    I got most of mine money back through Apple using the an advisor via a chat session.  They rest was from the credit card company.  Since it was a gift card, Apple may be your only chance to get your money back, but it's a lot of work for 8 bucks!  I spent almost an hour on the computer chatting with the advisor before it was all done.


    Here's the link if you want to try an advisor:


    Good luck!

    The same thing happened to me with the Chinese game buying and then the in-app purchases. It says it came from my PayPal, which had nothing in it and was connected to a bank account. Nothing has shown up on my bank account history yet, though. However, sent Apple an email and 15 mintues later I was refunded my purchases (around $37) minus the tax.


    What makes me mad is that I got an e-mail saying it was purhcased from an unautherized device, yet it went through. There should be some security measure against this, similar to Steam Guard.

    We got the same type of email related to my wife's account being used for over $40 in in-app purchases for Kingdom Conquest. A quick Google search indicates that this problem is pretty wide-spread, possibly affecting thousand of people and that Apple hadn't really been proactive in dealing with it. They did agree to refund the money, but I also don't see why they would allow the purchase to go through in the first place.


    Just to be safe I checked my own iTunes account and saw a message that it had been accesses from a device that was not previously associated with my account. I deleted my credit card info, and don't plan on re-entering it.

    I just had 2 purchases made to my credit card today to itunes. 43 and 56 dollars. My banks fraud dept. called me and asked if i made these . The first charge was a .43 cents charge to east gate hotel in georgia. Lady said that was a test charge to see if card works. Then they used on itunes for rest. Should i contact apple , i filled out forms with bank for reversal.

    This same stupid **** happened to me last week and then again just this morning!! thank goodness i check my email all the time. So i was able to get to it quick. Last week i reported it and changed all my passwords for both Itunes and Paypal  and both itunes and paypal refunded my money back $19 for some weird game i've never even heard of. Now this morning i get an email from paypal stating a payment of $36 was made to itunes again! which i didnt do. I dont even know how this happened especially when i have removed my paypal info from Itunes and didnt update it to anything. I've filed another claim with paypal and Itunes and i'm just waiting to see what they will tell me now. This is rediculous. Makes me just want to remove my itunes accoutn fully!

    we are traveling in CHina and my account was hacked. ton of purchases were made... we spent a good two hours trying to figure out a way to contact itune to report the problem but probably because of the weird internet connection here in China, we could never get to the page to submit our report. do you know the shortcut? or do anyone know itune's custom service phone line? we need to have this taken care of asap!

    @ manute They do not have a customer service number to call.  you have to submit online.  They will blame you.  Tell you that you did not have adequate safeguards in place to protect your account.  I did get my daughters money back in our account, (less sales tax) but i would not link any card to my account.  going forward I will only use gift cards bought in small $ increments and use them up as I get them.  Good luck. The email address I received emails from when my accout was hacked was
