Most likely Social engineering. Origin needs to shove a bag of dicks in their mouths and stop giving out any info, ever.
Microsoft never acknowledged the fact that the leak was coming from EA/Origin. It was always a bit of a mystery, and I don't even have an Origin account. After I was hacked, I received an E-mail saying thanks for joining Origin/FIFA.
The only constant to the whole scenario was always D-bags hacking your account to buy a ton of FIFA packs with your points. I can guarantee you that the gamertag you saw was an accomplice to the scam. After purchasing the FIFA packs, they have to trade the good cards with someone else to get them off of your account IIRC.
Also, check your gamerscore, if it's the same scam as last year you should have FIFA13 showing as a recently played game, possibly with 10-15 points if the achievements are the same as last year's version.
