Revolutionary New Apple Service Bills Your AMEX Card For Nearly $50,000 In Music

I think we can all agree that Jobs and his crew at Apple are a bunch of visionaries when it comes to gadgets, online stores, and now getting really, really screwed by an iTunes purchase. Joel writes, “I just got a call from American Express stating that my recent purchase for iTunes plus for my entire library (cost $146) has been charged to my account over 300 times and is currently still being charged. I have called Apple to have them stop charging me and they told me the only thing I can do is cancel my card. There is no number for iTunes and I have sent multiple messages to them without response via email.”

UPDATE: It turns out that Joel had purchased the iTunes Plus upgrade for his entire music library. Apple is reversing the upgrade and the charges.
