    The credit card linked to my Apple ID is not mine, but everything else is listed in my name. The credit card is the only evidence of the other name on the account and on the top of all the emails it comes with the other name, rather than my name that I have given them. Is there any way to change this? It's just a little confusing to have someone else's name on everything, when in the 'name' field on the website, it says my name. The credit card is the only way I can think they have the other name

    So whose card gets billed? Yours or the other name? If so happy days!

    Just give apple a call to sort it out.

    I would go to another computer, not on your network and log into ITunes and change my password immediately.

    It was set up a while back with my mum's credit card details, so it has her name. Everything is paid for with gift cards though, so the card is only there because the account needs one linked I think.

    The account isn't compromised, it's just a little error

    You can click "None" for payment information and just use gift cards without having any credit card linked to the account.
