Author Topic: A spin on the classic "guilty as fuck" tabloid consumer fraud story  (Read 1972 times)

Yes, this time it's not an old person with a spurious story!!!


Quote
A furious mother claims she was forced to chase Microsoft for 11 months after fraudsters hacked into her son's Xbox account and racked up a credit card bill.

Mum-of-three Lesley Urwin said crooks had used her credit card details saved to the Xbox to purchase three rounds of points each costing £79.99.

After reporting the issue to Microsoft 11 months ago, Lesley claims she was "sent in circles" in trying to secure a refund and was eventually told by the tech giant the fraud wasn't visible on her account.

The crook bought 36,000 Fifa gaming points – and she only found out when Microsoft emailed her to confirm the spurious purchase, the Sunday Mail reports.

Lesley, 49, said: “I’ve lost count of the times I’ve phoned and emailed Microsoft.

“The boys have had no Xbox Live for nearly a year as a result because I won’t let them log in.

“I am fed up fighting and I want to warn others. None of this is our fault.”

Surprises me that's from the Mirror as that's a classic Fail pic of two family members looking angry and sad.

Can you have a baby when you're 40? Genuinely interested. Does it raise the chances that the baby might come out auto-rewound or something?

Microsoft has now refunded the money. £239.97 is a lot of money and I'm glad they got it back.

I know. They should have refunded the cost of all the phone calls over that period as well. It doesn't inspire confidence in XBox live if that is how long they take to refund money taken by fraudsters.

I popped out when my mum was 44 and there's 8 years between me and my sister.  Safe to say I was an accident.

Pretty much "normal", but am a bit short and have a small cock.  It works, but I won't be appearing in any top-tier porn any time soon.

I respect owning a jersey from a Scottish second division team, though. Fair play.

Someone that dedicated would earn their fifa points “in-game” rather than pay for them. Case dismissed.

Constantly chasing hardware upgrades would have burnt that £239.99 each month.

Surely the boy should contain the spirit of Ron, not her.

At that angle, it certainly looks like he contains the *something* of Ron...

Fourth division! No wonder he bankrupted the family chasing TOTY Messi - needed a glimmer of something shiny and worthwhile in his life.
