Found 28th Oct 2011
Was looking for the '2 months for £2" and found this on Xbox dashboard instead. Wasn't there yesterday!

Might be linked to my Battlefield 3 installation this morning though.......I had let my Gold membership slip some time ago.....

Still a decent price though for people unfamiliar with this option to be made aware of.

It's 'Oolong'. He balanced stuff on his head. Or rather, his owner put stuff on his head and then took photos of him.

Do that to your kid and you'll have the NSPCC/police come round your house. Do it a rabbit and it's 'cute'....

Strange world.

Thanks for that will logon and check for it now..

Not again

I find these posts useful when my xbox live expires - thanks

I used this offer last year, you must have a credit/debit card or Paypal account linked to your gamertag.

On Wednesday I switched my console on and was greeted by amessage saying that my details were incorrect. After doing a password recovery on windows live I discovered that somebody had gained access to my account and used 4000MS that I had on there.

When I contacted Microsoft I was told that my account will be locked for upto 25 working days while they investigate. This means that I cannot use any of my purchased content until it is unlocked (I have had my account for 4 years so this is a considerable amount of content).

When I asked for my credit card details to be removed from the account I was informed that this cannot be done while the Gold offer purchased using the card was active. The only way to remove the card is to close the account completely which would also mean I would lose all of my content.

Having searched on several Xbox user forums I have discovered that this has been happening to people for several weeks (maybe months) and that it seems I was quite fortunate that I discovered what had happened before the person who used my account had had a chance to change the password or migrate the account to another country.

It would seem that Microsoft are unwilling to admit that there has been a breach of security somewhere as the one thing every person I have been in contact with and every story I have read is that when phoning Microsoft they will lead you to believe that it just an isolated incident and is probably due to something you have done which has allowed someone to get your password.

Sorry for the long post but I believe people should be aware of what is going on. One thing is for sure I will only be using prepaid cards from now on, that is when I get my account back (in the event that doesn't happen I will never be purchasing from microsoft again.

i 100 and 10 percent agreed with microsoft breech of microsoft gamertag, it has happened to someone i know, someone managed to hack in to his xbox account used points valued 95 pounds and then took his account to russia. microsoft either need to wake up accept the breech and sort something out.
i just think bcoz its not big as media base, like ps3 hacking were they aint going to do anything. microsoft are very rude and hard people to get through on telephone and thats from my personal experience. they just dont have nothing wont listen to you so abdomen about what they know.
