  1. Bot accounts?!


    I am a hundred percent sure that I am not the only one who gets these messages from what I believe are bot accounts. These are accounts with 0 gamerscore, start by messaging you "Hi" and if you reply, tell you that they found your GT under their recommended
    list on the Xbox App. After that they ask you, and I quote "how old are u?", I'm getting sick of these messages and if someone starts off a conversation by asking for an age then I'd call that a bit fishy if you catch my drift. Point is, has anyone else been
    getting this lately?

  3. Bots

    Bot accounts?!

    Hey Kosmo The Gizmo,

    Yes they are currently some of the Bots going on and they should be aware of that.

    The best thing you can do is to report the messages you get and block the accounts so they cant message you again.

    3rd playthrough, scavenger bots not working

    I didn't mean 3 bots at a time (how do you even get 3 scavenger bots? My friend just somehow ended up with 3 of them with no clue what she did differently compared to me...), I meant 1 bot/playthrough in 1 spot. Like, 1st playthrough, deploy bot. 2nd playthrough,
    deploy bot at the same spot. 3rd playthrough, bot flashing red in the exact same spot. That's what's going on with my bots right now and I'm wondering what's going on. Bots bugged or what?

    Report & block via your console.

    If it's that much of a problem then set your comms to friends only until this dies down.

    This sort of thing happens every so often & will stop soon.

    bots?

    Yes bots can do this through the web interface. There was a problem earlier in the year with bots sending messages no both xbox and playstation. If this happens do not reply to any of them. Block them and report them. As long as you do not reply or do
    anything that violates the code of conduct or Term of Use then you will not receive an enforcement action.

    bots

    Like everyone said, it's best to block and report them. They are aware, and take action on those accounts. I have noticed an uptick in them recently as well. It's a back and forth with security features and ease of use for regular users, and is a tricky
    balance to keep spam out, but still make it easy and have all the services tied together across the Microsoft Account for regular users. Spammers use new technology and tactics, while security folks at Microsoft work to keep spam accounts out, while real
    new accounts in.

    Reporting and blocking does more than just block them for you, but provides human feedback on what accounts are bad so they and their machine learning can get better at detecting them, and where they come from, to prevent them in the future, so please keep
    doing your part in reporting those accounts.
