I purchased 2 $50 iTunes cards from this merchant on May 7, 2018.  I purchased a $100 one on May 8, 2018.  When my friend tried to use the $100 one, he was told it was fake. 

The two $50 ones were for another person - a soldier in Syria.  When I contacted the Apple Store support, the representative noted that the serial numbers and barcodes on the 2 $50 cards were identical.  Upon examination, it was deicovered that the $100 one had the same serial number and barcode. 

I received 2 pfishing emails from the merchant's "support line" telling me that someone had attempted to use my information to purchase an electronis gaming system.  Those emails are why I contacted Apple support. 

Fortunately for me, I did not respond to the emails with anything that would allow the scammers access to my computer.  I filed a complaint with the FTC and on another fraud report site.

The site is still online  I would very much like to get them knocked off the internet.  If anyone can advix=se me how, I wold sincerely appreciate it.  I hate to know that they are stil victimizing others, some of whome may not be as savvy as I am to pfishing emails.  i wish I hav=d beeen more savvy about purchasing online.  This is the first time I have ever had a problem with an online merchant.

I have also filed a report with my local police.
