SPAMPSN, PSN prank & co. - websites that spam PSN users.
Estimated time to read: 2 minutes.
SPAMpsn and similar websites have now sent over 80.000.000 messages to PSN users.
Websites like SpamPSN are annoying. PSN users receive tons of messages. Up to 40 million PSN messages have been sent only via SpamPSN. Those who do not want to be annoyed by their friends should quickly change some of the privacy options.
E-mail mailboxes have become part of our everyday life. For every real e-mail that we receive, we get 3 additional spam emails.
Via the anonymized online service, spam messages can be sent to any PSN user. In the “basic” version, the service 25 can send messages to a PSN ID – the content can be written by the sender himself. Not so the sender’s name: The recipient receives the spam messages from a seemingly random name, such as Bertls-2_3493565448 or rundumw-23_221.
However, the user can see the web address in the message.
If you want to protect yourself from the spam messages, you can have your PSN ID registered for a one-off one-dollar fee in a blacklist offered by SpamPSN. For “legal reasons” the function is available.
How it works: protection against spam messages in PSN
However, the PSN offers effective protection against unwanted messages for free: In the privacy settings, you select who you want to receive messages from – from everyone, only from friends or none at all.
