I’ve been dealing with a thing where someone gained access to my PSN account and charged my card for $500 worth of PSN things. I’ve spent the past three months trying to get the money back from Sony, with results that are both sad and hilarious. I made a write-up of the issue here.
It’ll be an enjoyable read, I promise you. And if you enjoy it and/or want to help me out, I encourage you to tweet @AskPlayStation while including a link to that post in your tweet (https://redd.it/3t78j6).
Read your post before I came here, heh. That’s a really nasty pickle. You will lose things tied to your account if they ban it right?
Without digging too deep it seems the only way to make a statement is to have your bank have the fraud charges made on those purchases. = DANG!
And that is why I never store my card info on online services. It’s worth entering the number every time I make a purchase on Steam to avoid this.
Definitely a good read. I hope everything works out for you.
That’s some horrible Scamkatsu you had to go through right there.
Hopefully everything will be resolved on your end.
Somebody hacked into my PSN account, and activated 2 PS3, i called Sony helpline, and they told me i have to wait 6 months before i can reset activation, so for 6 months, everything i bought for PSN on PS3, not work 🙁
Holy shit, that’s your post ? What fucking tough luck. Damn.
Congrats on getting your refund!
And awesome reddit formatting =)
That sucks, man.
Good formatting on that post, though. Reddit really lacks those shit.
This is why I recommend to everyone I know if they NEED a credit card number in the system, to go out and get one of those 50$ prepaid ones. You can usually put more money on them when you like, and if someone does steal/hack you they can’t get more than the 50$ that’s on the card.
Glad to hear you eventually got it all sorted out.
