The good news is that one call to Apple and I was able to recover the lost funds. The bad news is, I have absolutely NO IDEA how this could have happened. Yesterday morning I received an interesting text on my iPhone saying that I made a purchase on another iDevice and that I could sync up my purchases if I go into my settings. This isn't anything unusual. What is unusual is that my iPhone is my only iDevice. I check my email and received a purchase confirmation for an app that has a Chinese name (the actual app was named in Chinese characters). I immediately thought the worst and figured someone overseas hacked into my account. A quick call to Apple led me to their security department and they confirmed that someone made 3 separate $100 transactions. It turns out it was an in-app purchase (probably in-game money for some MMORPG type of game based on the app icon). The rep assured me that I would get all my credit back and I already got the confirmation email for the credit to my account, but what is really freaking me out is how did they hack into my account? Thankfully my email password is not the same as my iTunes password and there is no credit card linked to my account, but my password for all intents and purposes is unbreakable if someone were trying to hack it by guessing. It is an illogical combination of numbers and letters that do not even spell a word. This has me concerned because now I am questioning my online security. I've already changed my email password and removed all saved credit cards on shopping websites like Amazon. I received a few iTunes gift cards for Christmas and the only purchases I made were a few iTunes songs through my MacBook Air which is connected to my password protected Wi-Fi router. I did a quick Google search and it looks like a number of people had the same problem as me. Could this be an inside job within Apple? I just can't seem to figure out that 1) not only do they need to guess my password but 2) they need to figure out my Apple username to link it to and 3) they must have targeted my account since they saw it had a lot of store credit but how would they have known?
