  1. Xbox Bots linked with inappropriate sites


    I had a bot (or possibly someone looking for information on me) message me today. At first i treated it like a normal person until i figured out what it was. Thats when i continuously said “i like trains” it tried to get me to go to a website (which i did
    not do) i am making this post because there is no way to report a bot or suspected predator on xbox or the microsoft website. You cant even contact them to let them know these people are on here. Parental safety measures can only go so far these days, and
    kids around the 13 year old range typically take the restrictions off on their own. A kid could easily get fooled by this. All i want xbox and microsoft to do is allow us to report bots and inappropriate players in general, and not just for their gamertags
    or cheating

    :)

    I also get a large amount of messages from these honeypot scams. I keep replying with stupid stuff like "Oh, ok." Until they post the link to their website and ask for credit card information then I report them.

    Unsporting Behaviour

    "Honeypot scam and promoting adult webcam websites"

    I only reply to them to get them to incriminate themselves so the enforcement team has enough data to take action, since they can't really punish someone for saying "hey, you wanna see something cool?" (That's not at all what they say, but it's a decent
    placeholder)

    I would really appreciate it if they did add a new category for scams like these, because "Unsporting Behaviour" doesn't sound as important as "Predatory scamming which breaks the actual law"

    As many other people have pointed out rather curtly, Report, block, and move on. There's really nothing that can be done beyond that point.

    I want Microsoft and Xbox to see this so they can bring up a better solution for everyone, not just me

    At the moment all we can do is block the gamertag and report it but I understand how you feel my niece and nephew both use my xbox and it does worry me about who is talking to them
