Permanent Ban?

I did some fast money youtube tutorial involving getting on Daytona and doing 2 laps that promised you 17 or so crates a few weeks back and one of the time I did it resulted in a crash that led to me finding my account had 999,999,999 credits. Upon logging on today to see that I was banned forever from online? I have the Gold Edition of this game as Forza is one of my favorite series. I acknowledge this being seen as some kind of exploit and I apologize for doing it at all. I never did/intended on using any form of cheats to win or be unfair etc, I am not like that. i don’t know how someone would even add such a ridiculous amount of credits to their account. Please take all the money away even the amount that I earned fairly if that’s what it takes. I have been having a rough time lately and Forza is one of the games that I turn to for some cheering up. You can look at my gamertag and see that I’ve played every single Forza Motorsport and Horizon title and have never had any ban or suspension issues or cheating issues in any xbox game ever for that matter.

Thank you for taking your time to read this and please message me back with anything that could be of help.

I don’t see why doing something to make money faster after essentially being lied to is worth a permanent ban. I wouldn’t have a need to use the Daytona track thing for money if we had the same VIP that was in the previous forzas. They even changed the description of the $80 and $100 versions.

I understand your logic and I’m not a fan of cheaters either, but I do think the punishment should fit the crime. I did not “cheat” I used current game mechanics to my advantage and received an amount of money that I don’t even need. It’s not like I was somehow cheating to win so I don’t understand. A proper response would be to take the money away, not ban a loyal customer from a game they paid 100 for.

Players may encounter an on-screen message indicating that “Your gamertag is temporarily banned from this feature” in multiplayer, Auction House, etc. The in-game Message Center will show the length of the ban and direct the user to Forzamotorsport.net. The purpose of the message is to remind players of the Code of Conduct and Terms of Use for both Forza and Xbox Live. A basic rule of thumb is an E for Everyone tone; common ban reasons include intentional wrecking in multiplayer lobbies and inappropriate designs (profanity, drugs, sexual themes including ‘Free Candy’ etc). Repeat offenses may result in a permanent ban.

Players who believe they have been unfairly banned can e-mail forzafb@microsoft.com for further investigation and review. Include your Xbox Live Gamertag and ban date. Discussion of bans and enforcement issues is not permitted on the forums.
