Meet Aaron "coldraccoon" Mesec, an 18-year-old Xbox 360 owner from Murrieta, California. He's a gamerscore cheater.
He's a former cheater - or so he now claims to MTV Multiplayer.
Mesec was one of the gamers caught during Microsoft's attempt last week to reign in gamerscore cheaters. Microsoft won't say how many people have, like Mesec, been branded with a "Cheater" tag, had their questionable Achievements stripped and their gamescores re-set. But MTV Multiplayer heard that the number of users whose gamerscores were reset wasn't more than a few handfuls. The punishment is meant as a message to others.
And it appears to have worked on Mesec. "The cheating days are over for me. I just want to kick back and enjoy gaming again," he told MTV Multiplayer over the weekend.
