Some Lion Buyers Incorrectly Charged Multiple Times for Download
Don't you just hate it when you purchase 1 thing and then you're accidentally charged 122 times for it?
Hard to believe, but this is the type of complaint that has turned up in the forums of Apple Support Communities. In fact, one recent Mac OS X Lion buyer reports having initiated his download on July 23rd, for a sum total of $31.79. But low and behold, the unfortunate Mac fan went on to see his PayPal account subsequently charged the same amount another 121 times.
If you do the math, that comes out to almost $4,000. Isolated incident, you say? To this degree, it appears so. But erroneous or multiple charges for the single Lion download have been reported with increasing frequency. As another poster lamented:
I purchased OS X Lion from the app store and now paypal statement shows that itunes store charged me 20 times more, a total of $599.80. Please help, what am I supposed to do. I already talked with paypal and they said they will look and I emailed apple customer service, no reply yet.

They're doing it wrong. Clearly the customer's fault.

Makes sense how this is the fastest selling OS ever if one person is buying 100 copies at once.

Hopefully Apple won't play the run-around game of "it's paypals fault" and vice versa sending the customers into an endless battle.

Silly Apple, that's not how you get away with credit card fraud.

This, kids, is why you stay very very far away from PayPal. Very far away. Probably the most unethical of online payment companies on the entire internet.

Whoever is at fault, there should be damages awarded for this. People will have checks bounce, payments missed, even mortgage payments, and credit histories will be damaged.
