My PSN card ripped

[ Edited ]
29 replies 3599 views Edited last month

Okay, so I bought myself a Playstation network card for 20$. As I scratch the code, I find that there's a missing number/letter and apparently it got ripped off when I made the purchase. I tried to bring it back to Wal-Mart for a refund, but despite having a receipt they wouldn't give me a new one. Did I just get ripped-off 20$ here? What should I do so I can use the money on the network?

What got ripped off from where, exactly?

If there was only one letter missing then you have only 36 possible numbers or letters to choose from. 0-9, a-z.  Get going.

The part where the code is at is smudged off for whatever reason. I can't pick out 3 numbers/letters. The part of the code I can pick out goes as follows: X2??-?9Bt-R4K4. Personally, I just want to contact Sony or something so that I can get a new code. I really don't like getting ripped-off out of 20$ from Wal-Mart.

You shouldn't have posted the code.. Now billions of people are going to jump on their PS3 and put in numbers and letters randomly to see if they can steal it now.

I'd like to know who'd actually waste their time trying to figure out the code for the card considering that the number of people who actually view this topic isn't very high and there's way too many possible combinations for most people to try and figure out. I doubt anyone actually will steal it, and even then the only solution to this problem is a new code it seems.

 

Goddamn, I'm still pissed I wasted 20$ because Wal-Mart gave me a **bleep** product and doesn't want to give me a new one...

ALright...

 

I work for WalMart Canada here in Montreal and after reading

your post the other day I checked this out during my lunch

hour today.

 

I went to the electronics dept and had a look at the PSN cards

and there's no way that anything could have gotten "ripped off"

because the card is plastic like a credit card and comes sold as

2 pieces that are attached. The only thing that is able to be re

-moved is the screening (film) over the code that you redeem

on the PSN. If the code is entered on the PSN before the card is

activated then it won't work. To activate the card the employee

runs the card through the card reader at the cash and then you

pay for the card. I talked to the manager of the electronics dept

and she informed me that the cards are the same in the US and

Canada.

 

Admit it...you simply rubbed the film too hard and removed the

numbers/letters underneath. What did you use to remove the film?

Your fingernail should be more than enough. Why should WalMart be

expected to pay for your inability to properly rub a screening on a

card? It's not their fault...it's yours. You didn't get "ripped off"...you

screwed yourself.

 

Next time, rub a little lighter.:smileywink:

I got it like that... But whatever. I'm not going to argue with you on "it's not possible."
