App Store fraud
« on: March 16, 2012, 12:53:41 PM »
Today's NY Times has an interesting article on Apple App Store fraud, which appears to be increasing rapidly.

This could turn out to be a serious problem for Apple if it undermines public confidence that the closed and curated App Store and iTunes environments are safer than the open content and app markets provided by Google, Amazon and others.

Live by the cloud, go bankrupt from the cloud! (Tangential note: One thing I do like about Android apps is that after you buy them, you can get a refund.)

On your itunes store receipt you can "report a problem", that's how I got a refund before. Works fine you get a personal reply etc.
