iTunes gifting scam plunges Reg reader into the red

Ben G.

So many mistakes

CCVs are never checked. Well, I've never had one checked and I've made many purchases. Multiple failed logins should be flagged and accounts disabled. First time gifts should be validated. Many gifts in short periods should ring alarm bells. My god damn bank should recognise 9 £25 transactions in 3 minutes as possibly fraudulent. The response should not be to disable an account I've already made safe (card gone, password changed) and explained as such.

Yeah, got screwed too.

For f**ks sake.
