I have had this a few times on PS4 recently. They were either a bot or a person not even reading the messages though because they did not deviate from their script even when it made no sense given my messages. Crazy that there's some person out there coming up with these horrible scams

I think it is a bot, as it replied with the same answer to different people in group chat.

When the bots on msn used to chat me up wanting cc details id add them into a group chat together and they all start scamming each other. Was pretty funny.

That's a great idea! Going to try to find some of the boys I've blocked on PSN and put them all in a group together to see what happens.

Its really problematic on Xbox One too, they go into the "Looking For Group Pages" they'll like random clips of your gameplay to try entice you in, they steal pictures from google and put them as display pictures and then send the usual "Hey ;)"

 

At first I was having fun sending stupid sh*t back to them to see what response I would get, but they actually annoy the sh*t outta me now as every time I create a LFG post for Friday 13th, I get these scam chats.

Lol interestingly, you are the only person I've had notifications from for looking for group. Kind of interesting to see that that function is not really working out as they intended. I assume at least. Not like they seem to be doing anything about the scamming, so maybe they are in favour of it!

I'm so sorry XD I thought those are only sent to the LFG page from within the game I was playing/ to friends also playing the game. I thought it was kind of like 360's notification where it would tell friends playing the same game that a particular person has booted up a game or entered a lobby.

 

Geez to think of how many people I've probably pissed off posting these.

I think it goes to the "club". It really should detect who actually has the game. But I don't find it annoying, it can be interesting to know what people are playing, or at least trying to lol :)

Its seems people like joining our Friday 13th lobbies when I post over the actual hosts posts, honestly without the LFG feature nobody would be playing this game since public mode is still unstable and a cesspool of trolls, and keeping to the topic, that's why i get regular spam from these "sex bots"

Well, I misread the title of this post.

 

It is not "Beware of Playstation Scum" at all.

Got messaged by the bot this morning. Had some fun responding with stupid answers and seeing how it completely ignored them. Thanks for letting everyone know about it so I knew exactly what it was when it came up.

I gave them my credit card details and the name of my childhood town, I'm currently locked up in the boot of an old taxi(?) as we speak.

No idea where I'm going.

Haha, I've been getting two a week on my PlayStation Messenger app, hadn't had any until taking a trip overseas. I wondered if there was any regional location stuff related to it? That would explain why I went from one to two a week maybe.

Love the idea of group chatting both of them, then leaving them to talk at each other forever.

Ugh, I hate when people try to scam like this to get credit card details. Their webcam shows are gross and disgusting and amoral and they shouldn't do it.

 

... MY webcam shows are very tasteful, with scarves and candles and junk, so you should totally come and chat. No worries about credit cards either; I take PayPal.

 

Come give me chat sexy I will give you the best PLAYSTATION XBOX GAMING SEO THING SEXY experience of your life... It's sexy.
