Double charged by O2

Hi there,

The last few months, I’ve been charged twice for all in app purchases. Apple Pay charges my bank account, and the exact same charge gets added to my tariff and is shown on my “things you’ve bought” section in the “My 02” app.

I have notified Apple about this, gone through the refund process but they keep rejecting my claims. I’ve emailed Apple and once again, they’ve been very little help, despite providing clear evidence of the double charges.
Apple denied the refund request despite proof of invoices, o2 bill and bank statements.
O2 said they would refund on the next bill, and haven’t. Told someone would call within 5 days. Didn’t. Now saying to dispute with the bank, but the bank refuse because I did make the payments.
Any advice?
(Sorry if this has been posted in the wrong board, was unsure on which one to use)

If apple are denying the refund then o2 certainly arent going to do anything you need to keep persevering with Apple and if need be email Tim Cook, if you are not getting anywhere,


The problem you have is that Apple are passing the charges onto o2, Apple need to approved the refunds..


Sorry but this is purely something for Apple to sort

- Xperia 1V - o2 and Spusu
- Pixel 8 Pro - o2 and Vodafone UK

Apply a charge to mobile bar on your O2 account to prevent any further charges whilst this gets sorted out.
