Microsoft has started to ban several users who have stolen Xbox LIVE Marketplace content.
“Please know that we are being very careful regarding these suspensions, and have clear evidence regarding each account issued a permanent suspension from the service. We apologize for any frustration or confusion resulting from our inability to share individual details, and thank you all for your cooperation in this matter.”
The bans are permanent ones that date to 12/31/9999 according to Eurogamer. Microsoft has been sending permanent suspension notices to some xbox LIVE members detailing the following reasons for a ban:
- Duplication of item purchase history
- Attempted Microsoft Points fraud
- Illegitimate acquisition of redemption codes
