  • Feb 9 - Dumb: Stealing a Xbox 360; Dumber: Telling Microsoft

    Too bad they don't give achievements for being an idiot.
    By Mark Whiting, 02/08/2007
    Eurogamer's got a fun one today from the stupid crime files.

    So, there's this 14-year old kid in Mt. Victoria, New Zealand, right? Kid breaks into a house and steals someones Xbox 360 and all their games. Takes the games, disappears.

    Until he decides to personally call Microsoft and complain because the legitimate owner's already registered the 360 and now the thief can't get online to play all his stolen games. Oh, and he ordered a spare power cable to be delivered to his house 'cause... you know... he forgot to steal one.

    Turns out if you try this, the cops do show up at your house and take you away. The criminal mastermind has since confessed to the theft and will be charged for theft of about $700 dollars worth of someones property. Also, with being an idiot.

    Actually, there's an interesting privacy policy angle to this whole crime; it took the Wellington cops about two weeks of asking and a judge's order to pry the thief's personal information (including his address) out of Microsoft. Microsoft was fully aware that there was monkey business going on -- they just refuse as a matter of policy to hand over your digits without official documents.

    There's an article on the same story over at New Zealand's stuff.co.nz right, which kind of implies Microsoft may have somehow delayed the process by not ponying up the info right away -- the cops, on the other hand, are actually pretty chill on the whole affair. Detective Sergeant Martin Todd said, on record, that Microsoft was acting within its rights and had no legal obligation to help. "Microsoft haven't been obstructive in any way."

    "We genuinely would like to help as much as possible," said Microsoft New Zealand product manager Thomas Hunt. He also went on to say, however, that safeguarding privacy and safety of customer information was one of Microsoft's top priorities.

    Bottom line: You can run -- but you can't hide -- from that big green eye in the sky.
