Was I Hacked?

Last night I noticed that 240 MS points had suddenly appeared on my account (I previously only had 60...tough times)....I figured it was some rewards thing and I thought I'd sit on em til I decided what to get.    Now it's back down from 300 MP to 60 MP with no explanation, no email saying I had bought anything or that points were added, nothing.

It all just feels weird and I am concerned for my Bank Account now if this was some sign that I am being hacked.

What do you guys think?

if you check billing.microsoft.com it should give you a run down on the points purchase..i would call just to make sure nothing happened though.

I was thinking if it was a hack/scam that they somehow bought points with my account and then "gifted" it to themselves or...I don't know, it's all just very suspicious.

did a chat with a support person who suggested I call the 800 number to talk to them but she said she suspected it was a "glitch" and I hadn't been compromised..........hope so.

Ahh.......did a little googleing and found several posts at many sites in the last four months, the latest two weeks ago, reporting the same thing.  

Consensus is that is a Rewards glitch, guess I should have spent them while I had them.   Oh well, I'm calling support anyway but I have the feeling that it really is just a LIVE glitch and not hacking.
