  1. Recovering Long Lost Account


    I am hoping someone can help with this, as it's been a problem I have been trying to find a solution to for almost six years and it seems like I can never find the right help.

    My Gamertag since the original launch of XBOX Live in 2002 is blocked and I can't find a way to access it.

    This is a long story so I hope whoever is trying to help will read it through. The Gamertag in question is Maximus03. Like I said I've had this account since 2002 and used it as my primary account for XBOX and a good amount of time for XBOX 360 before I
    lost access to it for about two months. I then created an alternate account which I've used to this day. After about two months I got access back to Maximus03 and used it as a secondary account on XBOX 360 and XBOX One.

    About 4 years ago when attempting to login to Maximus03 on XBOX One I got a notification to verify my account using the email address tied to the GamerTag. The problem with that is the email address was an account, and when we closed our comcast
    contract I lost access to the email address and Comcast effectively locked it down. So sending an email wouldn't work. I attempted to find other ways to do the verification however it all revolved around the e-mail address and I gave up.

    Every few months since then I attempt to use the account recovery tools on I enter the email I know its tied to and try to answer whatever questions I can. However it all revolves around me providing email subject lines, old passwords that I stopped
    using in about 2014, and credit card numbers that have long expired and changed.

    This Gamertag means something to me. I've had it for 17 years. I know the email it's tied to and the address and zipcode. I understand that the recovery page is what you guys have, but I have an extremely unique situation here with this account. Any information
    your site asks for is completely beyond my reach. I really would like some help, any help, any at all to get this account back into my possession. I don't want it lost to the ether. Can anyone please help me? Please work with me? I can discuss further and
    provide any details I have access to.

    Hey there Guilherme,

    Thank you for reaching out to us on the forums, in regards to a lost account you would need to follow the steps to recovering your account. I understand the frustration of not being able to fully recover the account due to some missing information but it
    is necessary to enter as much correct information as possible for better chances in recovering the account.

    The final step in recovering the account is going through the Account recovery form so you would need to fill this in correctly in order to recover the account.

    Take a look at the following support links for more information on recovering a lost account.

    I hope this helps.

    You can try calling Support to see if they can help you. As long as you know the email address that was connected to the account, which you seem to from your post, and the rest of the account information it is certainly worth a try
