Get A Banned Account Back (Enforcement Team Manners)

Permanently suspended and can't get your account back? Well I think you should be able to receive one warning for small actions like being a part of a modded lobby. If you're permanently suspended be able to buy your account back for a reasonable price.

I also think that the enforcement team should fit in with the customer support and actually learn how too type message responses instead of copying and pasting a reply.

    I got banned today for a week, I understood from my last ban which was for 24 hours as to why it happened, but this one makes no sense. I didn't send any hate mail or anything as to what they list on the enforcement website. It'd also be nice if they tell us what we actually did rather than giving an example or something and expect us to remember because I've done nothing since my last ban other than talk with friends in party chat. Sorry but the enforcement team is a joke.

    I have been warned by Xbox enforcement team 3 times for my posts I have released in to the activity feed, I have now been banned for a total of 24 hours. I have overlooked all posts and none of them violate the terms of use (could contain sex-racist-offensive content to other players)

    We have all been there we have said we got banned for no reason there is a reason Microsoft wouldn't ban us for nothin basically. You have your account if you go to and there should be a post comment section on there and post the foment if your not happy with the violations of code of conduct because I have seen what Microsoft do and some of the stuff is evil so go there and see if anything can be done good luck

    Gt...SurrealVenoX I have had a one week communication ban, it when it finished I then got a two week one, the same person and friends are trolling my account, second ban was for no reason as I didn't send any bad messages. Bought gta 5 and can't even play online, contact support they tell me to contact enforcement and there is nowhere to contact them, it's a joke

    Gt:hoeskiii got banned from party chat and messages til December 30 not as bad as other people on here and idk if I deserve it. I was doing a raid on destiny and a random joined us and left after he got the check point so I send him a message saying douche, he reported me after that I mean come on that wasn't cool and I could've reported him but I didn't. Stuff like that *** me off and this enforcement rule is dumb. Should've stayed at Playstation but noooooo my friends had to get a dumb box.

    my gamertag was changed....TampaxHero. this is stupid. the whole enforcement and ambassador program is a waste of time. When my subscription runs out i will be moving to PS4 and buying all physical copies from now on before i spend any more money on MS and risk losing it all.

    GT uV Frosty… I didn't deserve to be banned I got no warning and it wasn't my fault my brother was playing MW3 and a hacker made the whole team invisible… it wasn't our fault I've spent hundreds of dollars and 6 years of my life on that account… I just want it back… I'm even willing to pay a fine if I have too… I just want the account I spent a lot of time on back... Most of my games were bought digitally through the store… I've been nothing but loyal to ms.

    Devils reap3r would like a chat with the idiots who give out bans and hide behind a computer screen rather than answering a phone ....I'm banned for replying to a message from an idiotic gamer who abused me an didn't like my reply

  • AbatedSeven4 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    My sons account has been banned indefinitely for apparent "Account Theft Phishing Solicitation". This doesn't seem likely as he would not know how to do this as a primary school child. I want to get this looked into and account re-instated as soon as possible. Is this the forum to get this appealed. I have not seen any evidence to cause this ban on a good reputation account.

    My account got banned because my account was somehow linked to an NDA breach. I have tried to fight it because the photos in no way link to my accout. The television in the photo is from the UK and I am in the USA. I lost a 6+ year old account, all my paid dlc including the taken king, as well as my Xbox one, which is now a glorified Blu Ray player. I mean, I cannot get anyone to tell me how to clear my name. What do I do with an Xbox one that cannot access xbox live?

    Great get up this morning to play on xbox only to find I am banned from chat for 7 days?
    So I done a little digging around to find out who this enforcement team are and to my surprise it's made up of gamers who are moderators for xbox hence why no one can contact them.
    The whole thing stinks if you get a team who you are killing and winning decided to make a complaint against you will be banned especially if there is one of those moderators are in that team?
    The other thing you will have to be careful off is if you get a complete ban and you have spent hundreds of pounds downloading games you will lose them to.
    What I really find amazing the game is rated 18 yet you have kids playing it yet nothing is done about that?
    Instead you have jumped up gamers that get there *** kicked so decided to complain about you next thing banned.
    I have tried all day to get through to these plums but got no were
    With regard to swearing its in the game if they are that worried about people using bad language set an example don't have it in the game.
    My advice to you all even it is a pain complain about all the campers the ones that are abusive and even the ones that are red ping and bouncing all of the game as you can get banned for that too if you look at the dictators policies on good gaming.
    Myself thinks it might be time to switch to play station
    I never thought I would say that but it's becoming a joke
    I was even banned from using Skype too.
    So I goes to show that they are listening to everything as you have to ask the question why Skype
    Remember report anything and everything if you feel there is cheating bad langue under age gamers it's a pain but there doing it to you
    Over and out from one unhappy gamer

  • HalofollowerCS commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I have great friends who have been banned for no reason so please shorten the ban to at least a week so they don't need to get an entirely new profile and lose all of their friends and all of their gamerscore.

    Gamertag: texporter
    Got permanently banned a few weeks ago for supposedly "cheating". I have never been suspended or warned and have a good reputation. New "Enforcement Team" don't care or listen and had my plea rejected, now I cant ever protest against the decision. It was a Xbox live free weekend and played GTA IV which is an old game full of cheaters. Sometimes these modders give weapons, armour, money, cars, teleporting... without me even asking, and I get banned? If I ever got a simple warning not to play in matches where there are modders then I wouldn't.
    Microsoft should learn the word "Warning!". That's like shoot first and ask no questions later. Even that I am banned I don't care much about the Xbox360 as it's old now; but to ban me on the newer XboxOne as well they said. Now I will never consider buying one. Stupid company is losing billions for simply not warning people especially when I wasn't the one "cheating". Being in a match of cheaters or in a modded lobby made by someone else should not deem a permanent ban without warning. Microsoft have to review their banning system and Enforcement Team.

    And one more thing. Banned accounts are not even allowed to post here so I had to make a new one just for this. (Oh like I'm going to "cheat" in a forum).

    There seems to be a lot of people who have had their accounts wrongfully banned, suspended, or changed. This includes losing purchased digital content. The current appeals process is completely insufficient to say the least.
    Those of you who have had their account banned or wrongfully altered please email I'd like to hear about your situation.

  • An0nYm0u5JAMSK8 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Just got a permanent ban. It's all about this "Enforcement Team" ruining the community. Too strict, made up of bots, and don't care to look into or providing the proof necessary for the ban. In the 6 years of being online, I've had now 6 bans placed on my account in the past year, ever since the Xbox Enforcement team has been around, and the time that I've had my Xbox One. F*** microsoft.

    Have a good lawyer.
