1. Make sure your email anything besides @live.com @hotmail.com

Note* If your email is @live.com or @hotmail.com go on your xbox and change your WLID by going to Manage Account > Change Windows Live ID

2. Go to account.live.com
Scroll to the bottom and click Close My Accont

You have no email on your account now! This will prompt you to add email on your xbox if you sign in on the dashboard, but until you add one your account is Unhackable, Unjackable, Unphishable, etc..

If you wanna be dumb and make sure
Go to Manage Account >It will show your email as "Unavailable"

Just add an email back on to your account and then recover it. This is mainly for people who keep one xbox or move their account using a USB/HDD. It's easier that way anyways, recovering sucks.

One of my friend just recently found out that his account does not exist.

Wasn't the lack of an email what allowed several accounts to be jacked last year?

But without email doesn't it mean the accounts can be taken easier?

How can you take an account if you can't recover it?

I think I read that without an email you pretty much just change the tag of another email-less account and then add an email or something along those lines.

It was back when Jester jacked a bunch of AK47's tags (or whatever went down involving the jacking of "God" and other tags) and the chatlogs posted talked about it. (Again, I think. This was months ago and I didn't really read far into it.)
