Looks like things swing both ways with the issue of fraudulent iTunes gift cards. And based on what I am reading here, it looks like the person suing has a strong case. Feels almost like a bait and switch to a degree. No one likes to be screwed around with when making a purchase.
Now here is the other side of the issue. Wrong as it may be, is this something worthy of a lawsuit? Ah, there is the million dollar question. While this is clearly a matter of posing variable pricing for their products via gift cards, I cannot help but wonder just how much the family involved is seeking in “damages”.
Is there emotional distress? Lost wages? Was someone or something made to look foolish in the public eye? Outside of a refund here, I am beginning to smell something a bit more opportunistic here. But this is just me speculating of course.
