  1. My Account was Hacked and an Unauthorized Item Purchased from the Microsoft Store


    I have found out that there has been unauthorized access to my Account, which hopefully I have reset now.


    A purchase was made for an XBox game note I do not own an XBox.


    I would like to request a refund of the fraudulent payment £38.99 as this purchase was made by the hacker.

    :)

    Did someone hack my account microsoft account?

    Hi Tony,

    There's a possibility that there was an attempt to hack your account, however, as of now, we don't have a way to know and verify who did it. If you're using your for purchasing of apps and games in the Microsoft Store, we suggest checking if there was a
    change on your purchased items. We also recommend changing your password to a stronger one, and might as well turn on the two-step verification. Refer to this
    article on how to protect your Microsoft account.

    Let us know if you need anything else. We're here to help.
