As per report from Spanish daily El Pais, Jose and his friend planned to get rich by earning through his music videos. After creating account of AdWords (instead of AdSense), by early August, Jose received bill of 15 euro in start of September which becomes 19,700 euro within days as company did not received payable amount from the boy. Google’s representative stated that is age restrictions to use AdWords account as well as the other services.

Spanish Laws restrict that only 14 years old can create the Google account, and to use AdSense or AdWords account individual must be 18. However, In the story Jose was using AdWords account in the age of 12 which is quite astonishing.
