Kevin Butler message on my PS3, adding $35 to my wallet funds?????

82 replies 19930 views Edited Apr 11, 2010

I received a message in my inbox from another user about stopping the spamming rumor about PSN users having to pay for playing online. It says if you forward the message to 35 other users, you1ll be awarded $37 in your PS3 wallet funds.  I just went to my players met list and kept sending it to other people. 

Anyway, nothing happened with my funds, so I am figuring it is just a scam.

Has anyone got any info regarding this????

Thanks, kes

Give me your astrological sign and 50$ and I'll give you your future.  Is it a deal?

First of all, that was an obvious spam letter. Second of all, if you were unsure, you should have come and asked here first, as opposed to sending it to all your friends, THEN asking. Now you're friends are annoyed, some may be confused and send it out to even more people, and the spam will continue.

 

Come on people, it's really common sense.

I`ve gotten this as well.

GUESS WHAT IT`S A CHAIN LETTER.

Guess what happens when I do or don`t send on a chain letter. Absolutely nothing.

Anybody who actually takes these seriously is (no offense) a complete moron.

I'm glad I haven't played an online game since January. It's not a scam, just stupidity.
