    Why are bots following me and can I get banned ?


    Hi, today I was watching something on YouTube and all of a sudden 4 random accounts started following me. I thought it was odd but I didn’t think much of it until a few minutes later I was getting spammed by hundreds of accounts adding me as their friends. They all have 0 gamer score and only follow a few people. I’ve heard that people were getting banned for that type of stuff and I don’t want that to happen to my account since I didn’t do anything wrong.

    :)

    Yes, but you don't have to do them in one day. You can take your time reporting them. Just bear in mind, there will always be bot accounts. Whenever one follows you, just report and block it as usual.

    If you have done nothing wrong, then you will not get suspended or banned. As for the spambot accounts. Just report and block them using the report and block features on the Xbox. The enforcement team will get the reports and take the relevant action on them.

    Does that mean I have to go through 200+ bots and report and block all to never have to deal with this again ?

    I guess not getting banned comes with 200+ blocked and reported accounts XD
