Call Turkish Airline or ask your credit card provider to cancel the transaction.

Probably not much help now, but in the future you do not need to cancel your flights just because the airline changes schedule. You can cancel, but you do not have to.

If the airline changes in such a way that you can't make your connection, it is their problem. They are still obligated to get you to your destination.

Try using social media to complain. Twitter and Facebook seem to get more attention from customer service agents these days than emails.

Or the usual Swiss way - registered letter to the Swiss subsidiary giving 2 weeks to reimburse or else you will escalate to a Betreibug.
