Earlier this year, I purchased Xbox Live Gold for my XBOX 360. Everything went smoothly, and I was up and running. Although, I moved the console outside of my wireless router location and therefore haven't used the Xbox Live for the previous months. Anyway, I've received a different console for Christmas and it's well inside the boundary for my router to pick it up.
However, there is quite a large problem; I don't remember my Microsoft account and therefore can not get underway on my Xbox Live account. I've tried numerous times to retrieve my account and the password, but I just can't do so. Over the period of my attempts all I have succeeded to do is finding the passwords to old, unused Microsoft accounts that have no use to me - like the one I've made a Xbox Live profile on, whatever that is.
All I ask for is someway of verifying my identity and therefore retrieving my account details. The details I know is my Xbox Live [Gold] gamertag that I used and the phone number I included in the sign up process, as it hasn't been changed at all since. I also have a great idea of which credit card I used to purchase the Xbox Live membership, (what I mean by this is I must have the card still with me and through some trial and error I will eventually identify which card I used). Also, if I do discover the correct e-mail associated with my Xbox Live account, I genuinely believe I would know the password as I've used it quite vastly for accounts on other websites. Although, I do not have a clue what the answer to my security question will be, or even if there will be one for that matter, for the reason that it's a blur to me.
I really do hope there is some way I can get these details back, and put them down somewhere safe.
Please help me, thank you in advance.
