Problem with spam & reactions.

10 replies 118 views Edited Aug 23, 2012

Hello every one!, have any of you gotten a message from maybe a friend or some one you don't know? And it read something like

"Playstation network is giving away free redeem codes! All you have to do is copy this and send it to all you're friend and then a notice will pop up! Believe me this actually works!"

 

Or how about

"Playstation network is disabling account's to those users that have not been online for more then a month if you don't send this message to all your friends and show that your account is still active it will be deactivated."

 

This one is my favorite cause I know it's not real.

"PSN is giving away Call Of Duty map pack's free! And if you send this message to all your friends you will be hacked to 10th prestige on Modern Warfare 2 and you will be 15th on Black ops trust me this works!

 

Have any of you gotten those messages or something close to them?, If so what was your reaction to it and what did you do?

Yes, I've received one of those a long time ago. I deleted the message and continued my daily life normally.

The first time I recieved one I honestly thought it was legit. I tried it and to my surprise, it didn't work.

Later on I asked one of my more experienced friends about it. He told me it was fake of course. And from then on, I ignored messages such as those.

 

The end.

<3

If you didn't bother to use it, then how did you know it worked?

Last time I check it said I just won 1 million dollar lottery Smiley Happy Yet I didn't even know what a lottery is my whole life until recent;y/ The other time, it ask me to click on the red button, which take me to a site where there is this picture of an elephant with 4 legs, and they ask me how many legs it has, a correct answer give me an Iphone. Another time when I was surfing the web, another one pop up and ask me to sign up a one year contract of Car Insurance, in return, i get a 20$ Coupon to Starbuck. LOL
