Unfortunately, this is the time of the year when gift card scams run rampant. And based on the comments generated by the video, this scam has many other victims. “I have got scammed by them too,” wrote TikTok user Jamilya Jones363. Someone with the handle user7297809481983 wrote, “Happened to me too,” and added that “when I tried to use the card online the money went straight into somebody else’s account they made a purchase as soon as I put in card number.”
A TikTok user named Maria said that this happened to her twice while user Kim Nguyen6237 was also scammed out of $100 after purchasing an Apple gift card. One person claiming to be a Target employee explained why @tommyxlin could not get a refund from the store. “I work at target,” said the post, “and somebody actually came in today to complain about this but it goes against our store policy we can’t return gift cards.”
There is a better way to purchase an Apple gift card
In a strange way, you could blame the mother of the late Mike Nesmith for this problem. Yes, the woman who brought the Monkees guitarist into the world was also the inventor of Liquid Paper, the original white-out for typists back in the pre-word processor and desktop computer days. While that might win you a buck or two during a trivia contest, let’s get back to this problem.
If you want to buy an Apple gift card for someone this holiday season, you can purchase an e-gift card from Amazon. This writer has done this in the past with no issues. Open the Amazon app, tap in Apple gift cards in the search field, and when you make the purchase, the recipient of your generosity will receive an email with all of the information required to activate the card. You can even choose the date when you want this email to arrive.
Not only does this prevent you from buying a gift card that has been tampered with, it is one less stop for Santa.
