It's been awhile since I posted on this board, although I've been lurking a bit more than normal. Still playing GT5 and the latest Forza is just phenomenal! A lot of similar attributes carried over with a LOT of new stuff!

Will just have to start mw3 all over again when I get it back and have to wait to activate elite so I wont get founder statute, but its worth not losing everything.
P.s. be glad it was 4000, they got me for 10,000!
I too was a victim. My account got compromised somehow, apparently I reused an old password for my account that was linked to XBL (not something I do, just fluke coincidence and I guess I got phished), and my card was attached to my XBL. One day i got home to play some rivals in Forza 4 and couldn't log on. After rebooting my system, trying to sign in, rebooting my router, all failing I just decided to call MS which they informed me my account was compromised. All 3000 MS points I had, gone. They charged up 4000 and 6000 MS points, so 10k total... gone. All 13000 points were used in FIFA12's Ultimate Team mode buying packs and cards. I do play FIFA but I did not even have a copy of the game yet and had achievements all for the UT stuff lol. Long story short, the initial call lady said I'd be able to access XBL, which I could. Next day I couldn't so I called back again. It went up to the unauthorized access team who blocked account and basically said up to 25 days or more while investigation was going on. I quickly filed a claim for my card and was refunded and eventually got back on XBL. When I finally got FIFA12, and had access to XBL, I went to see what the guy did with the Ultimate Team. It seemed he did buy packs and players and a lot of card slots were missing, I'm assuming EA/MS removed these cards from my account. An inconvenience for sure but I got 2 months out of it without calling back yet. I plan to call back and ask for more than 2 months of XBL
I no longer have any cards attached to my XBL nor my PSN. In both cases... I learned my lesson. I'll just buy the cards from now on and not go the lazy route.
