PlayStation Network email

25 replies 1264 views Edited Apr 22, 2010

I just got an email from the PlayStation_Network regarding information about policy changes. Haven't opened it yet because I'm a bit paranoid with all the hacking going around. So I was wondering if anyone else got the same email and if it's safe to open?

I would guess it is not safe.

If in doubt, you can ignore the e-mail and consult the bona fide Terms of Service at the link at the bottom of the page.

I got this email too about "Information about policy changes" and a link to what looks like a fake Sony PSN website (playstation.innovyx.net) any ideas about this email?

Delete and forget. Unless it comes directly from Sony you can be sure it's a scam.

I did not get that email yet. But whenever I get a "questionable" email, I always open the email with my PS3. Because so far PS3 has been virus proof. Also did you go to that PSN Code scam site before you got that email? There might be a connection between the two things.

Here is the body of the email. It is a scam, they are trying to phish your login info.  One thing you can always do is never follow the links in a email if you're not sure about it. Type in the address or use a bookmark you normally use and look on the site that confirms the information in the email.  Don't follow any the links below! If you do, don't fill out any info.

It looks legit, but I don't know why they asked us to add them to our address book.

Its not a scam. On April 1st there will be a new tos that youll have to agree to when you sign in to the PSN. SNEA is a new division of Sony that will handle all there online services on all there products. Innovyx is a new partner of Sony that will handle all there e-mail services just like lithium and these forums. This was discussed at CES.
