I've only just recently heard about people hacking accounts. Sad that you need a video game so bad that you need to hack someones account to get it. They're just video games...
Heh, just changed my pass., I'm glad they caught the guy, and I'm glad you got your money back.
Happens all the time, be smart about your account, update your pw frequently. Always stay one step ahead of the hackers. Glad to hear you got your money back. Seems silly to press charges though, let it go, it was only a game he bought, he could of done a lot worse
Enjoying his vacation
Hi everyone as you may or may not know, recently and in the past few months some people who enjoy the Playstation Experience had a bit of trouble to deal with. I am talking about the latest announcement about possible hacking happening to account. Well folks not only was it possible but IT happened to me. My experience happened this past Christmas Season. On December 19, 2007. I had gone out shopping for gifts only to come home and find my PS3 Logged out. (it's always on). So I decided to jump onto Warhawk as the days crowdedness was driving me nuts. I was on for about five minutes when I got booted. I logged back in only to have it happen again. I noticed this time that the info window said I had logged in from another PS3. I managed to log in successfully after a few more tries and went into my account settings and changed my password. When I was finally able to get into my XMB and see. I noticed fist that half my friends list had been deleted. So I checked the store. To my surprise I went to my wallet to remove my Credit card info( for auto pay) and noticed a new purchase. Someone had used my Credit Card to get a psone game with my money. Through my wallet but they downloaded to their PS3.
Well folks as of about 45 mines ago, I have been informed that this person has been CAUGHT and they are getting BANNED from ONLINE PLAY.
They have caught you. CAUGHT YOU. Your console's ID number is in their hands. You have made a huge mistake because as soon as they get your name and other info. I AM PRESSING CHARGES and am GOING TO SUE YOU AND TAKE YOUR MONEY from your wallet.(seems justified)
I hope this goes to show ANYONE else who may think it cool or funny to hack someone account, well it's not and you will be caught.
Sony are refunding my wallet and are keeping quite a close tabs on them. Mess up again and it's big time trouble in two countries.
Also I want to add, the money you stole was for me to buy a game on the PSN for my Nephew for Christmas. Instead I had nothing to get him. Thanks a lot man, thanks for ruining mine and his Christmas '07.
Atleast I have the satisfaction of now knowing that I will be happily playing my games online while you sit there and do NOTHING! Enjoy your game dude, I hope you play that Castlevania SON till your fingers bleed, it's the only thing besides offline lan games you can play, no demo's, no store, no remote play, no media server. I will be enjoying Broken Mirror and all other ONLINE PS3 games Safe and Sound.
BIG UPs TO SONY FOR HELPING ME OUT!!! BIG UPs INDEED!!
I'm glad the person got cuaght. But i dont understand how they could bannded him completly. sure they can banned his ip adress but a simple isp change and a new email adress and fake name can fix that. PSN needs to use something difrent then email adresses that can be searched down on the web.
