Recieved Message From Kevin Butler?

[ Edited ]
9 replies 355 views Edited Aug 19, 2013

I got this message from someone saying that it was Kevin Butler the president of Sony Entertainment trying to stop a spamming rumor that psn costs money to join. It also said I will get $37 added to my wallet if I copy this message and send it to 35 other people. Did anyone else get something like this? It sounds like some kind of scam or some troll messing around. Can anyone confirm whether this is real or not? And should I report the person who sent it to me?

It's not real. It's chain mail. Just ignore it.

Reasons why that message is fake spam 

 

1. Kevin Butler is a fictional character played by actor Jerry Lambert.

 

2. Kevin Butler (Jerry Lambert) was fired from Sony last year.

 

3. Sony will never pay you to send messages to your friends.

 

4.Sony does not keep track of our messages.

 

5. The message says that it will stop spam by creating more spam.

 

6. PSN Terms of Service says: "You must not take any action that Sony considers to be disruptive to PSN, including, but not limited to, junk mails, Smiley MadspamSmiley Mad, excessive messages or Smiley Madchain lettersSmiley Mad. Breach of these Conditions may result in suspension or termination of your account and/or access to Sony Online Network."

 

7. Sony will never pay you to violate the PSN Terms of Service.

Well I reported the person who sent me this spam mail. But I find the rules confusing because I know that the mods on here let users break the rules all time. So I assume that psn is like that too.

I cant even put people like you on my friends that can even ask if this is real or not lol, nevermind the ones who send me this crap. Its an automatic friend delete for me, if i really like you i will give you a warning but after that do it at your own risk because i swear i got nukes aimed at you.

Even back a few months ago when sony did put a few bucks in all our wallets i waited until all my friends took the money. I dont trust nobody. Im still waiting for that to pop up.

Anyway the biggest red light should of been that keven butler is a character.

Why is this still an issue for people to comprehend? You do know that guy is an actor right?
