My Gamertag Was Stolen

I was about to change my gamertag to my YouTube channel name. I sent a message out to all of my friends saying that I might change my gamertag to TeamCRBNStudios, and one of my friends thought it would be funny to actually steal the gamertag, and put it on a silver account. I just spoke to an xbox employee over the phone and he told me to come here to tell you, and you might actually get to issue the person who stole my gamertag a gamertag change. The only reason I am so upset and actually depressed about this is because it was for no reason and my YouTube channel has been growing very much recently. Please enforcement team help me to get my gamertag back.

Hello TAT XxGn4sH3RxX,

A rule of the forms: Do not display or say any Gamertag in a post!

Also, nobody can "call" a gamertag, once a member of the Xbox Community claims the gamertag, they cannot be forced to give it up, Enforcement cannot remove the gamertag from use. Im very sorry, you will need to either wait until it is free (when the person who has it changes his name) or choose another gamertag.

There's no way that anyone on the forums can do this for you.

Only the Enforcement Team can apply a forced name change, and even then only if it's offensive which would not apply to this one.

At this point I would suppose that your only means of recourse are to somehow appeal to your "friend" to change that Gamertag to something else to free up the name for your own change to that name. It would have to be at his expense, as he would also not be offered a free change.

They put it on a silver account to troll me...

It's not in any use at all, like I said... there's no point to just have an Xbox Live account running for literally no reason.
