View Full Version : I need to vent...

Sorry if this isn't a topic that should be made, but I'm just pissed off right now.

So my frined has had xbox live for roughly 4 years. We met back in halo 2 and have been real good buddies on live since then.

A few days ago, he sends me a message saying that he found a site that gives free MS points. Knowing that those are all scams, I sent a message back saying it's a scam. No answer.

A few days later, I get a text from him on my phone saying his account has been hacked and he's trading in his xbox. I told him not to, but he wouldn't listen. I assume he's traded it in by now. I tried texting him earlier and have yet to get an answer.

The thing that pisses me off is that damn dirty hacker. What right does he have to steal someones property? He should be ashamed of himself. He takes away my friends' account simply so he can advertise his site that steals from more people? Hell, 95% of the live community knows that it's a scam. It worse because it was one of my best friends on live. I thought that he would just get a new account, but he didn't listen to that either. I guess it's a pretty discouraging feeling when your account gets hacked; why get a new one when it could just as easily be taken?

I know no one on this site does that, but I didn't know where else to post. I just needed to vent...

Hey pal! I can completely understand how angry you are feeling right now! yes most of us are aware of these scams but unfortaunately not everyone is.

I hope your friend can set up a new account soon and you can play online together again and this time he will know to avoid such scams.

He wasn't the one who told me about the free site. It was the hacker who sent the message.

Damn, that sucks for your friend. But there's really nothing you can do about these kinds of people to take pleasure from making other people miserable. But I wouldn't worry, they'll get theirs eventually. But I guess I your friend learned a lesson though. All sites that ask for your e-mail/password/Gamertag are scams.

You'd be surprised at how many people send me messages saying that they're going to hack me. It of someone sends you message telling you they're going to hack you, it's a 99% chance it's fake.

I'm not a girl, so thast joke made no sense.

Also, yes, my friend wasn't the smartest guy on Live, but he was still a person. Just because you think you are smarter that him (which I doubt you are considering you are trying to start an argument over the internet) doesn't mean that he deserves to have something taken from him like it was.

Well I'm glad that you got it out of yours system, but over here you're preaching to the choir. We're not like the 95% of the rest of the live community, we're a little better informed. But the next best thing we can do is inform our buddies for future references.

Sorry that it happened, but this time he's the example that people need so they know what to expect when they aren't mindful about what's out there.

I know that. I was just trying to make his joke seem dumb, which I guess didn't work :P

that exact same thing happened to one of my best friends in real life. he lost like 35k, luckily he didnt have any credit cards on there.
he was going to sell his xbox i think, but luckily i told him all about the upcoming games he would miss out on.
hes now restarting and beging to long climb back up the gs latter. i dont think i could do it personally.

Of course it is a big upset for you. On the other hand your friend is kind of a noob. Also not replying to you any more. Bit strange to me.

Well hopefully he'll sort his mess out and come back under another game
