Xbox User Suing Microsoft Over Points System

by Tim Turi on Jan 26, 2010 at 07:43 AM

Just last week Microsoft’s Aaron Greenburg said that Microsoft Points were “never intended to mislead people.” Apparently one Xbox Live user doesn’t agree, and has filed a lawsuit with the company.

Samuel Lassoff, a resident of Horsham, PA, claims that he received a bill from Microsoft for games that he attempted to download over XBLA. InformationWeek reports that due to a “balky download system,” Lassoff’s MS Points were taken but his game was never received.

Lassoff’s lawsuit claims that Microsoft "engaged in a scheme to unjustly enrich itself through their fraudulent handling." He also points to “hundreds” of other Xbox users that have been wronged by Microsoft’s alleged breach of contract by paying for games they did not receive.

The complainant has a history of lawsuit-filing. Before Microsoft, Lassoff sued Google and an Atlantic City casino.

Anybody else ever have issues like this with MS Points?
