View Full Version : My account is disabled

Aug 30, 2009, 09:46 AM

I have a US iTunes account, but I live outside the USA. I've been using it to buy TV shows because our TV reception was crap until we finally went digital. I know it's not "allowed" but I figured it was okay if I was paying anyway.:)

Several months ago the account was disabled (I purchased an iTunes voucher on eBay just before the seller was banned - that is all I know).:(

Should I contact Apple support and see if they can reactivate it?
or should I just leave it?

Could I end up losing my original account in Ireland because I have my name on the US account?

Lots of sellers on eBay were selling iTunes gift cards either purchased with stolen credit cards or from hacked cards. Apple responded by disabling all accounts that do that. Other posts have talked about it on the forums; try searching and calling Apple.

I called Apple about it and they reactivated my account.
