My gamertag is supposed to be Lambeaus. When I sign it it logs me into this fake account. I recently tried to make a post in the 'account suspended' forum, but it was blindly deleted by a moderator who didn't seem to read my post, judging by the email that was sent to me.
I know that my account has been hacked, and has been stuck in 'investigation' for two months. Why would the moderator tell me to open a case!?!?
My initial post...
My gamertag is Lambeaus. When I sign in, this is the account that comes up.
I am the victim of an account hacking. I was at work and was notified by some buddies that I was playing games that they know I don't play when they know I wouldn't be online. I checked and sure enough, my account had played games that I don't own. I also 'purchased' a couple of packs of MS Points (the second one was stopped by some sort of anti-fraud system....the other still sits as a charge to my credit card.
I realize that this happens, but I do not accept the process in how this is getting worked out.
I reported this as soon as I realized something was wrong. Was told that it would take 2-3 weeks to get it worked out.
2-3 weeks later, I called back only to find that they needed more information. It is unfortunate that I wasn't contacted, and had to find out on my own. How long would it had been held up if I hadn't called? I gave additional info and was told it would be another 2-3 weeks.
A few weeks later I was contacted, needing yet more information (a third email). I gave them that information, and was told it would be a couple days to a week until I would have my account back.
It has been over a week. I just got off the phone with a supervisor, and was told the same thing as the last half dozen calls I have made, that there was nothing that can be done. I tried to remove my credit card from my account, and can't even do that.
I am at a loss of words now. Don't know who can help me out. This is supposed to be customer service, but I'm not getting any!
Gears has been out for almost a month now, and I have yet to play online. Modern Warfare 3 is just around the corner, and it is looking like I am going to be late to that party as well.
I would appreciate it if I can get any guidance or information as to what I can do or point me to somebody that can do something.

The email I received in response to this post....
Your forum post was deleted by a moderator.
Posted to: 14 - My LIVE account was suspended
Reason: If you feel this occurred while your account was compromised and not in your possession, you may open an ‘Unauthorized Access’ case by contacting your local Xbox support number. While we work directly with Support during their investigation, please note that they will make all further contact with you regarding the details and results of their proceedings. We will be unable to assist you in this process. Be aware that this process may lock your account out for several days, during which time you will be unable to access Xbox LIVE. Additionally, until such time as the Unauthorized Access claim is substantiated, the suspension of the account will stand as issued.
All I want is access to a service that I have paid for! I have all the proof I would ever need to show that I am the rightful owner of this account.
Is this what customer service has come down to?
