Google account without additional confirmation.
Fontanka found out that Sinitsky was a co-owner of one of the companies that specializes in law. Whether he will challenge the court’s decision is still unknown.
