I thought I would give anyone who sees this some fair warning on a tag they may wish to block: Almgren 92

I received the following message from this user over XBL today. I should also note it came with a friend request... This is a direct copy/paste.

Hi! I can help you get 5000G in 10 hours. Im working in a company with gamerscoreboosting. We will not take ur profile ull just gett 5000G free. We have helped guys like Good Old Nick, Wreckondracjon and more. I know u may hecitate but please dont.

1. Horrible grammar.
2. I have no idea who Good Old Nick is.
3a. They got Wreckon's tag wrong!
3b. He would never have used such a "service"
4. I don't need to tell you how stupid this is...

For some of you with scores even higher than mine, things like this are probably old news. It just really annoys me and I needed to vent;) First time I've been singled out for such crap, and I'm not even at 60k yet:mad:

Is he a member on this site? If not, then x360a cannot really block his tag.

It's quite common. People trying to steal other peoples gamertags/accounts so they can check for points or credit card information.

Wow! You would think those people would spend just a little more time and try to at least make their offer seem valid. I guess people like this will never go away.

I got a diffrent one from him lastnight as well.

Hello! I Saw you on www.xbox360achievements.org and I'm just wondering if you can help me getting 1000G on any game. You will get 2100M Points if you help me. My other profile was stolen with alot of gamerscore and I dont have time to play so much.

pretty funny if you ask me ..

It's on live, it isn't here :) And these kinds of people are everywhere. That's why I never accept strange FR.

He is on here also..

Well, he's not in the database here so he must be a lurker. Unfortunately there isn't much I can do about him then. Just ignore him though.

Nice to know that this forum has a stalker that likes to try to scam people.

OMG... Some people will do anything to get an account. Who would actually fall for that?

I got this one also, I just blocked communications.

I don't get the second one. What's the point? If you're going to get himt he points, he;'d have to give you his profile information. Kind of negates the possibility of him getting yours?

ThrawnOmega
09-29-2008, 03:25 PM
I have not yet reported to Microsoft, but I should.

I'm guessing if they mentioned x360a by name to someone else, they may have just looked at our site leaderboard and started trolling for idiots...

Man I don't understand how people can fall for this nonsense? I mean really!

The really sad thing is that some people will fall for it! They deserve to be hit round the head with a wet fish!

Lol. Wet Fish.

Honestly though, who would fall for someone saying that kinda stuff? I'll give you 5000g? It's like me walking up to somebody and saying do you want 5000 quid.

I wish 1 point = 1 quid, I'd spend much more time gaming

Hmm, you must have played with him recently, or you may be in his recent players list when he tried to send a message to all friends and accidentally added recent players. I dunno, just speculation.

Northern Light

Well if he does indeed look over this forum then he could easily send anybody a message over LIVE as long as they have their Gamercard in their signature or under their user name.

We have helped guys like Wreckondracjon OHHH THE OUTRAGE

What the hell my name is not that hard to spell damn it.

Can't believe I've not seen this thread until now... if I didn't get the message below today and had not been on IM with Cru I probably still wouldn't have seen this...

Strange that someone that claims to know me and that has helped me with score is introducing themselves to me and asking me for help.

This is just sad, and it's funny that he claims he's helped you, and then decides to actually send you a message about this crap. The nerve of some people...

Isn't is sad? We have our own site stalker. I'm actually surprised you haven't been targeted sooner, since your score is more than double mine. Then again, you've probably had to put up a lot of crap like this before.

no, most likely he's just a lurker, Webb just said he's gamertag wasn't in the database. but of course he could be here under another name of course
