LOCKED - Acquiring a seemingly unused gamertag

Is there some way I could contact MS and have them release that tag or change my tag to that tag? That's not the one I want but an example of a tag that seems to be unused.

No. There's no way to request that Microsoft free up a gamertag. Also, the tag could also be used on another one of Microsoft's services.
