  1. Xbox customer service is absolutely horrible


    So this morning my Microsoft account was hacked. I woke up to numerous emails from Microsoft saying this and that was changed in my account. Emails with confirmation numbers and codes. Somehow they got in and deleted my email and phone number from the
    account. So I call Microsoft support and they tell me that if they deleted my email, the account is gone for good. They would not be able to recover it. WOW!!!! So my four hundred movies purchased thru Xbox, and all my games are now gone. So if you get
    your account hacked it's gone for good. Isnt that great customer support??? I had to request a supervisor and they transferred me somewhere and just hung up on me. So great now I have to re explain everything and meanwhile the hacker is enjoying my account.
    So everyone be aware the Microsoft support can't recover your account if they get in to change your email. Pretty pathetic that a huge company like Microsoft can't recover an account that has been hacked. I suggest everyone be aware at how poor and unhelpful
    they are at helping someone who has lost thousands of dollars on an account. Think twice before pressing that buy button. It almost feels like I am the only one in the world that has been hacked like this. The customer service reps acted like there was
    nothing they could do and I just have to accept it. Pretty horrible considering how much identity theft and account hacking goes on today. If u get hacked on ur Microsoft account tough luck. The response i get from a multi billion dollar company.

    :)

  2. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE

    My xbox one console is only 6 months old and is broken. Microsoft will NOT honor the warranty and told me the console had been tampered with. I know for a fact that the console has never been touched besides just playing games. Very disappointed and I
    wont spend another dollar on anything they have to offer.

  3. customer service is absolutely disgusting

    I experienced the same results, but unfortunately instead of being from Xbox it was from Sony so yea depends on the situation. It was the whole reason I left them and decided to return to xbox. Sorry for your inconvenience with customer service that can
    be a pain in the butt after all that hassle.

    Xbox customer service is absolutely horrible

    Just a quick question, did you have the system activated where if something is changed on your account a text message is sent to your phone to verify its you trying to make the changes and not someone else?

    It doesn't make it all your fault if you didn't, and Microsoft should still do all they can to get your account back, but in the future you may want to look into that.

    Also don't accept it, keep at them and keep on trying to speak to someone higher up.

    The problem with most large companies is that get third party companies to deal with customer support, and a lot of times these customer support staff aren't paid the best wages and have to deal with a lot of abuse from customers.

    Still no excuse on their part, just letting you know why they may have hung up on you.

  6. The key is to talk with customer support and tell them that your account was hacked and that you need them to do an unauthorized access unable to recover escalation.

    This is what should happen.

    1. the support team should fill out a form to send to the escalation team these are some parts of the form.

    1. they will have you create a new MS account that does not have a xbox profile/gamertag attached to it.

    2. they will ask you for some information off of the console that your profile has been on.

    3. ask for the IP address for your internet where your console is at.

    4. ask for information that was on your account previously, Name, DOB, billing zip code

    they will then send this form up to the MS escalations team who will look over the information and determine if your account was hacked and that information is correct they will then move ALL of your account information including any licenses for games and
    movies over to the new account that you created at the beginning of the form. This is why it can not have a xbox profile attached to it because they will not be able to move the old account to the new account if there is one.

    Customer support can't get your account back, by design. There's a process for this.

    It is a pain if you account has been compromised because Microsoft has so much security in place but it doesn't help if the account has been shared out or if you're using a yahoo email address that's been compromised as the sign in for your account.

  8. Xbox customer service is absolutely horrible

    So, here it is 2 months later and still no word from Microsoft. I have replied to every request through email, since escalation department has no phone. I have received four different emails asking for different things to
    verify my account. Why did it take four?? Why was all the questions not asked in email number one, asking four different times just slowed the process down.

    Chatted each week with a different customer service representative. Still no word or sign of any work being done to recover my account. Some can't find my reference number, others claimed they needed to verify the email. (Which
    was a waste of time, I told him my account was hacked and which email is it verifying the hackers or mine. He replied with I can't tell till u verify the account. SMH!!) Each time it's the same story, we can't contact escalation you just have to be patient.....WTF,
    it takes someone 2 months to figure this out??? Everytime I ask to speak to a supervisor, they don't do anything different, or they plain hang up on the transfer and I have to call again and re-explain the whole situation again . I refrain from yelling or
    profanity when talking to these customer service representatives. Xbox/Microsoft customer service just plain sucks!! No one can help me get this account back, I just have to hope these escalation guys can figure this out in the next year???

    you reply to all the emails

    However if you are failing verification then not only that they can't tell you but can't confirm or deny that you got things qrong

    Everything must be accurate from the ORIGINAL information on the account

    You will only get a phone call if they need to clear things up
