I am always getting these messages: If you send this to all your friends you will receive a code for x amount of $'s for a PSN card. I get this from friends and random people in home. I have been told by others that it is way for hackers to hack your id. Just wondering if it is really from Sony!!!
No, it's not from Sony, nore will Sony ever ask you for your password or any indentifiable info. I thought this would be common sense by now. >.<
BTW, these are the PlayStation Home Forums, please direct all PSN questions to the PSN forums.
As stated by NJShadow, it's spam. And some spams are a part of a scam. As such, never share your personal information. SCEA already has it.

If you wish to report a spammer, Protect the message as evidence by pressing the Triangle button as I do not know if the Network Moderators are able to read deleted messages. Keep it for a week or two. Use the following to submit a report:
And, this is the wrong forum for such discussions.
