[$$] Stolen Apple IDs in China Lead to Mobile-Payment Pilfering

China’s two mobile-payments giants said stolen Apple IDs were used to swipe customer funds, and called on Apple Inc. to address the issue. Alipay, the payments affiliate of e-commerce giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd., in recent days posted an online notice warning iPhone users, and saying some customers had lost money as a result. Alipay said it has asked Apple “multiple times” to pinpoint how the thefts occurred, and that the Cupertino, Calif.-based company replied it is looking into the matter.
