"the individual in control of the fake account wrote: “light your pubes on fire and kill your family.”

Some people have way too much time on their hands.

interesting that the "fake" account was created back in 2012 though...

I wonder if it is an offical Twitter account that has been hijacked instead.

CowbopBeboy1088d ago

Xbox Support replied saying that it's a fake.

vishmarx1088d ago

@septic you're saying I shouldn't light my pubes on fire? (Puts down lighter. Picks up machete.)

People are stupid enough to believe it serves them right. They aren't even varified on Twitter anyways "meaning there's no varified symbol" so it's pretty obvious it's fake.

Perfectly put :D

We have PST, CST and we will probably see EST LOL.

and I am sure these accounts will be taken down shortly.

Let's be even-handed, though. Yes, the stupid people put themselves out there to be taken advantage of, but that doesn't diminish the culpability of the people taking advantage of them.

Stupid people deserve to be educated, not taken advantage of.

(btw, I believe you meant "vErified")

Ghost_of_Tsushima1088d ago (Edited 1088d ago )


I agree. People shouldn't believe this crap and at the same time they shouldn't be taking advantage of.

Also Twitter should be responsible and take the crap down.

CorndogBurglar1088d ago

I agree. Its like saying a woman deserves to be assaulted because of the clothes she was wearing.

Selfish people are dangerous.

I'd actually go along with it and give them dummy information to see how it goes.

Last time I did that with a craiglist scam I gave the guy messed up math equations and [email protected] as pay pal info.
