FAQ About Itunes code sales

frequently asked questions:

Will anyone get in trouble? contrary to what the iTunes terms of service tries to imply, redeeming foreign itunes gift cards is not against any law. It is legally purchased and is used to pay for downloads. Apple only pursues those who 'steal' music by using illegal file sharing networks instead of buying from the itunes store.
Will codes expire in a certain time-frame? there is no expiration - that is always a sign of fraud if the seller says you must redeem within 24 hours or other timeframe.
What about those $50 itunes cards that sell for $20?
also fraud. the seller uses stolen credit cards to buy online certificates from itunes. when the owner of the credit card sees the fraudulent charges, they contact itunes for a refund. Apple can and does trace which account holder redeemed the code. using those codes can get your itunes account suspended. if the fraudulent seller used the credit card to open a paypal account to accept your payment, you'll have to cover the chargeback costs and may have your paypal account suspended.
