I turned on my PS3 before and there was a message from a girl saying 'hey'... so I replied and she chats about being on holiday from California blah blah. Then she asks my age and says 'I know something we can do'... apparently she likes to do webcam shows - and directs me to a website where you need to sign up and supply your credit card details. So I googled it and it's a scam going around on PS3/PS4... I've never encountered anything like this on PlayStation before. So I blocked her.

It's also going around on Xbox One. I like to mess with them when they ask your age. Responding with something like 11 or 12 gets them to stop messaging you.

Yeah, this is what I do with the few Skype ones I encounter.

I get these quite often, and sometimes just get added to a random thread. If in doubt, check their profile - most likely they have zero actual gaming activity or trophies so it's not exactly someone you've played against in a previous match that is tracking you down.

Oh man I met an amateur cam girl on Kik ages ago, we chatted for days; I didn't know she was one until the pics and videos started coming into our chat. Haha..
