Apple security expert at work
If you're trying to email me, you can't, because the howling pack of monkeys at Apple shut off my email because of a "security reason." They also shut off my Apple ID. When I was finally able to reach Apple support this morning — and my guy John was indeed very nice — he couldn't tell me what the security reason was that led my accounts being shut off. I mean, was it an NSA attack or one of their Third World programmers in inadvertently hitting a random key on his or her computer while playing video games on his or her phone (probably an Android, since it would, by definition, be working).
So after a ridiculous session of verifying my identity, John said he could, within 24 hours, send me an email with instructions for reactivating my accounts. I pointed out to him that, in fact, his clown show security department, had shut off my email account.
Cue the Benny Hill music.
My accounts couldn't just be turned back on because the security monkeys have a wonderful fun game to play...we send a friend of yours a message, and within 3 hours on a holiday weekend you have to respond and maybe, just maybe, they can turn the accounts back on...exactly what you'd expect from a bunch of slacker morons with more time than sense,
Hopefully, I have this sorted out by the first of the week...
Count me a HAPPY APPLE CUSTOMER!!!
