  1. I have been threatened by someone posing as a microsoft employee


    Hi,

    Following a bit of a enquiry with another xbox player, I am now on the receiving end of someone impersonating a microsoft employee.

    When the original player suddenly ceased messaging saying I was reported to microsoft and within minutes I recieved a message from another profile saying the following.

    Good evening your account has been found in violation of terms and regulations of xbox live your account will be going through investigation and if these claims with your account appears to be accurate your account will be permanently delete it from the
    services.

    This is exactly how the message was typed twice with a deleted message above them. I have found out no microsoft employee would send me this so it's obviously a fake and connected to the original xbox player I was in contact with. This then means they are
    threatening action on my account when they can't.

    The original player even messaged me asking if I had been messaged by xbox telling me the words the supposed xbox employee used. I have both reported through xbox now and hoping something gets done.

    To be clear the threat came through normal messaging system from an xbox app, not in the messages from xbox live section.

    If anyone gets anything like this report it.

    If someone could confirm this is all fake I would be grateful.

    :)

    Hi!

    This is absolutely fake.

    I doubt any official Microsoft employee would even inform you that they're staff. They'd likely just go ahead and do whatever they'll do.

    Also, in regards to this:

    "Good evening your account has been found in violation of terms and regulations of xbox live your account will be going through investigation and if these claims with your account appears to be accurate your account
    will be permanently delete it from the services"

    If there was a problem with your account, you wouldn't receive a message like this. You'd get an email from the Xbox Enforcement Team who would highlight the actions they're taking and they'd inform you why they're
    taking such actions.

    Don't worry about this. Just block them, and have a good day!

    Hi! Yes, it is all fake. Only the enforcement team can investigate reports and issue bans. Plus, they don't message users. Users will only get a notification of being banned.

    Hi poppy

    It sounds like a fake to me anything regarding account issues would come thorough official xbox live not through normal messaging. you have done the correct thing by reporting it.
