Xboxlive Account Hacked Aug. 22nd, 2011 @ 11:09 AM Reply

At like 3:30 in the am on Sunday my smart phone went off with a couple of emails confirming over a hundred dollars worth of XBox live points being purchased on my account.

You might think it's smart to do this on a Sunday since the bank is closed and I can't freeze the account for 24 hours.... but it's not.

It turns out Microsoft is pretty good at this whole 'computer' thing and they immediately realized that some fraudulent shit was happening and they froze my account, refunded my money, and contacted the police.

By the time I got to the bank this morning, everything was handled.

I got a new card and stuff anyway, just to be safe... but yeah, welcome to 'being fucked'.

It's pretty shitty you're such a lazy peice of shit that you're unwilling to work for your own money... but it's even worse to steal from someone like me, who doesn't have a lot of money to begin with, and also has a child. Yeah... way to go shit head. Make sure my child doesn't have new shoes or food so you can download a new zombie map... what the fuck is wrong with people?

That sounds indeed pretty sad. Hackers and viruses are evil.

Indeed, they reacted very good in that situation, thankfully.

On the bright side at least you didn't get screwed over like a certain online gaming network.

Welcome to the idea of a 'gift'.... most notably these gift things are given out around a December during a holiday called Christmas. Usually from loved ones and friends... which you must not have any of.

Yes, this. Very pleased with the way Microsoft handled the situation.

I feel what you mean, kind of, my account got hacked a few months ago. Although he didn't spend any money, he did do something kind of bad. He spent all the 1 million credits I saved in Halo Reach that was quite literally like my whole career savings. And then Microsoft locked my account for about 2 months.

I clicked the thread, expecting to have to post: "Yep, you're fucked."

Why? Microsoft had caught the problem, protected my account, refunded my money, etc.. before I even had a chance to get to the bank.

If you're going to use any online gaming device... XBox sounds like a good one to use.

My initial post probably came off a bit negative, for that I apologize... I was a bit agitated from my morning ventures. Yeah, everything is OK and for that I'm grateful, but I was still late to work and I still spent 2 hours at the bank making sure no other harm had been done, filing fraud charges (just in case) and asking them to issue me new cards. Plus, the post was a rushed, and bad attempt to point out what a fucking moron the thief must be...

If I could go back, I would make this post completely different. Instead of the negative, "Fuck you thief", I would create a positive "I love you Microsoft" post instead. After all, Microsofts wonderful customer service is the real focus of this story.

Agreed... I've never been more thrilled with customer service.
Fucking awesome job.
