I just reecievd a "$50 PSN Code" message

47 replies 17345 views Edited Jul 19, 2010

I just got home and reccieved a message from "LittleBigPlaya_J" with no title and it said to message it to all your friends and then redeem the code, I tried the code and it said it had a value of $50, i tried adding them to see if it really worked and it said they couldnt be added, then I sent it to my 2 friends, told them to ignore the message because I was seeing if he was really capable of doing this and attached the message, then I tried it again just now and it dosen't work, big surpirse, but it still says it has a value of $50

 

Im contacting sony now, anyone else recceived a similar message?



Everything I need to know I learned from Tom Clancy

Yes, this is just one of the countless versions of spam messages that fly around PSN. Normally I just delete people who send these to me. I hate getting these stupid messages.

Luckily most people on my friends list are smart enough not to pass around this trash. Don't warn the people that you'll block and delete and watch them scratch their heads why they lost a precious friend.

I deleted someone this evening for sending me one of these spam messages, I obviously have a less intelligent friends list than Hosnor!

I've never tried any of them. I'm pretty sure that no one can trace how many people you send that spam message to anyway.

I mean at the same time it is very strange that the code says that it is worth $50, how is it possible that there is a code that does this?
