This website has nothing to do with that, I'd recommend calling credit card company that you were scammed on and let them know you did not authorize any charges, that is the only way you are going to get a refund. Scams are all over the internet and can be hard to identify by someone who isn't computer savy. I'd recommend to stop using credit cards on the internet, sometimes they even call phone so I wouldn't give anyone credit card information over phone either. I'll have refund issues for this question, I hope you the best.

Then I'd contact apple and see what they can do for you, tell them you didn't give out the information to anyone and somehow account was drained, that is the only chance you have to get it back.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
