Itunes

Do you save you credit card info in Itunes for quick one click payment? I wouldn't recommend it, you could be hacked. I have now got 2 $50 gift card charges I did not make. And apples customer service is like waiting for the cows to come home.

Is this related to the charges on your credit card, or just a general comment? Are you going through Apple to get your charges reversed? If so, i would suggest going straight to your CC company, probably a much quicker process getting the charges wiped.

I went to Suntrust first and they told me to contact apple since the charges are still pending. Suntrust told me they couldn't do anything until tomorrow.

I don't pay for music but use Itunes to buy Iphone applications..........generally speaking, most of those are free, but I pay for one occasionally if it's worth it.

I have had charges on a couple of different credit cards for iTunes downloads, and I have never stored a credit card number on iTunes, nor used iTunes for any downloads...

So, the source of your hack could well be elsewhere.

You should cancel your card and get a new one issued, regardless of the source of the hack.

When I go into Itunes and look at my purchase history the two gift cards are there, as if I bought them. They didn't come from anyone else using my card number, they used my Itunes identity.

I don't have credit card info stored in iTunes for exactly this reason. Instead, I hit a drug store and buy gift cards for my account.
