Fake message alert

I was online playing BLOP in a private party, private game and suddenly I got about10-15 message alerts. Each one was from a different person on friend list, but there were no actual messages. The little alert things kept coming and coming. Any idea what was going on here? Anyone else have this happen?

So you were getting blank messages from actual people you know on your friends list? They weren't from random strange GTs?

Hello, what exactly did the messages say? Were they just blank? I received a random message from a few people this morning about sending a message to friends to receive 2,000 microsoft points, obviously I blocked communications with the user hence it is just a spam.

You can't send a blank message in the first place - Space will not send as well...

Was this from the msn messenger service not xbox messages.

The messages weren't blank. I would get the alert and then go to check my messages, but there wouldn't be any messages.

Are you sure it wasn't just alerts to let you know that your friends were coming online?

Yes I am 100% sure they were not messages to say my friend were jumping online. I have about a minute of constant alerts and each one was clearly about an incoming message.

I guess it was just some weird one time glitch.

It's odd that every occurance of this problem has involved Black Ops. If this was some kind of Black Ops specific hack it would've been far more widespread and near impossible to keep quiet considering how high value a hacking target that game is.
