Someone that says they're going to have my gamertag banned and all that?

It sounds stupid I know but I did have it happen to me on PS3 before

If I was to get my profile banned what would I have to do to get it back?

Its not like im doing anything I shouldn't but me and some buddies pranked this group of friends and they were all threatening us to get us banned..

You can't get it banned unles you have done something against tos, people saying that are idiots don't pay them any attention.

If it does happen then I don't think you can ever get it back.

You should be good then, if you're skeptical make sure to take off your credit card and only add it back on when you need to purchase something unless your gold is on auto renew.

While it's good to take security seriously, it doesn't do to be paranoid.
There are no reported cases of anyone hacking into MS' servers to compromise an account directly. There are cases of people having their accounts hijacked or stolen, but that's nothing to do with MS's end and everything to do with the end user, either by having an easy to guess password or in unlucky circumstances having identical log-in information to another site which *did* get compromised, hense it's wise to use several different passwords.

The average dumb-ass threatening your account knows nothing.
Honestly, if you met someone online with the ability to do that, they wouldn't advertise it. They'd just do it. And if they *were* talented enough to do that, it's unlikely they'd waste their time with one single Live user.

what happens is if you voilate the code of conduct people might report you.
If they report you an enforcement person or xbox embassador will look into the game and the situation. If there is proof of you doing wrongfull stuff they will suspend or ban you.

If you cheat/mod/hack/yell and swear racisist stuff then you might be in trouble
if your doing nothing and didnt violate the code your in the good

dont give out your email or password or anything related to you
dont let anyone know your real name or your address etc..

dont give into free points and free dlc for licence transfer phishing kids cause they steal your account

If someone threatens to do anything to your account, especially in a text message that MS can see and verify came from them, turn them in, get them banned for making the threats.

You won't be banned without evidence. Usually, that means someone on the Policy and Enforcement Team witnessed you breaking the Terms of Service.

What was your prank? There are tons of examples on YouTube of people pranking/griefing other players so it's doubtful that any action will be taken against you.
