iTunes gifting scam plunges Reg reader into the red

Details are so alike

Yeah the same thing did happen to me as my brother mentioned. I got done for 100 X £10 gift's, recived only one email from iTunes, had to wait a day for them to reply and eventially my bank (incidently also HSBC) refunded my money and charged it back to iTunes as fraud. They are still investigating and said that if iTunes can prove it wasn't fraud which I cant see how they can then they can take the £1000 back. I said in my email to iTunes that I cannot see how when I have never bought a Gift for someone in the many years I have had my account that they cannot spot 100 in a matter of hours as something out of the ordinary. Not too supprisingly I did not get a responce to that.
