This makes no sense. You called them, there's no way that you got caught by a scammer. There is something that you're not telling us.

Why would disputing a charge cause you to buy $1,400 in gift cards?

How the hell did that happen? There must have been some way of knowing the number you called was the right one. Not only that, but you had to give consent to authorize the transaction for the gift cards, so even before you realized the guy you were speaking to wasn't with iTunes' customer support (which I'm still confused about, as you called them), you gave the information necessary for them to remove $1,400 from your account, which is a lot of money to agree to spend on gift cards, scam or not.

Now that's what I call a scammy situation!

Just guessing here, but sometimes I also get scam emails from ‘Apple’ with iTunes charges that I know didn’t actually happen. If you’re gullible enough you might click on them, go to some website with the ‘iTunes’ phone number of the scammer and then get tricked out of actual money.

That’s what I thought but when she says “random iTunes charge on my bank account” it sounds like she saw her statement rather than an email. But an email definitely makes this FML make much more sense.

It was wonderful, thank you! Now, I have all this money I need to get rid of. If someone can just cover the transfer fees...
