My PSN got hijacked at the weekend. Sony allowed a fraudster to reassign the account to their email address. The fraudster then transferred funds by PayPal, and took the loot as FIFA tokens. PlayStation emailed me to tell me that the account had been reassigned, but their help lines were closed. They did reinstate the account at first, but when I reported the unauthorised transaction to PayPal (who were amazingly efficient) Sony banned me. Sony appear to now be holding my account to ransom, unless I pay the £120 that the fraudster took. I can't understand why Sony didn't prevent purchases for 24 hours or so after transferring the account, or delete my payment details before transferring, which would have prevented the fraud. If I ever get through to Sony I'll ask, but their lines have been experiencing unexpectedly high call volumes each time I have called. Hence my question, is there a spike in this type of fraud at the moment?
