Account Hacked FAQ

I know I shouldn't be doing this, but it seems like a lot of people are getting their accounts hacked lately.

For whom that think their account is compromised, call support right away at 1800-4My-Xbox. Also, file a complaint on the user or contact the XBLPET Team if you didn't file a complaint. The Hotline for support is FREE. No need to worry about paying money, hence it is a 24/7 free hotline.

The only way someone has "hacked" you online is if they phished you to do so, such as them thriving/tricking you into giving them personal information, such as your email, password Etc.

Be safe, hence there are a lot of reports of "hacks". So please, if anybody threatens to "hack" you, take it seriously. File a complaint on the user, avoid the player, and block communications.

People just need to take the time to read, understand and follow:

support.xbox.com/.../account-security.aspx

If they do that they can avoid getting 'hacked' in the first place. I recommend a seperate e-mail account for XBL. One that you don't use for any other website or service and a very strong password.

Yeah true, but it seems like I ran into a few people on here who seemed to get their account "hacked", having them never read that link. Just thought it would help others that didn't read it. :)

Should realy be 'Account compromised Faq' rather than 'hacked' as you can not be 'hacked' on Xbox Live.

 

Most people who claim to have been hacked have had their account compromised because they aren't good with their own security.  Either they give out there Windows Live ID's out to people they don't know, get phished, have weak passwords or try to get so called 'Free MS points'.  They don't get hacked though. 

 

Even if the whole Live system was compromised like PSN, they don't do it to get ONE account, they do it to get them ALL.

People would rather spread around the myth of being hacked than admit they were greedy/idiots though.
