An Important Announcement - Please Read

88 replies 145 views Edited Jul 14, 2009
Dear PlayStation Home Community Members:

As many of you are already aware, there are members of our community who are requesting your PSN identification and password to grant select items in Home.

We would like to remind you that the Home staff will never ask you for your password, or any other personal information in Home.  The members of the community doing so are participating in activities that violate our terms of service.  This is wrong, illegal, and most definitely NOT OK, and we will be handling these offenses accordingly.

Please be assured that we know who has done what.  We know that many of you who participated in this are also some of our most dedicated and enthusiastic Home users and might not have been fully aware of the ramifications of your actions.  That said, appropriate actions will be taken against individuals violating our terms of use.

Thanks for the heads up. Surprised that people are actually giving their info out at random though.

Don't you remember the closed beta?  People where always trying to get your PSN-ID, password and E-mail.  (E-mail password's are sometime's easy to guess) to get into the close beta it was big scam.  It also worked a lot...

     Thanks Cyd! Aways good to let the people know of such activities and that you have a handle on it as well as informing some who may not know not to NEVER give out such information to anyone on Home.

 

Happy Home Days to you all always!

Once someone asked if I would buy them something from theMall store. I said it couldn't done or something. I was told it could be gotten around and was asked if I has a PSN card, I said "No" and "Bye". Point being some either out of ignorance (not knowing) will ask for information or else those with larcency in their heart will lie cheat and steal whatever they can.
