Dear PSN users,

We are still feeling very sorry about PSN being down, because of this were not only giving away 2 free games, but we are giving $50 funds to your user if you send this to ALL your friends.

From Playstation IT WORKS! Send this message to ALL of our friends. Once you have sent this message to all of your friends - you will get $50 on your PSN.

 

This is a scam right? Smiley Happy

Its not an offical Sony message, which should have the PSN symbol next to the name.

 

there is no way for ANYONE to track mesages like that. it is spam.....

 

the same way that people are idiots if they "like or share" a picture on facebook that someone is going to win something. (hint, this is a classic bait and switch. they use your facebook account to sell your private information like your email to marketing companies which send you spam)

 

Sony hasNEVER given away free money. They can't afford to.

Yes, you are correct, that message is a total scam. No free money from that message. That message is just ONE of the MANY, scam PSN messages that promise free money. 

 

Congratulations, you have just received your first scam PSN message, Now you are one of us. Welcome to the Playstation Network.

Or....you could inform them it's a scam since it is most likely a person that doesn't know it's a scam. Not everyone deserves too be took out back and shot.

The people on my friends list are there because I want them to be there, they are as far as I know mostly older/adult players who would not send me this rubbish in the first place, however if anyone on my friends list does send me this kind of crap they are deleted without notice.

That's your choice but I, for example have younger cousins on my friends list who would maybe not know this. So...yeah, the whole world is not as black and white as you guys act like it should be.
