Customer Question
I received a message...

I received a message from Apple saying that I had bought an appCalled Schmale SMULE and I did not make that purchase for $30 and I thought it was a message from you so I entered my code and my ID and then I began to wonder if maybe it was a scam

Technician's Assistant: When did you last change your password ***** Apple ID?

A year or more

Technician's Assistant: Did you try resetting through Apple's online account reset tool?

I’m concerned about the purchase not my ID or password

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

I'm just trying to recover my password. Here is the problem.
Here is the problem. I am charged .99 a month for extra ICloud storage. In Maybe Nov or Dec my expiration date expired. I had to give née expiration date or maybe lose my photos. What I thought was my password *****'t work. I tried to change my password ***** as I went thru the steps, apple would send me a verification code to use. I'd put it in immediately and would get a message saying the code was invalid. This happened over and over with the code being called invalid each time. I took the phone to my daughter and she somehow got the new expiration date of the credit card in. But I still didn't have a new password. But that was ok because I never buy anything from apple and it wouldn't be a problem til the new credit card was ready to expire, which wouldn't be for years. Then, wouldn't you know it, I was in the hospital and the new card came up missing. I had to cancel the card, which I'd had for years, and get a new #. Well, that started the entire process all over again. With apple telling me the verification code they had just given me was invalid. Repeatedly. So I've been waiting 2 weeks for this message to begin recovery. And this is where I am. … read more
