Spam bots

Hello, I've been asked by Xbox support to make a thread about spam bots spamming accounts (to bring it to the enforcement teams attention). Last night, I got similar messages from multiple gamertags banging on about live webcam shows. As kids use this service, these spam bots need dealing with before they become a bigger issue. I have the gamertags and conversations in full, but not sure I can post the gamertags on the forum, as they could be hijacked accounts.

The enforcement team does not use the forums. You can use the reporting and blocking features on the console to bring these users to the attention of the enforcement team.

Reporting does NOTHING! For every spam bot account that gets banned 10 more will be created! This is not a resolution at all! Essentially we're all being harassed on the service we PAY TO USE and were being told to do something that resolves NOTHING! There has to be something more Microsoft can do!

MS is working on this issue to help them you can report the user with the steps here https://enforcement.xbox.com/en-US/home/howTo#sub-topic2-0 This way MS can find the account and block them from this activity

Also, you can change your privacy setting for communications to friends only and this will prevent these type of account from sending you messages.
