PSN messages from strangers saying you will get $50 if you forward it!!!!

What is with this crap? Why does it exist? How did they get my PSN ID?

How is me forwarding a message going to magically get $50 put into my PSN wallet?

I can understand my ancient yahoo email addresses getting spammed with junk like this....but my PSN account?

They are scams, if you forward them you are indirectly funding a project to clone Hitler spliced with bear and scorpion DNA

Scammers get lists of emails, PSN ids, whatever. You might have just had your name copied out of some game's lobby at some point.
Why? Because **** you is why.
