A: You do against the hackers. But there's not enough information for other potential parties. Most transactions using Apple Cash are below $1,000 and it is likely you'll get your money back for fraudulent transfers. Have you contacted Apple, Target, and the bank behind Apple Cash? How do you know the hackers got your information from either Target or Apple? Could it be someone hacked your device, or hacked a device connected to your Apple ID, or a friend took your information from your device directly?
