That would be 100% illegal. If they were caught truly doing this, they would be in deep trouble.
As much money as Apple makes, I highly doubt they would risk ruining their business by such a drastic and stupid move - only to be rewarded with a possible few million dollars a year in rewards, compared to their billions in current rewards each year.

Somebody probably took your card info. If you have a windows computer, there was probably a key logger on there that got past your security system. Since the person tried to buy minecraft (a computer game) and buy stuff off of apple, they are clearly not apple. Just some asshat who took your info. Change cards now before they take more money.
There was also a transaction from a company called Minecraft also in the UK who took 26.00 from my account on the 16th of Feb and then credited it back on the 17th. I also have no idea who this company is or if the two is related - but thank god they put back the money)
Minecraft is a sandbox-building independent video game written in Java originally by Swedish creator Markus "Notch" Persson and now by his company, Mojang

Apple nor mine craft were stealing from you. This happens all the time. When you use your card in a store don't let it out of your sight. When you bought the knife the sales person could have taken a quick picture of the front and back of your card in about 2 seconds. Then they proceed to use your card online. Like buying songs and the game mine craft. So basicaly someone stole your card info and is using it online. You need to get a new card with different numbers.

They did not try to buy Minecraft. Minecraft is the name of a company according to customer service who is also in the UK. They did not have a telephone number for them.
