Travesty. Makes me want to abandon Microsoft

I sent a mass message to people on my FL and to recent players that said, "Hey would it be possible for me to get some GTA money fromnyou by chance on the 360? I'm trying
to get the $8 million achievement so I can transfer my character to the X1 before tomorrow. Thanks!"
And actually I was never even told that's what it was. I was given 0 actually info other than being told I "cheated" when I went to file my appeal. Then I received an
Email telling me that'd made a decision so I had to get back on their site. Short form it said, "I violated the ToS and they're upholding my appeal."
If they would actually look into they could see that it was never anything more than a message. I didn't cheat. I didn't mod. Instead I spent $20 on a shark card for GTA
to get the $1.25 million in game I need. They can see that on my account. I had a 500 character limit when filing an appeal. No follow up. No emails. No phone call.
Nothing. Filing an appeal wasn't anything like being able to call Lives Support as its somethin completely different. It was a pain in the ass & the website was broken.
I was given a 7983 YEAR ban.. No temp ban. No warning. No communication of any kind.. goin based off the average life expectancy of a man (76), I got 105 life sentences.
This isn't it for me.. Phil Spencer is going to know exactly how I feel about that this. I can't even put into words how I feel right now. I'm taking a couple days to
gather myself and to try and not think about it. I haven't actually slept in a few days as I feel like a part of me has died inside.. I lost my gamer identity..
Fucking lame dude! I feel for ya, Placer cant die!
Time to join the PC master race? I suppose one could consider it a blessing to be free of the achievement hunting curse?
Well I'm not done fighting this yet but assuming it still holds up by thebtine I am, I'm not sure what I'll be doing.. I think you can safely assume who won't be getting
anymore of my money from that point on. I would likely start with PS4 since that'll be the smartest option for being able to play with my kids. Ultimately I would love to
build a PC either way for a variety of reasons. I have had thoughts of how this could be my liberation from achievements lok. It brings VERY mixed emotions with it though
Be on the lookout for a blog post(s) from me going into much greater detail on the matter. PLEASE play a game of Gears 4 for me and make it extra gnasty!!
Wow so,when did you hear it was denied??
I was banned on 3/7 and filed my appeal the same day. I got denial of my appeal on 3/8. No way of doing a 2nd appeal or contacting the Enforcement team any other way
so they just kinda read your appeal and said nah...?
Yeah my appeal was limited to 500 characters, so a paragraph. That wasn't even even room to bitch about not having enough room to bitch.
They claim they investigated it thoroughly but I call BS. I anticipated being able to communicate with them in some form after the initial appeal but nope them to threw
Away my 10 years and rescinded the rights to all of my digital content.. so on top of my identity and my save files, I lost like $3000 in content
I contacted Support knowing they likely couldn't help me at all but I was hoping to get an email or phone number to call.. I spent like 40 minutes explaining my story
to the dude of which it took probably 15 seconds to butn through those 500 characters.. I was told to file a 2nd appeal. Well you know that'd be great and all... but you
can't do that.. his next and only other solution was to post in the Xbox forums in hopes they might see it and respond to it in some form.. I haven't done it yet as I
feel like it'll just be a waste of my time. I mean what do they care? There's probably another 40+ million people like me so I'm nothing but a disposable customer
wow so you never found out the exact reason? you should at least hunt for that..
They never quoted or referenced anything as to what exactly I did that could be labeled "cheating". In response to my appeal they sent me part of the Terms of Service
and said they feel my ban is justified. Ok so rather then let me actually talk to anybody and explain anything your just going to let me assume my ban was for the msg
I sent. But hey it's cool. Just leave me partially in the dark and have my profile along with all the content tied to it. I understand. I won't be unhappy at all. I'll
happily go start another account after I just renewed Live a week before my ban. It's really no big deal...
how did they contact you then? in what platform if they never emailed you
I got an email telling me to click on my appeal to see the final decision that had been made. So when I got to their website I can click to view my enforcement
history but then there's nothing after that. There's a "contact us" on the bottom of the page but that takes me to Microsoft's website so it's like "wtf?" I was under
the understanding there would be communication between both parties more than just the one time. The email I got says in bold letters not to reply to it as
they don't monitor it. Thinking of all the people who were perma banned a few years who never got there accounts back it made me feel efforts were pointless.
could you link me to the site they sent you too?
How the hell did you cheat?? On what game?
Remember that message you got on Live? There's what's likely referred to as me "cheating". Nothing ever came out of it either, other than me dropping $20 on in game money

well done! sorry to hear. I hope it gets resolved quickly
When I was filing my appeal it said "cheating" under the description. I've received no emails with any information like the pop up says I should've.
You likely won't see this but your movin on up!
