Message is from ViliusLTU and says

 

Dear PSN users,this is board executive Marlon Young. Due to all spamming, we at psn are giving out another welcome back package that includes all call of duty games, including Black ops, plus a free year of playstation plus. Send this to all of your friends, then go to store and check your download list. Not only Black ops, but $120 will be in your account.

Something is fishy about these spam things, be mindful before you report someone and get them in trouble for something they didn't do.

 

I got the same exact mail from 6 different people and I mean EXACT and 3 of them I know personally and not to mention I get a mail from someone saying stop spamming me... I haven't played in 2 weeks, and yes I change my pass often...

 

So Sony gots some splaning to do, maybe that past error was not completely resolved and someone is being subtle about it?


I think best is to ignor it and if you decide to report, report the post not the poster.. my openion thats all.

I did get the same msg., but I need some help understanding why these msgs are being sent lest alone aloud to out to other users. I get enough spam in my email I don't want it here as well, this is my escape from everthing else. I love to get free stuff, but don't lie to me about it. It's like smelling a steak cooking, and there is nothing there. I'm sure there are plenty of others that feel same way I do. Sony I have been a loyal fan of all your products since ps1. I'm seriously thinking about not spending anymore capital with playstation store if this foolishness can not come to an end.

Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

1. Sony wont EVER send PSN chain messages out offering free credit or welcome back packages etc.

 

2. And if they did don't you think their capitalisation or grammar would be a little bit better (spelling psn or ps plus without caps, come on!) ???

 

3. They would also use the correct currency for the correct region no? What flipping good are dollars here in the UK/EU???

 

I seriously don't understand anyone gullible enough to even consider these messages as real :Shame:

 

Block and report the swines!

As stated, it's a big no no! You could end up having your console banned thus turning it into an expensive doorstop.

Yes I got the same message also, it is most certanly spam. It sounds to me like someone is trying to run a hacker code to steal your downloads and put playstation down again.

Find the message, hover over it, press triangle, scroll down all the way to the bottom to 'Grief Report'.

Hi guys,

 

If you do receive spam messages such as the one in the original post, it is best to report the message to us via the grief report option on the message.

 

As this can be widely distributed by others and not necessarily the person who created it, it can be difficult to trace, however it will help us to look into it.

 

Thanks,

 

Rabid
