PlayStation 5 scam you need to be aware of
PLAYSTATION fans may be desperate to get hold of a PS5, but some things are too good to be true.
Some PlayStation fans have received emails claiming to be from Sony, complete with offers to receive a free PS5 console as part of a fake beta program.
The email starts by telling recipients that they’ve been chosen to become a beta tester for the PS5 – despite the fact it launched in November 2020.
The email then continues to state: “Your email was previously used to log in to the Playstation Network (we didn’t check when, where or what, it was a pure random selection) – since we still don’t have any real user feedback on the new Playstation, we randomly selected 150 people around the world, and you are one of the lucky ones
“To accept the invitation to the beta program and receive the PS5, we kindly ask you to click here and answer a few questions.
“When you’re done, you’ll immediately see if you’ve been granted access and can continue by entering your shipping address.
“Please note, this is the last time we will contact you about access and the invitation link above will remain active for the next 24 hours.”
Needless to say, you shouldn’t click the link, enter any personal details, or download the PDF attachment.
