sounds like a scam... why would they give you 50 dollars to send a chain message to other people? Nobody wants to give you anything for free do you realize this or are you one of those people that reply to these messages with your user id and password because there are people out there that fall for these.

That is a fake/spam/chain message. Ignore that message and DO NOT send it to your friends.

 

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.

 

Sony will never ask you to violate the PSN Terms of Service. Sony will never pay you to violate the PSN Terms of Service. Sony might BAN you if you violate the PSN Terms of Service, but Sony will never pay you for that.

You're getting this because one of your friends on your list sent it to you thinking they'll receive a $50 code by sending it to their friends.

 

These types of messages are fake. The best thing to do is to just ignore it.

Doesn't happen in just the internet. I had enough of these chain letters when text message came into the world.

It hasn't happened to me in at least a year. These messages are most obviously fake when the messenger types something that's hard to believe. I remember someone once told me to "send this to all your friends and Halo will be ported to PS3."
