Microsoft Points being awarded randomly

Many people have turned on their Xbox 360 consoles and discovered that they have more [hint=Microsoft Points]MSP[/hint] than they had put on. An article on shoptonews.net claims that it has been happening to many people randomly.

Some believe it is due to the Xbox Live Rewards system, however they have been getting more than they would have been rewarded. The continous pattern of thought is that it is due to the reward scheme, but those affected are getting more than they are due. Sadly this is seemingly at random, and not everyone is being as lucky.

The screenshot below is one that my friend kindly sent to me as an example. It reveals he has been given in total 2800[hint=Microsoft Points]MSP[/hint], yet if this was due to the reward system, he should've got 430[hint=Microsoft Points]MSP[/hint], and they don't dish out the points until the 15th of each month. Many people are getting different amounts, but for now, we are left clueless until Microsoft come forward with an answer.

I really want to be in the damn rewards program. Everyone getting all this points but it's over 18's only. I didn't lie about my age when I made my account so I can't get the points. Damn it Microsoft!

I got nothing :(

i went on my account and i have recieved 7 x 140 ms points!! it must be a rewards glitch but i love it got me some DLC so they cant take it back!!

I had an extra 1200 points last night, phoned support & they said it was fine to spend them got up this morning & they're gone again.

I haven't been so lucky.

Wooohooo I can post again. No more of that "Uh oh you have found a glitch" error.

It would be very unfair for them to ban people for spending the points. Especially since their own Support staff were telling people it was okay.

The extra 400 have been taken from my account now. Oh well, not as if I was meant to have them in the first place, though it would have been nice if @XboxSupport had been right.

I bet microsoft deal out bans for people who spend the MSP because you know what microsoft are like lol.

ive had 1300 nearly i thought its was the reward thing at first so just brought two themes this morning. this morning i got 460 (thats y i thought it was rewards) but just checked and i got 900 sitting in my account

Is there any way to see how many points have been added?
