As we hear of the release of the Apple iPhone 15, we also hear of one man's struggle with a repeat debit order. 

When you sign up for a debit order on a product that is specifically online and based in the US, it can be tricky to get any help from a customer service perspective. 

Which we think is what happened here. But before we get into that, let's share some info into what happened to this guy. 

Debit order dates are anything but harmonious for many people. It can be truly stressful when you see your money being debited. 

But what's more stressful is when you don't have any money in your bank account and keep getting debited. 

That's what happened to this guy who had a zero balance but was still being debited by Apple Music for his subscription. 

"Owning an Apple iPhone is a trip. One minute, the users are happily dunking their iPhones in water; the next minute, they are stressed out because of how expensive it is to maintain one." (MSN)

Now, with the highly anticipated release of the Apple iPhone 15, it doesn't seem like the add-ons are stopping iPhone fanatics from being a part of this community. 

The poor guy was obviously overwhelmed by the SMS notifications that kept haunting his phone. And it seems the community came to his rescue. 


Check out the screenshot video that he posted showing the five debit orders that were processed even though he had a zero balance. 

A person helped him out by commenting, "change your card settings to "disable online payments" it won't charge you when it declines." (TikTok)

What also surprised us was the amount of people that resonated with his circumstance. Some said they get charged ridiculous amounts with failed debit orders while others shared how they had the same experience.
