Apple investigating reported fraudulent iTunes transactions in Singapore
Apple is investigating reported fraudulent iTunes purchases that have led to deductions in Singapore bank accounts.
Channel NewsAsia reported on Sunday that dozens of Apple customers have had hundreds of dollars deducted from their bank accounts after being billed for iTunes purchases they did not make or having iTunes accounts.
OCBC Bank detected 58 cases of fraudulent transactions charged to cardholders’ accounts in July, the media outlet quoted a bank official as saying.
Says a victim, architectural designer Hariz Lim: "The shocking thing is, I don't even have any credit or debit card details saved on my own iTunes account," said Mr Lim. "Apple/iTunes was not even aware of the fraudulent transactions (in my account) until I informed them."
Meanwhile, Apple said users who want to report a problem with any iTunes purchases may do so on its support page
