    (You don't find that kind of creative headliner just anywhere.)

    A few days ago, I got an email from Apple that I needed to reset my password, but it looked suspicious to me, and I marked it as a phishing scam. Yesterday, my iTouch told me itself that I needed to reset my password before I could download updates for my apps. Today, I get a receipt for some Chinese thing that took almost all of my money.

    After an unnecessary amount of searching, I finally submitted a report to Apple.

    The question is, how does this happen? Is there cyber-thievery going on behind the scenes at Apple? Will Ting get his money back? Is Chris_Crime going to be admitted into an institution? Are Longo's 2 guns too long? Don't miss the next episode of Total Drama Forum!

    Yeah for some reason I've had to change my password twice in the last 6 months.

    Yeah, I have to change my Apple stuff constantly. I mostly stick with granny smith.

    But hey, as someone who buys Apple products, shouldn't you ne used to being robbed? They're just more direct about it now.

    Thank you, I'll be here all week.

    My iTunes account had a bunch of chinese purchases made on it. With my region reset to China.
    The debit card it tried to charge to was deactivated, though.
    So i made a new iTunes account and now the apple twats are permanently out $30.

    I got my money back. The support person was named Shubham.

    Shubham.

    That's the coolest name I've heard since I named my Khajiit gal Sha'kalakah.
