Didn't open it because, well, someone told me that it could be a hacker thingy/message. Did anyone else get it ?

You mean a phishing email? Opening an email without clicking,downloading anything would not "hack" you.

Umm, way to be vague. If it was on Xbox and doesn't have a gamertag its from Xbox LIVE. They send messages like that, rarely, but they do.

So the person who sent me it had no Gamertag ? It was on the Xbox 360 itself. Got it today. Gamertag - LIVE

Can you show us a screen shot? Opening it won't do anything to you.

Didn't bother to take a screen, I deleted as soon as I saw. Maybe I was 1 of the few 100s ? Perhaps you guys will get it sometime in the future. I think the beginning started with " This Xbox Live..." and thats all I saw.

It's nothing. They're just reminders and notifications. I used to get them on my alternate accounts.

LIVE used to send you notifications all the time from this account, I don't see it so much anymore, but they still do use it. So no, it's not a message that's going to hack you if you open it.

I have never heard of "LIVE" sending someone a notification. It has never happened to me. Learn something new every day.

Possibly telling you about some promotion it's nothing, I don't know why you got worried and deleted it, that's a bit pointless.

My friend sent me a message through live saying "thanks for using xbox live you will be shortly banned from using the services" or something like that it was more convincing the way he wrote it but I cant remember this was about a year ago. Anyways pint is he changed the name of the person who sent it to say xbox live don't know how don't ask??? pretty funny joke though :smile:
