i've always thought it'd be relatively simple to go into a store, scan a bunch of "non-activated" gift cards (or hell, the numbers are written on a lot of them, so you could just copy them down on paper), and put them back.

then, write that information onto a 'non-activated' gift card that's been grabbed from the store (they don't really care if you take a non-activated card, and this way your clone looks legit). wait a while (for someone to activate the card you left at the store), and voila, you've got a copy of a gift card that somebody else has put money on!

of course you allude to some sort of scratch off PIN on the card, which may preclude merely writing the information down, but that number may very well be stored on the magnetic stripe. (some card types even store the pin -only- on the magnetic stripe, meaning the cloner could just write 1234 there and enter that when using the cloned card)

just because you have the physical card doesn't mean there wasn't another one in existence, and on a debit-card-style account like this, it is definitely apple's responsibility to refund fraudulent charges. perhaps contacting the issuing bank may get you further?

Keep going, but you do have two problems
1) you dind't have the receipt,
2) YOU SAY the card was in your locker for four days...

I mean, you can't expect a lowly store minion to believe you just like that...

A) So you have to go higher up so that people in a position of authority can get a look at your face, judge your character, and decide whether or not to trust you;

B) You go to the police and have them file that someone's stolen $2000

I recommend contacting the consumerist as well on this. They might be able to help you get additional attention to your problem and possibly help you solve it.

Sorry your blog experience has been so bad - I liked the story -

Yea, Apple has taken down anything that I have posted on their site - heck one comment was as innocuous as it gets - I simply stated with the latest iTunes release, they have become nothing more than a Microsoft when it comes to the quality of their software releases (my iPod quit working in my car for many months until another iTunes 'update') 'removed by moderator' - so much for a software company for the 'people' -

Good luck!

Apple believe it or not, is worse than MS on removing negative posts on their forum. I had tried to get answers for years why my ibook's logic board broke 6 times. My posts would barely last a few hours before being deleted without a word.

On the other hand i had much worse things to say about vista's power management for notebooks and those posts are still visable.

That's the problem dealing with such a secretive company. They don't take bad press lightly.

They took down your post because you are a lying scammer.
