Illinois Plaintiffs Sue Apple for Gift Card Fraud

Kara Reeder

InformationWeek reports that two Illinois residents are suing Apple for fraud, breach of contract, and violations of Illinois consumer protection laws.


Daniel E. Owens and Barbara S. Owens claim that Apple's iTunes Gift Cards promised songs could be downloaded for $0.99. When the company decided to raise song prices on April 7 to $1.29, its marketing message became misrepresentation, say the Owens. They are seeking class action status and

"a $0.30 refund for any song that has been purchased for $1.29 while using a 99 iTunes Gift Card."
