Someone keeps sending me a friend request!

9 replies 214 views Edited Feb 25, 2013

One guy keeps sending me a friend request under bad name. I didn't add him but he keeps sending me a friend request. What should I do? He keeps creating different names and sending the request. Thanks for any help. Also, his name is middle eastern as he uses those ugly names.

Change the privacy settings on your account so you can only recieve friend requests from friends of friends. That should stop him.

I was worried that its a big problem so Sony won't do anything about it. So, if he sends another request, should I report him? Even his profile is zero earned trophies.

if they detect enough bans from the same ip they may perform a mac ban and brick his system. if he stays persistant just keep reporting

No probs. If that doesn't work (for some odd reason) just set it to No one. Then wait like a month to change those settings back, because at that point he should have long quitted.

It seems ok now, and it has been passed 10 minutes. I have changed my privacy so he won't send another one. Thanks for your help.

There is one other solution.  On the next friend request attempt write down the users name then add them to your block list.  That also works.
