I know this is most likely complete BS, but I just got a message from a random person claiming they're Vanessa Greenwood from SCE (no clue who that is), and that she is giving me a code to type into my account that will add $120 to my PSN account (and I have the actual code), and that she shouldn't be telling me this.
Now my question is, what would happen if I were to type this into my PSN account? Would it do nothing, or somehow hijack my PSN account? I'm curious.
I didn't even know $120 cards existed. Now if it's real, then when you attempt to redeem it, it will say successful bla bla and you'll have the funds added into your account. And if it's fake, it just won't redeem. No hijacking/hacking, no exploding PS3, so whichever one you choose you'll most likely end up with the same PSN $ you had before. These have been going around a lot lately.
Its a SCAM.
ANY message you receive through your PS3 about any sort of "free PSN money" is a scam used to try and phish for your personal information to have access to.
Who ever this Vanessa Greenwood is, if she was actually giving you $120 PSN card code, you wouldve gotten an email from her.
Besides..... PSN cards come in $10 $20 and $50 denominations.
So at a MINIMUM you would be getting at least 3 different PSN Card codes if it were true, not one code.
And even Sony does not generate PSN Card codes of such a high dollar amount.
it's sad that these bs spam mails keep circulating on the psn. whenever i receive one, i just delete it instantly and keep going about my business. and if a friend forward me spam, i just respond to them saying it's just that and to stop supporting these types of messages.
