Ok so recently I was permanently banned from Xbox for no real reason at all.

I have a 10 year tenure on my account, with over $3,000 worth of games, and I just applied a 12 month on it.

The reason I was banned was they 'said' I was suspected of solicition, meaning that I was trying to sell my account. Now, mind you I had a unique gamertag by the name of 'Bay'; I would get messages every single day, to the point I had to turn off my notifications, about people wanting to buy my account and/or gamertag. I always messages them back told them I wasn't interested and I'm not selling my account. I tried explaining to enforcement team, however they said there is a clear intent to sell my account so they upheld the decision. I don't know what to do now, they took my money and everything. The enforcement team doesn't care what so ever, they go by what is suspected. I'm seeking legal advice because it's no way in hell that I'm going to let Xbox run off with my money and everything I worked hard for over the years. Yes, it's just a game but that isn't the point, most of my games were bough digitally so I no longer have access to them. What do you guys think? If I was trying to seek my account I wouldn't be so upset but I am.

Enforcement teams reply: [ Register or Signin to view external links. ]

This is complete and utter bullshit, literally been a fanboy of Xbox, but **** XBOX.

You're probably in denial about attempting to sell/trade your gamertag and you're trying to pass it off as Microsoft's fault. The Enforcement Team are obviously trained to handle cases like these, and they seem adamant that they have evidence of you negotiating your tag with somebody, whether it was done privately or publicly. Nothing you can really do about it, anyhow.

I've got a lot of consoles banned I know the feeling. Lost only about £200 worth of games so a lot less than you.

Hope you get it resolved

Nope never tried to sell my account nor gamertag, I get messages ever **** day about people wanting to buy it but I say it's not for sell or what ever. It's too many memories on my account to sell it. I'm not try on to pass shit off, if I was I wouldn't be seeking legal advice.

Post this on Reddit and Twitter and make sure to @ Major Nelson and P3. They are usually surprisingly helpful with these sorts of things. It is sad that the only way to get support when you are being wronged is by causing an uproar.

For all we know, you could have just bought the account/gamertag with the tenure and games on it from someone else and you're mad because Microsoft banned you shortly after the transaction. Not saying this is the case, but how are we to know?

Seeking legal advice would be okay, but I wouldn't bother attempting to go through court or suing Microsoft/Xbox, as it'd be a big expense for you, and inevitably you won't get your account back.

Still, your case seems odd. I don't think the Enforcement Team would jump the gun and suspend your account for no reason at all. You must have done something which was against the CoC/ToS.

oh well don't have to prove nothing to you. My ban reason was for solicition which means I was advertising to sell my account. I also got my gt on the reset btw. I hate kids like you who tries to decode shit.
