Fee to unban an xbox 360 live account

To get a life ban from xbox live without recourse is ridiculous. There are people in jail serving less sentences for more severe charges. I believe there should be a system put in place to pay to get your account back. Like a fine or fee to bail your account out of jail/permaban and is then monitored closely until the time it is deemed ok to not be monitored any more. Like a parole officer.

Major Nelson confirmed that Xbox One purchases on a banned account are retained, but not on the 360. Some of us have had accounts for many years and now we've lost hundreds of dollars in purchases.

The fee to unban your gamertag should be based on the severity of what the Enforcement Team finds. This is win-win for Microsoft. They'd have happy customers with their accounts back and it's more money for Microsoft.

    This should never happen there is a reason people are banned they need to stay that want to protect the people who just want to have fun without all the ignorance.

    La conduite de chaque membres doit être exemplaire. Nous sommes en démocratie ici, pas dans une zone de guerre. Merci de respecter les autres membres de la Xbox et de Windows 10 s'il vous plaît, merci.

    Faut éviter d'insulter les membres et être menaçant ou violent verbalement mais certains joueurs sur le multijoueurs font de l'anti-jeux, sont irrespectueux et passe leurs temps à tricher et utiliser des glitch

    I don't have much money but I would scrape together hundred notes in a heartbeat for my account back and because of the ban it would be very very unlikely for me to break the ToS again because I would be so frightened of getting banned till 9999 again, make it happen Microsoft. Or at least let us have access to live with other banned users.

    It's unfair my friends and other players cheat and mod but only get suspended, 4-6 times and don't get banned.
    My account iVesna is banned and I want to give some evidence why my account iVesna shouldnt be banned. I have submit a case review and I believe I didn't give enough evidence that was need for my situation. I know my account got suspended before so I try to stay out of trouble so I wouldn't get my account banned. My account do have 3 suspensions now.

    First suspension, I believe is invalid, because I did not mod, hack, or cheat. I was just playing the game and then the next day I was suspended for two weeks.

    Second suspension, I believe it should be valid, because I was playing gtaV and did recent a lot money from another player. And yes I know that is unfair to other players and is cheating.

    Third suspension, I believe is invalid, because i joined a private match lobby on Black Ops 2 to trickshot with other players. When I was trickshoting my weapon change to a rpg. I shot the rpg and flew into the sky. Second later, I got disconnected from Xbox live. Try to sign in and it wouldn't work and it said I was banned from Xbox live 12/31/9999. I didn't know it was a modded lobby when I joined!

    The Enforcement team are there to ban and give reason for banning. I have not seen anyone being unbanned for any injustice happen to them.

  • NIN 360 XBOX commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Its okay for hackers to take down xbox live and steal lots of accounts and get away with it while I done nothing wrong and I am being punished for it. The enforcement team needs to go let real people deal with issues not robots with standard answers!

  • NIN 360 XBOX commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Someone hack my account by compromising my password then got my gamertag banned for life. MIcrosoft said they found no evidence of my account being compromised. I was banned for account theft well it is my account which was stolen. Enforcement team will not listen and xbox live support really understand and wants to help but the enforcement team do not care. Looks like I will need to get a PS4. I been with xbox live since day 1 with superb reputation and this is how I am treated as a liar and a thief thanks microsoft.

    @Kulltore You don't even know the circumstances of why I was banned, so I guess you can only assume I'm a bad person. My renewal was coming up so I purchased a year of xbox live gold online for $40 from a guy recommended by my friends. They bought xbox gold from this dude a couple times before without any issues. Well, needless to say the codes were stolen and I was hit with Marketplace theft (a permaban right away without warning) with no recourse from the Xbox Enforcement team. I guess I just have bad luck and got dinged. My two other friend's accounts are still up and running, but they're not buying from him anymore.

    Sure I'm not the only one assuming you tampered or cheated somehow. kudos to Microsoft for banning you if the shoe fits

  • XboxGuy40 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I think it better not to have enforcement team who ban 18 of my xbox live not a win win for microsoft.

  • Jackorov1 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This is wrong, why should you pay for an account back, which YOU have paid money on? You have bought in game content and possibly gametags for that account and it would be pathetic to charge you for it back. I say just timely suspensions instead of permanent.

    After reading your post it seems amazing that after 12 years with an Xbox I've never had my account banned or had to deal with this problem
