Didn't they used to offer something for purchasing all the games? Like a Microsoft Point refund or getting the last one free? Is that still going on?
My account was hacked back in September. I had it back by Halloween. It was close to 25 days it was shutdown.
They took me for 95$ of points, and spent it all on FIFA product. This interview actually lines up with my experiences very very closely.
As far as them claiming it was a phishing scam... I don't really believe that. I use separate passwords for major websites (anything I have to put my credit card into), and my Windows Live ID was no different. I have no idea how they got a hold of my information, but I think there might be a bigger problem at hand here.
Best way to keep this from happening? Delete your card information from your account and console. If the information isn't stored on the XBox live server, it can't be used for fraudulent purchases. Annoying that you have to re-input the card for each purchase, but in this case, it's better safe than sorry.
-my two cents
Disappointed we didn't hear any followup to this story on the bombcast this week. Seems like a pretty huge story.
