"Microsoft Point Heaven" Scam

| | Comments (0)
We've heard reports of a couple of these websites currently doing the rounds - they call themselves "Microsoft Points Heaven", and usually sit on free hosting domains. They promise you "free" Microsoft points, then ask you to enter your Live login details. At that point, your data has been stolen.

If you check the code, you can see you're not "signing in to XBox Live" at all - you're entering your information into a standard submission form, which will send the information you enter directly to the site owner.

The last URL we saw this scam residing at was

microsoftpointheaven.weebly.com

which is now offline. It will no doubt resurface somewhere else, so be on your guard...
