Hey there, 

 

They probably saw you in game? If you play online multiplayers, there is a way you can view recently met players. From there, they probably mass messaged a group of people.

 

Our advise is to report them for soliciting by opening their message and hitting triangle. From there, you can follow the instructions on how to submit a report to SCEA.

 

:smileyhappy:

 

Hope that helps!

They can see your username here too... and anywhere you put it online for public view.

Probably from sites where your PSN ID is in your signature or maybe when you play online games through PSN.
