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

Apr 12, 2010

The minute someone on my friends lists forwards me a chain letter, I delete them. I don't want gullible retarded teammates when I'm playing online.

Are you new to the internet? I pray that you have an email account with a good spam filter.

I've had this same mail sent by two different users. I've only just started online gaming, and I immediately checked my players met, when I got the msgs and they weren't on the list.  Unfortunately the list isn't that long.  I only have actual rl friends on my list so I don't know who these ppl are.  There should be a way for us to forward these spammer to Sony to report them.  Wether they know or not what they are doing is illegal and against PSN policy and should be banned off the Network.  But there is no way to report these ppl.  If there is please let me know.

hmmm it seems to me that kicking these people off the network would decimate it. But yeah, it does suck that randoms you play against can send you spam.

Do what I do: delete those who send the spamming messages from your list.

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


HAY FRIEND, you must be new to the intrawebz. Let me offer you a nickels worth of free advice.
Dont bother with anything from someone you dont know. Its a rather simple concept.
best of luck

 

 

Yo dawg I heard you liked quantum mechanics so I didn't do anything, and I did something at the same time.

I like a few of you have also deleted friends off my list because of these messages. I wont tolerate it because of what can happen with spam on the PC. Obviously you cant get a virus on the PS3 by opening the message but you never know about the future so lets just not get into the habit. It is also rather annoying. I once opened my mail box after a few days and found almost 40 of the same damn message. Every one of those clown got deleted and the friends I have now back up to around 80 are all aware of the situation.

 

We live in an age now where this kind of thing should be under better control. You cant use the excuse that you didnt know because well you should know. Computers are part of our everyday life at this point and not knowing the basics of PC's, networking and internet is inexcusable.

If I get spam from a friend, I'll reply back to them requesting don't chain mail, it's not true.

If they do it again, I'll just delete off my FL.
