Fraudulent Charges via ApplePay

Just want others to learn and know about what I just learned…

OpenAI charged my credit card, but never did I give OpenAI/ChatGPT etc access to my card in any way (number or ApplePay).

Only after I took the initiative myself did I discover it was fraudulent. OpenAI, AmericanExpress, Stripe, and Apple were not interested in helping me with the issue. I had to do the work myself.

It’s nearly identical to the issue in this thread:

https://community.openai.com/t/my-card-was-used-for-chatgpt-subscription-payment-fraud/172663/70FYI, I also flagged this to our team so they can take a look here.

The last post in that thread dated May 2023 is arguably the most troubling of all responses:

“FYI, I also flagged this to our team so they can take a look here.”

Clearly OpenAI is not done anything about this, it’s still happening.

OpenAI and their partners (including Stripe, AmericanExpress, and Apple) need to do more to prevent fraudulent charges, I will be calling them out as much as I can until they ALL take fraud more seriously. All of them treated me as the guilty party…when in fact they’re all more guilty than I am.
