    Well simply I believe someone found out my password, changed it and put my account on their 360. I called the people at xbox and they didn't really help me, their system sucks basically and I can't use my gmail account because it supposedly isn't linked to my id even though it is my alternate account.

    Basically what can I do about a hacked account, I want to email kotaku/joystiq to see if they can help what are their emails?

    Thanks,
    ChrisN

    There's been a lot of that going around lately. No one's really made any headway in getting it resolved, unfortunately.

    Have you tried to do the forgot password trick to get your account back. Then just reimport your live account. Oh, if you have a CC attached to your live account I would seriously consider canceling it, or telling the CC company that someone stole your CC info.
