A question for moderators about being impersonated:

[ Edited ]
11 replies 212 views Edited Feb 1, 2013

Someone has created a PSN User ID nearly identical to mine (StardustChamplon) and is using it to besmirch my name in Peakvox Ninja.

 

I've avoided engaging this individual since the account was createed to cause trouble, but I'm curious if this is against the Terms of Service? I don't want to bother the Home staff with false reports.

 

Thank you.

Just send the Mods a PM next time, no need to make a thread about it.

Maybe you should PM the Mods for a faster more accurate answer.

Personally, I doubt just making the PSN Id is a violation. The behavior though may be. Hopefully they'll get reported and banned then the problem will go away. Here's a link to the complaint form if you want.

Nothing wrong with it.  There are so many screen names out there.  Your screen name isn't unique.  I'm pretty sure, it had nothing to do with you.  LOL

Oh, my apologies. When I've messaged them in the past, they have not responded.

 

Which moderator should I contact?

Since this is a Home issue start with them. Click a name to see if they are on line. Any will reply.

I understand the person in question is using a PSN Id close to yours, but by having it in your post, you are "technically" blacklisting.

 

I would edit your post to erase the ID.  Again, I know you said they are impersonating you, but you only have to mention they used your ID with a slight variation. 

 

Just trying to help on your post.  ne1 has given you some solid advice on how to tackle the actual issue.

Highly unlikely to be coincidental and/or Stardust that has been imported from Champlon, Belgium. I would just contact moderators if it's annoying you, but I imagine whoever it is will lose interest over time.
