Microsoft is taking drastic action against gamers who have used JTAG modded consoles to bypass a security process that has allowed them to download the full game of Halo: Reach. Recently for selected reviewers only, Microsoft had put a build of the game on the Xbox LIVE Marketplace that was legitimately able to be downloaded with a 25 digit redeem code.
Notification of Permanent Suspension: Prerelease title play
This email is to notify you that your Xbox LIVE account privileges have been permanently suspended due to illegitimate prerelease title play.
During your suspension, you will not be able to log into Xbox LIVE. Your Xbox LIVE privileges will not be reinstated.
Customer Support is not able to modify or provide any further details about your suspension.
Microsoft expects that all customers abide by the Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct provides guidelines for appropriate behavior while using the service.
Note: if you are not a user of Xbox LIVE, this suspension may have been enacted due to your activity in the Zune Social.

LIVE Enforcement Team
Following the un-legit download of Halo: Reach, the title has since made it’s way on to bit torrent sites and is now circulating around for gamers who have had their drive’s firmware flashed. These gamers also will be banned as part of the prerelease title play enforcement action from Microsoft.
If you have Halo: Reach achievements right now on your gamercard without receiving the reviewers redeem code for a legit download, then expect a permanent suspension from Xbox LIVE soon!
