The Case of the Gamertag Theft – Part I

NextGN writes: "This kid is basically the equivalent of a cyber-thug, instead of mugging old ladies on the street for their purses he goes for gold – Xbox Live Glod, that is. That's right. He attempts to hack your gamertag and then holds it for ransom: Xbox live subscription code."

Good to see the community is speaking out against these crooks... but come on! QUOTE THE SOURCE!

nice to see one go public but this is a real risk to anyone who uses live imo
worst part about it is that ms wont do anything about it either.

Wonder how often this happens to people. Hopefully not a lot.

You're still outta luck and M$ customer service is of no help? I'd be upset to say the least, but at least you didn't have over $200 in M$ points attached to your account like the one my younger brother stole (figured out the password to) a year or two ago.

He still never told me how he did it but i think it was more like he broke into someones house, stole their entire 360 and tv, and it just happened to have auto-login with a bunch of already paid for points. He's no "hacker" so that had to have been what happened.

Such an appropriate name for this kid...

If you check the date on the thread (original source) it was from last year.

Has this happened to anybody on N4g? I am not into achievements or trophies but I would be pissed off if I got my friends deleted. What a pos, doesn't he have anything better to do? Like getting a gurl lol
