PS3's 4th Bday msg for $50. How do I gain access to the funds or add them to my wallet?

5 replies 26769 views Edited Jul 4, 2012

I received the following message and did what it said. But when I entered the code, it said I had $50 but it wouldn't let me add it to my PSN wallet.

 

Has anyone else had trouble or know how to be able to access these funds? Thanks for any help!

 

MESSAGE RECEIVED: It is PS3's 4th Birthday and for all Sony and PSN users to celebrate, we are offering$50.00 on PS Store to everyone who spreads the news to all of their friends (including the one who sent this msg.) Once you do this, an alert will pop up on screen with a unique code to enter at Accts Management/Redeem Codes, but you have to send this msg to all your friends first. Code is i8ph-cibd-rk2h.

It's completely fake: a scam.  Someone decided to use a PSN card that was never actually scanned at the register, took the code, and made it a chain mail.  Sony would never actually just give out free money.

 

Delete and block the user who sent you this message and report them.

It's not even the PS3's fourth birthday.  The PS3 will be six years old in October.  Sony would probably know that.
