As you can see in the statement, Apple has “vaguely confirmed” the incident by simply stating the removal of the developer. Apple also states, that if users did get swooped into the horrible scheme they are urged to contact their bank or credit card company to work out refunds.

Users are also encouraged to research safe password practices and change their iTunes password immediately.
