Assuming you had proper proof (ie something better than "this guy was doing better than me therefore cheat") good man.

Well that's a load of BS he's just shovelled your way. If he could hack and ban you he would've just done it instead of threatening you before hand. What he's just done is given you fair warning to take the correct measures (checking all your passwords are actually good 'uns and so forth) and put himself at risk of a permaban for no gain on his part. Unless he gets his jollies from trying to scare people on the internet in which case he needs to get out more.

Word to the wise for any would be hackers who want to try the "scare 'em into giving me free stuff" tactic; phone support have nothing to do with enforcement. As such he can phone all he wants but nothing will happen. Phone support lady was essentially shovelling BS his way (can you feel the irony?). As an aside this also applies to the file complaint feature, if you've done nothing wrong then he can file all the complaints he wants but nothing will happen.

Worst he can do is track your IP address which could potentially allow him to perform a denial of service attack on your connection (prevents you getting online). Should that happen simply call your ISP to get it sorted and at your discretion get the police involved as DOS attacks are highly illegal.

and about his mod, he was shotting people with a sniper rifle and the whole clip would be gone in no less then a second thats why i called him out about it and was asking him and he just flipped out on me.

and that kinda makes me scared to join xbox live partys now =/

Hello Knuckles!

Vernier gave you a stellar answer. Just as a summary, check out this article regarding Harassment on Xbox LIVE here to lear what you can do in this situation + Never give out your Windows LIVE ID or Password and it is impossible to get hacked. Don't be scared to join Xbox LIVE Parties. Stick to the tools you have in your Xbox Guide and you'll be all set =)

 

Feel free to respond to this thread with any additional questions you may have =D -Civiks

 

 

 

EDIT: Also, Vernier is correct again. Do not call out other users on the Xbox Forums. Familiarize yourself with the Xbox.com Guidelines.

If it was a bolt action rifle he was using then I'd say that was a mod of some kind. If it was one of the semi autos (Barrett 50.cal for example) then you're going to have to consider whether or not that's actually a good trigger finger combined with the kill cam playing silly beggars. 

Just something to consider at any rate.
