Okay so I signed into my account and I got a message from someone saying he was some guy named Dominick from "IP_SERVICES" telling me someone tried to sign in my account numerous times and failed.. He said I needed to verify my sign-in info otherwise my account would be closed ... I recieved this message 6/29 and I just logged on today... Should I be concerned? Is this legit? It seems fake to me...

It is 100% fake. Sony would not send you a message like that asking for that information. The message is by some waste of humanity trying to get sign-in e-mails/passwords from people not quite as bright as yourself who think it's real and give away their information.

Good job in not falling for it. Smiley Happy

No problem. The PS3 likely froze because the account isn't a real account, and therefore the system locked up when the Sony PSN server couldn't verify it.
