Littleton, CO asked in Consumer Law and Products Liability for Colorado

Q: Apple iTunes refunded $7,000 dollars back out of $75,000 spent, they will not go back more then 60 days. can I get more?

My mother used my fathers iPad and started playing freemium casino slots or free to play slots through face book. She got addicted to those “manipulated” games and with in a course of 2.5 years she spent over $75,000 dollars. The problem was she was taking it from my dads life savings without him knowing it. She did it through Apple iTunes. I got in contact with them and after several months they agreed that it was a terrible situation that that happened to my dad and my mother being she was what I say “manipulated” by the game developers and I have some proof as to why I say that. Itunes agreed to refund some of the money but all they could do was for 60 days worth of credit. ThAt totaled little under $7,000 dollars. That is out of $75,000 she spent. Apple obviously felt it was justified into giving us some of the money back but i feel we should be able to get more then 7,000 dollars back being as the games caused harm to my family. Is this possible?

A: Why not contact a member of the Colorado Assn for Justice as there may be a violation of the gaming laws if they take money from people in colorado while having a game that can be manipulated.
