Friend changed my gamertag to something offensive

Hi, yesterday my friends were over and we were playing some Xbox. When I went to the bathroom one of them thought it would be funny to change my name to this. As the name is offensive and he used the rest of the points that were on my account I was wondering if I could get a forced name change because I don't feel right playing online with this offensive name. As stated here, http://enforcement.xbox.com/Overview/Xbox-Live-Suspensions having a name with,

  • Profane words or phrases
  • Topics or content of a sexual nature
  • Hate speech (including but not limited to racial, ethnic, or religious slurs)
  • Unlawful drugs or controlled substances
  • Unlawful activities
would result in a forced name change. If anybody can help me I would really appreciate it.

You'll need to get someone to report you.  You can try posting in the suspension forum as well (forums.xbox.com/.../41.aspx) but there's no guarantee that the PET will respond there.

You can try posting in the PET forum, it's an unusual method but then it's an unusual situation as well.

FYI a forced name change is a mark on your record, you don't really want to have it on there, it is best if you have your friends pay for a name change instead of getting the forced one.  posting in the PET forum will really not help as that is only to find out why any enforcement was taken on an account not to ask for enforcement (FNC in your case).

I agree with Dave here, reporting doesn't seem like such a good idea for me.

As has been stated above, the best course of action is to make the change yourself at a cost versus having reported actions and being forced to change it, which will reflect as an enforcement action on your profile. Ultimately, the call is yours but both sides have been presented. As an additional note, you are always responsible for your account even if you leave it unattended, have kids playing on it, etc. I'm sure you are aware of this but just wanted it to be known. Good luck!

If you really want to go down the forced name change route then it takes at lot longer than 24 hours for the enforcement team to issue the change.They get 1000's of complaints per day to get through so it does take time.

Just to add if a force change is made it will most likely end your time as a Ambassador as well.
