ok, i don't know if this is posted in the wrong section, so sorry ahead of time if it is, but i need an answer. so i don't know if anybody else has encountered this, but earlier today, i got 2 spam messages from one of my friends.
1st message: "Hey guys, there is a new Xbox.com glitch to get 1000 Microsoft points, check out the details in this link: [mod removed: link removed]]"
2nd message: Hey guys, there is a new Xbox.com glitch to get 1 Month xbox live free! check out the details in this link: [mod removed: link removed]"
so, i did what i ALWAYS DO when i get spam messages, i ignored them. well, while i was hanging out with friends during the afternoon, a couple other friends of mine start texting me, saying that i'm apparently spamming them with the same kind of messages i received, and apparently everyone on my friends list got 3 spam messages from me. but here's where it gets strange, after the 2nd spam message, i'm told that my account turned silver. so question....HOW!?!? HOW do i lose 3 months of my gold membership?! it's not supposed to expire till july!! on top of that, my account isn't suspended, otherwise i wouldn't be posting this, and i wouldn't have been able to log onto my account. i don't see how i was "hacked" if my account was never compromised, someone PLEASE enlighten me.
and before anyone says "did you give your account info out?" the answer....is NO. i'm not stupid, i mean really, who gives out their info? anyway, if ANYONE (preferably a moderator/admin, etc.) can explain how i lost my gold membership in this situation, it would be GREATLY appreciated.
