    My friend bought a 10th prestige gamertag from a guy over xbox live, and after he paid the microsoft points to get it, the guy provided invalid info. He wanted me to ask here on se7ensins to see if anyone knew what to do about reporting the gamertags that had scammed him. What does microsoft do about it??

    Can you still report them for selling a gamertag and scamming over xbox live? I don't think he really cares about compensation, He said he'd rather find a way to get them banned.

    Btw, The accounts were

    HiiiiOctane
    and DillTime(It has 4 numbers afterwards, but cant remember)

    No, nothing can be done. Technically there was no contract of any sort, and considering microsoft doesn't allow the selling of gamertags (as previously stated), they wouldn't ban someone. The only way that person will get banned is if they violate the terms of service in some way.

    Selling a gamertag might be violating the terms of service but maybe not. Either way I doubt that they would get caught even if you reported them. And if they did get caught it would probably be a temporary ban.

    Now when we say "your friend" are we being hypothetical?
    10th prestige is a stupid picture next to your name that you can only see in CoD4 which no one will play sooner or later and "your friend" spent 20 dollars to get one?
    More the less got scammed... :wink:
