Re: What do you do about begging on Home?

May 31, 2013

Anyone sends me a friend request asking for help? Alright, I'm willing to help them, just as I did last night for 3 people on home.

Anyone sends me a friend request asking for money or stuff? I just say NO and walk away.

Anyone becomes my friend but ends up being a mooch? I let them know why I am deleting them. 

Simple logic to me. Smiley Happy

Can you add me? I need some free stuff. If you want to, you can send me a PSN card. If that's ok with you. Thanks

I always find beggars at the Lockwood Gift Shop. I started going there to use the machine after the one in my personal space started acting up. My friends know I gift all the time (its a compulsion I'm getting help for Smiley Tongue) but those guys are so repulsive, I don't see how anyone actually gets them stuff. Still, it looks like people do because they are always decked out in gift machine items.

I get VERY strange PSN messages from people who were once on my friend's list (i.e. chain message suicide message because they can't find a GF on Home).

People begging for PSN cards are benign, and I will remove them.

I also had to change my friend request settings because I constantly got harassed and asked to cam up with people because I was blacklisted by someone who lost privileges to post on here. Lol.

Just do the same, if people are adding you for money.

As for being concerned about whether they will go off to someone else...really?

People soliciting PSN cards are not looking for friendly advice. They are looking to scam you. If you offer advice and they respond with the B word, that confirms it.

 

What I usually get are people who have a sob story about how miserable their life is, or a grandmother died, and having some money to spend in home will apparently help them. To them I offer to recommend a good therapist. Sometimes people are asking for an equal gift machine exchange. That is more reasonable, but there's not much I want in any of the gift machines, so I usually recommend they make an alt account to gift themselves.

 

But here's the thing, solicitation of money on PS Home is a TOS violation. You can report them.

I don't like beggers, they are irritating. I think it is ok to share ones birthday with others though. I also wish sony would give us a voucher for something free( just one little item, or outfit, what could it hurt) for a birthday gift. I give stuff personally once in a while because I feel like it, but I ignore beggers like a plague


Thanks Asuka424 for the Signature

Hmm... I'm not a big report person. But for some of the more aggresive ones, it might be worth considering.
