    There is an Unknown party that is creating several new accounts by the day messaging...


    Hello Xbox community members,

    This is meant to be a report against an unknown party that has contacted me with 5 different accounts out of the blue trying to get me to give them my personal information. I have received messages from people I don't know out of the blue before trying to
    start conversation with an obvious end goal at mind for them. In this case, I have been contacted by 5 different accounts and I am 90% sure that it is the same person making the accounts OR it may also be a small illegal "company" from another country perhaps
    similar to telemarketers. Below I will state word for word the messages I've been receiving as well as the name of the account.

    [mod removed]

    Now I'll admit, I responded in a very rash and inappropriate matter. Upon being messaged from the 5th account I was very upset and felt that I had to stop them myself somehow. Everything I said to [mod removed] was done in an attempt to "scare" them
    off from messaging me over and over again. I had no intent on taking "action" on them myself because well, I wouldn't actually know what to. I thought maybe if I used their tactics against them then they would get worried and stop their "operation". Again,
    I can't stress this enough. Everything said by me was said in attempt to scare them off from harassing myself and other fellow Xbox community members and I had no intent on doing anything to them myself as I wouldn't know how to or want to. I would not have
    said what I did if I believed that the person contacting me was a legitimate member of the community, I trusted my gut in recognizing a scam artist when I saw one because I have experienced this in the past.

    I had not responded to the message from the first account because I knew that It was not legitimate so I ignored them. The second account that had messaged me raised my suspicion that it could be the same person because they had messaged me only 2 days
    later and with another default Xbox name generated account. Upon receiving a message from the third account which was in the same day that the second account messaged me with yet another default name generated account I was certain that this is the same person
    or a random group of people who do this to other Xbox community members as well not just me, with a clear motive of something to gain.

    When the fourth account contacted me with such a unique and odd message, I quickly realized that since I hadn't responded to them thus far, they would start attempting to "personalize" their initial message to try and lure me into talking to them. One of
    the reasons I am making this post is to give awareness to fellow community members so that they will be smart enough to recognize a scam when they see it. Hopefully this will prevent us as a community from believing people like the one presented and be-friend
    them. Sooner of later they will start to ask you personal questions that should NOT be given over the internet under any circumstance. I am thankful that I am the one they contacted (this time) because if it had been someone else that may have related to their
    personalized message it would have gone very bad.

    Now the fifth and final new account that had messaged me was when I decided to make a response. As I mentioned above, I could have handled it better but at the time I knew that I was replying to an illegitimate account that doing illegal activities so forgive
    me for removing my language filter. I think that the messages I received from [mod removed] were of clearly of mal-intent and I was asked several personal questions and was then requested to visit a pornography site. I don't needed to decipher the meaning
    behind this persons messages because they made it very clear.

    I look forward to seeing the Xbox support team and Moderators presence on this post because it is a very serious issue. If we can't stop people like this imagine how many community members will be persuaded to give out their personal information to
    random people that have maliciously gained their trust on a platform that we all love so much and is supposed to be "safe" and protect the interests of their members.

    Thanks for reading and if you found this post helpful please feel free to share it to your friends so that we can bring awareness to this danger and stop these people before they start ruining the lives of our fellow Xbox community members.

    :)

    There is an Unknown party that is creating several new accounts by the day messaging members of the Xbox community sharing illicit content and attempting to steal their personal information.

    I think I have had only 1 not account add me but not message me. I reported and blocked them. I would love to have my settings back to only friends being able to add me and message me again.

    I've been getting bot messages every few days for the last month. I know these come and go so I just block the sender.

    I had this happen to me, i replied knowing what their intentions were. I then took screenshots of the conversation and reported and blocked them. I suggest you do the same, this is an issue without a doubt xbox is looking into.

    Those are actually bots. It's something that comes up every now and then and right now there is a heavy presence of them. As already stated, just block and report them and the enforcement team will investigate them.

    Also, even if it wasn't bots and it was other gamers, please refrain from responding to them with profanity. That does violate the code of conduct, so you do put yourself at risk of a suspension for that.
