A Teen Accidentally Spent $733 At Sephora On Her Mom's Credit Card And Her Reaction Is Hilarious


This is 15-year-old makeup fan Alex Dello from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

She tweeted a video of herself this week explaining how she had accidentally charged her mother's credit card hundreds of dollars' worth of orders from Sephora.

I just accidentally charged my mother's card $733 @Sephora

People found her video hilarious.

Alex said she tried to cancel the order by talking to Sephora's customer services.

[But] not being the main cardholder and me not even having that credit card on hand, there was nothing she could do to cancel. I couldn't prove that it was my card, it basically looked like fraud and I tried to back out of the crime," she told BuzzFeed News.

Alex said the first thing she did was to text her mother, Marcia DelloStritto, 50, who was still at work.


DelloStritto, who works at a school bus driving company, told BuzzFeed News: "I panicked and at first she did not include the total. Knowing her and her love of makeup, I knew it had to have been a lot for her to be texting me."

But in the end she decided to let Alex keep the makeup, and that this would be her Christmas present.

Mum goals, TBH.

@dellojello wait you're getting $700 worth of make up from Sephora for Christmas? Goals honestly


Alex said she was just pleased people enjoyed her video confession.
