There has been a scam email going around lately that claims you a large amount of money on Itunes. This email is just attempting to steal your personal information so do not click on any links in it. Check your bank/credit card accounts for the money to see if the $215.43 is actually missing. If it is not then you can simply delete this email. If you are missing the money let me know and I wil advise how to proceed.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating for providing you a quick answer! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.

Is the money actually missing from your bank accounts?

Mac Support Specialist: Chris L., Support Specialist replied 7 months ago

Please understand that the scam email is lying about the money and they just use that to scare you into giving over your account details. If no money is missing then follow the instructions on this page to change your password: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201355

If the money is missing from your bank or credit cards go through each of these steps on this page which will walk you through what you need to do:

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
