Solicitations from the Dark Side
As we were investigating an anonymous tip on a gamer, we accidentally sent a Friend Request to the gamer in question. Little did we know what would transpire from that mishap. Very soon after sending the Friend Request, the following Xbox Live messages were sent to us (Gamertag protected for possible interview; click pic for bigger version):
After he sent us a fourth message, we asked, “What’s your asking price?” He sent this message in response:
And after the fifth message, we informed him that we were from Xbox Cheater Watch, and that we would love to interview him – in which he could remain anonymous, of course. Unfortunately, we haven’t heard from him since.
So this is how one part of the seedy underground of cheating looks like. Now where’s the disinfectant?
Edit: Soon after this post was…posted, the gamer contacted us for an interview! We hope to have the interview up shortly. Stay tuned!
