I had my account hacked day before yesterday, whilst I was playing, very strange. I signed into another account where I was a friend, to see this guy had downloaded street fighter and was playing it (cheeky mf). Anyway, although they he/she changed the password I could still sign in online, and I see they bought 6000ms points.
Straighty away I call xbox, who say they suspended the account, 6 weeks until resolved, might get money back might not etc etc. Anyway, my issue is not with the 6 weeks, although it is very slow. My issue is that the downloads were near enough ALL from what I had viewed that day. I viewed dead rising 2 and decided not to buy (by view I mean I read the content and saw some of the screenshots), I viewed street fighter 3, I viewed magic gathering, and all three of these games were then downloaded.
I'm not stupid, I didnt click buy, by accident. I even leave an old CC on account in case that ever happens, so I get a fail if I don't change payment option. In any case if I had, they would be on my Xbox and they are not.
Its just weird, its like xbox got the hackers to download things I might like, so they can posible say in the future we are not giving money back and I might actually let it slide. I Have to say if I don't get my money back (and I have already stopped the card from my bank and instigated a charge back against the purchase), then I will leave Xbox Live and just play offline or have a silver membership. Its not a threat, i'm 27, I don't need to play games, I only do so for an hour or so a week anyway. It just makes me mad that this obviously has happened to others, but I cant find much information on-line about it.
Anyway, heads up to everyone who has same password on their EA / windows live account as they do on their xbox live account. I would change them quickly. Apparently this is the cause. I Hope it doesn't happen to you.
