Fistwell said:Oh we can do that? Put me down for the next 12-24 months!
Fistwell said:That's a clever phishing attempt! "Hey guys you've all won! Just pm me all your names address and CC information ok thanks!"
Indeed... after 13 years, never had a single problem with stuff like that, and this is a coincidence? When the bank operator herself told me about Sony contacting them? Seriously?test_account said:Although i do belive that money were taken from your account, are you sure that it was PSN related? Do you use that card anywhere else, like i ATM machines? If you do, maybe you used it in an ATM machine that had skimming equipment installed?
I do agree that it would quite a coincidence if this happened just now that PSN has been hacked, but i'm just wondering if it could be something else instead, and just be a coincidence.

Did they really tell you this though?Grampasso said:
Did Sony contact your bank about your creditcard specifically or did they contact your bank more as a general message to be on alert for possible CC fraud?Grampasso said:
Grampasso said:Ok, I guess this is important so please mods move it in the op if you must:
I just received an SMS about my credit card (the one linked to PSN) being blocked.
I phoned my bank service number and they confirmed me that it was indeed Sony Network fault because they've been receiving a lot of phone calls about cash flow not being authorized in the last 4 days. Today finally Sony admitted it's because the hacker managed to clone several credit cards (including mine).
The card now has been blocked and a new one has been emitted.
I think the at least 300-400 was related to the work he'll be missing.Jax said:also:
this original grampasso post = nothing about money being stolen from his account. Then of course, now its "(at least 300-400) ". I'm sorry but I do think this is FUD. and bullshit.

I had to come back home from the city where I work and probably will lose several work days (at least 300-400) for this reason, so FUCK YOU.
seriously guys?electroshockwave said:Comics like that have always seemed lazy. You may as well just say what happened in text format, maybe they could also explain the stem cell research part.
Solstice said:It's a reference to a previous Penny Arcade comic where they just threw it in for the hell of it.
EDIT: Here it is:
Haha now I remember, man you have a good memory.
this is penny arcade spoofing political cartoons. this is their idea of what a lazy political cartoonist would draw on the PSN topic.
every detail isn't meant to be taken literally. it's a joke.[/QUOTE]
No one knows how deep/sofisticated the hack actually was (besides the hackers, and possibly Sony too). You can say that Sony fucked up with not encrpyting the personal information on the PSN servers, i agree to that, but the rest we dont really know that much about.dirkdiggy said:I can't believe all the kissy-face comments on the playstation blog regarding all this.
