I'm sure a person could sue, but would a judge even bother with this case? I mean $45 and I still don't know how him missing $45 from his account affected his enjoyment...I don't know, i think in this situation, a person is just best of pressing charges and being done with it.
you can actually bring a "trespass to chattels" claim in civil court. Essentially, it means that they prevented you from enjoying your property as you wanted. You can bring a civil suit alongside a criminal suit; however, the city, state, or feds would have to bring the criminal action, which to be honest is highly unlikely. The civil damages are not just for the $$ spent from the wallet but also the cost of not being able to enjoy the property that is rightfully yours and the flustration in getting things resolved, along with the work power it cost sony to research, fix, and file a report on the issue. then there would most likely be punitive damages.
Not saying you would win, but there are prospectively more claims than that of the $7.

So after a month of being unable to post on the forums. I am allowed to come back and try to be a member of these forums again. No longer is SOOPERGOOMAN187, that is only my PSN id from now on. I had insulted and said many mean things to other people on these forums in the past few months and that reulted in my being banned. I deserved it because I was being a Jerk. I am sorry to those that I offended. Truly I am.
Now with that out of the way, I have reported every single post in this thread that was of a demeaning nature. I have come full circle on this. I got my money funded back into my ps store. I have recieved word that the perp was banned. As for any legal action. That will remain a mystery. I am not saying anythign more about that as it causes too much off topic bashing and arguments. I am here to help from now on and to share ideas that will help this community grow stronger and closer. wacky fonts and all.
