We have tried everything. It sounds like there is a security block on your account. iTunes can place blocks on your account for multiple reasons including change in billing or location. You will need to fill out a contact form for further review of your account https://ssl.apple.com/emea/support/itunes/contact.html

Customer:

Appleologist :

Our site blocks your information for security purposes. I know its been a long process but this is our last step. All that is required is to fill in your name, email address and apple ID. It will take 24-48 hours to get a response back. Click on this link and just enter your name and email address https://ssl.apple.com/emea/support/itunes/contact.html

Include your error message in the box and hit submit

Customer:
