I want to make an online purchase while making it anonymous in my bank statement. How do I do it?

So... yeah this sounds shady lol, I know...

It's for something really harmless, like Skype credit for phone calls. Of course that my parents are the ones that get my bank statement, so I was searching and I realised paypal might be an option. Except that paypal will appear in te bank statement as paypal (and I am guessing anyone that know their way around a computer must know that paypal is used for online purchases... I wanted to not only hide the fact that I was buying Skype credit, but also that I was making an online purchase, since that would be my 1st online purchase, making it suspicious therefore).

Any tips for me? by the way in-app purchases on apple store are also not an option for me since my whole family shares the same apple id, fuck -__-'

  • If you are so young that your parents are who gets your bank statements, then you are too young to make those decisions yourself. Yes, I can see that you are 22, but what I said still stands.

    • I would recommend a part time job. It will give you a bit of experience, something for a resume later, and money that your parents will have no control over.

    • Thanks for the sugestion

  • Buy one of those prepaid VISA cards and use that, instead.

  • It's way easier to find an excuse to buy Skype credits. Mask the reason, then the bank should be fine.

    • hmm I could but they already know that I was talking to people on Skype, my boyfriend included (even if they didn't know he was a bf). I have been laying low since then, and I dont want to raise any suspicions again, see?

    • There is no one I could trust with that, except for one person and even then I wouldn't have the nerve to ask that of them. But things are ok now. I talked with him, even if it was just via fb and not at the same time. I am more relieved now.

      I will search about that boleto bancário thing. never heard about it before

      Thank you matheus :)

    • You're welcome, good luck!

  • Steal someone elses credit card and use that :p

    • Use BitCoins, it's completely anonymous not even the government will know about it, seriously, you buy illegal firearms and other illegal stuff and not get caught with it

  • You can't do it legally.

    Using credit cards always has electronic receipts - for the card owner's security.
    You could:
    -Open your own Debit account, deposit cash then use it to purchase stuff.
    -Ask someone to buy it, then pay them.
