    I have an AMEX gift card attached to my iTunes account. I only had $0.15 on it, but i clicked download on the third season of Ghost Whsiperer for kicks and giggles. Well, to my surprise it started downloading. Then an alert popped up saying that there was a problem with my credit card and it wanted me to sign in. But i clicked cancel and now the whole season finished downloading. It also said that i will not be able to download music until i sign in and let iTunes check. Well, i'm not going to do that. I'll just create a new account. So did i get the whole thing for $0.15? I have no other payment methods attached to my account. So they can't charge me, right?

    Well, :DDDDDDDDDDD

    You owe Apple, some amount of money. Knowing how greedy Apple is, I wouldn't be surprised if they sent it to a debt collector :p

    Just out of curiosity:

    1- how much would it have you cost if you payed the full price?
    2- Is it worth getting in trouble for? :)

    So, basically - you are proud of the fact that you managed to get a season of television by fraud. Your family must be so proud of you.

    What a waste of illegality. You could have at least gotten something good.

    I agree. Also, Apple will burn your house for that 15c.

    Isn't that what is so great about the Virtual World? Everything you do can be anonymous. Why would someone brag about being dishonest? ....because we don't know who it is.

    A season of the Boob Whisperer isn't so bad as long as you just keep the volume down. Seriously, just enjoy the view.

    You could have saved yourself 0.15 and downloaded it for free with DVD Rip quality ;)

    He said he knew that he didn't have enough credit on the Amex card before he started to download.... therefore it was not an accident.... it was fraud.

    This happened to my friend actually, the exact same situation except an app on iphone. Apple will bill you at a later time. You are going to have to pay for the show you downloaded.
