I just read a message from "IV MYSTERY IV" that said this

"Your xbox live account is currently being monitored due to you being a fag. For further information due to this act please contact us at 1-800-Fuck You. Thank you"

I have not played an online game in a while. No idea where this person would have seen my account too. Anyone else have experience with messages like this?

It's probably someone who still has you on their recent players list from whenever you play last who is being a dick.

Quite IV mysterious IV.

@immortalsaiyan: I'd report the account. And depending on the level of concern you feel possibly change your password? I mean it very well could be some stupid 13yr old just trying to fuck with everyone in their recently played history but you also never know what capability people have.

I chuckled at the message but the number ending in fuck you, eh. EAT-A-DICK would have made the rest work for me as a joke.

Report that sucker. Homophobic language goes against the Code of Conduct. At the very least, he'll get a temporary communication ban.

@slyspider: I don't know what you are implying, but in my 6 years of Xbox 360 ownership I have found the community nothing but supportive of all people, especially women and minorities. This must be an isolated case, and we must treat this mysterious person with sympathy for whatever emotional duress he (or she) is currently under.

Or he's a dick.

Weird message? That's a normal message on XBL, I am more surprised when I see something polite.
