Haven't had an Xbox since about June, got rid of it to upgrade my PC. Brother gets a 360, wants me to get a 360 so we can co-op and online and whatnot, so I did thinking I'd just be able to re-download all my DLC and whatnot.

NOPE!

Long story short, the email associated with my gamertag WheresMalik is from my college days 3-4 years ago. Since I haven't been a student in years, nor have I accessed that email in years, they closed the email out. Because of this, I cannot log into that email to change my password.

Went to fill out their security questionnaire, it requires me to provide a BUNCH of info from the account that I no longer have access to. When using the SECURITY QUESTION option, it keeps telling me that it FAILED or some BS like that. My security question? First car I ever drove. I'VE ONLY EVER DRIVEN AND HAD ONE ****ING CAR SO I KNOW IT CAN'T BE THE WRONG ****ING ANSWER!

Then it asks for credit card information when I'm not even sure I've ever USED a credit card on Live and, since I can't get an exact handle on when OR IF I've last used the card on Live, I can't provide accurate expiration info or the last 4 digits of the card I would have or may have used.

To make matters even more complicated, I'M NOT EVEN SURE IF I'M USING THE RIGHT ****ING EMAIL ADDRESS SINCE I CAN'T FIND OUT THE EMAIL I HAD ASSOCIATED WITH MY GODDAMNED GAMERTAG!

THEY DON'T HAVE A SIMPLE ****ING OPTION OF LOGGING ON USING A GAMERTAG AND PASSWORD! I've only EVER used one password so IF I COULD JUST DO THAT, I'D BE ABLE TO LOG IN NO ****ING PROBLEM! Instead, they force you to use a goddamned email that could be any NUMBER of email accounts from Hotmail to Gmail to my old school email etc. ****ING RIDICULOUS!

If I can't find a way to get this sorted out by calling Support AGAIN tomorrow and talking with a supervisor, I'm taking this thing back. No way I'm going to let more than 1,000 ****ing dollars worth of DLC and games and a 32k gamer score just sit JUST out of reach and start all over.

Should of used a personal e-mail address not a college one, failing that, you should of changed your e-mail address when you left college.


All in all, it's your own fault, no-one elses.

Were you rude to them? How was your demeanor? Reason I am asking is because if you act like an ass to them they will not want to help them. Stay calm and respectful and they will be more wiling to help. I have learned this myself. Being an ass never helps. Being stern is another though.

Didnt they have security questions for you to answer?

You should have learned that "should of" makes no sense.
