Hi
Just looked at a hotmail account i have that very rarely gets used. There is an email to me on there saying welcome to the playstation network. Someone has signed up to the network using my hotmail account. Should i be worried about this. Should i cancel my account. This is the first time i have looked at it in about 3 month and this email is from september. I am now worried as dont really understand the security implications. The account gives someones name and address.
Thanks in advance.

Maybe they've just made a typo? If you are worried then contact sony...

dont psn send a e-mail to you to verify the email address given?

there should nothing to worry about and there should be a link in the email that you can contact sony on to report it and they will suspend that users account until they contact them to make the changes.

Do you know the psn username? If so tell someone you know who has an account and ask them to contact him and change the email address.

I know his online ID as that is written in the message so could get someone to do that thanks. Just had a bit of a panic on that this might be some sort of hack or security problem for me but as its so old and i havent noticed anything untoward i tend to think it might be a typo. I have just emailed psn to let them know.
Thanks guys feel a bit better now. Panic over. (till next time)

Wow a blast from the past. You may want to start a new thread and ask. This is more than two years old.
