Yes I have had so has my son, It is spam and the person who sent it was reported and removed from our friends list.

Below is a Signature



Sony are stabbing their loyal family customers in the back - We have 3 PS3s and 3 PSPs all on the same IP address and all registered with Sony. Why can't we use them at the same time anymore?

I received one of these messages as well, it's spam, when this was sent to me, the terrible spelling gave it away as a spam message.., but on the bright side, the senders are claiming to be a Sony board executive, so we can grief report the senders for impersonating an SCE official. Smiley Happy

Are people really stupid enough to think for even a second that these messages may be genuine?

You would be surprised! It seems that common sense has gone out the window in the last 10 years.
