It's not really a scam; he acquired the required amount of Bing points legitimately (from what I read) and thought that they'd sent the code(s) via email.

Anyways, I hope this doesn't happen to me, as I've around 600 Bing points and was considering buying Microsoft Points.

The Bing Reward Preview program ended now since 6-7 days. If you install the Bing toolbar now with IE8, you will get a nice message about the preview when you click on the reward button (displayed with the red ribbon). I live in Canada and i was able to get 4x 400 points by using real American addresses. I got the email with the redeem code the next day or the day after without problem. I used the points to buy some small DLC's and 1 small XBLA game. But at least 5-6 accounts were closed right away because the address I provided was not real (wich is strange, I used the same real address). Anyway, I can't complain, I got 1600 free points :D

Yeah, you have to follow all the rules and regulations. From personal use I know it does work.

to the OP, they simply closed your account because the american address you provided was not real or the person living at that address was not you. Any of the two. That happened to me 5-6 times, but 4 times, I got the code within 2-3 days after I ordered the 400 points. To Cheeese, Bing sent the codes to your email address and not to the postal address.

I tried to sign up to this about a month ago (UK resident also) but they wouldn't let me on as I wasn't US based. Never even got as far as entering an address etc, I'm guessing they got more proactive towards the end about not letting people with non-US ISP's sign-up in the first place.

ok scam maybe too harsh a word but he knew it wasn't a uk thing. So it was hardly legitimate.

This is still going on. I just now got done ordering another 400 points. As long as you are a US resident, you should be able to sign up for it.

He can always create a free US account, redeem the points with it and buy stuff with it..Then he can use whatever he bought with his UK account (anything except avatar stuffs). I have a free US account, I redeemed the 1600 MSP i got before on it and bought the XBLA and DLC with that account. After, I was able to use them on my main Canadian account. Everything you buy is tied either to your console ID and profile ID.
