I have just about everything set to 'private' or 'friends only' on my PSN settings, yet I still receive random invites from accounts with obviously generated names and zero trophies. I never accept, and block them/report them, but I assume if I were to accept that it would lead to some kind of scam or webcam pron. Either way, I'd be left holding my D in my hand, feeling shame.

I never get these on XBL however, only PSN.

What gives? Do you guys and gals get these, or just me?

I’ve only had 2 random adds on PSN and I just ignored them. I also have everything set to private and friends only, and only have a couple friends on it anyways.

Probably because PSN actually has a community unlike XBL.

Yup. Rarely use the PS4, don't online game on it, still get weird shit.

"Soo was up there" a good few times.

One of them was funny though. Seems this dude tried to start a chat with everyone who has Conan in their user name lol.

I've had it happen and I am locked down too on private/friends only. It doesn't happen very often at all tho. I'm talking maybe once or twice within the last few years. The ones I got were some obvious scams you can spot a mile away. The profile pic of some random "enticing gamer girl" with a random message like "hi how are you?" or "hey there how's it going?" I just delete and move on like its junk mail. I don't get those on XBL either....most of my random invites are from my sons friends thinking I a him...as he uses my account sometimes.

Yes. lol. My wife was using the PS4 Pro for Netflix and she's texting me "who are these people messaging you? You pig!" That was 2 years ago or so. I haven't had any since.

I think he is referring to the spam accounts that try to get you to give them money or PSN wallet funds.

These accounts are usually disguised as women.

Its a well known issue that hasnt been fixed or even addressed.

You can report the accounts and they are banned but obviously not fast enough

I don't know about you all, but since the first week of me getting the ps5 i've been getting a bunch of messages that begin with a "hey baby" that quickly follow with "do you want to see my X things". What the ****. Also getting some basement dwellers trying to sell me CoD Warzone hacks when i have never even installed the game on any of my systems. I don't want to see you melons and i don't want your hacks, go away.

Only time got a PS4 mail was from some guy on a Chun Li alt who went on a rant about how he reached Silver "genuinely" and Fang was cheating.

Almost justified paying a fee to play online.

I have not had my PS4 long enough for that to happen but I have to say it happened a few times on Steam.

I'm not sure, if I get a friend request from a name I don't know I instantly delete it. I haven't gotten any random ones for awhile though.

These are the kind I've been getting lately. Accounts with no trophies and no message. Just a request.

I have gotten messages pretending to be flirty chicks, which I assume lead to a webcam site eventually, but I haven't got that kind in quite a while.

Don't have PSN. But I've gotten several randos sending me friend requests on EGS. And I never use EGS. Just throw it on the huge pile of things that make EGS fucking crap, I guess.

All the time. I guess it’s because I don’t care and have all my settings on public. I should have been reporting them instead of just deleting the messages. Sorry guys...

I rarely played my PS4 but I got lots of messages from strangers saying they knew how to get free wallet funds... obvious scam, and if not food way to get my PSN account banned.

Not too often, but a couple of times. Can't remember if it's happened to me on XBL. I just ignore/delete.

Cam girls send things all the time on PSN... well, at least they used to. I haven't gotten any in awhile. I joke block the users and delete the posts.

I do remember one time my wife saw the message and I had to explain how I didn't know what it was.. lol. They sent them to my kids playstation as well and my kids actually responded back... I told them to never do it again and they haven't received any for quite some time either.

I've also gotten chain message "Free $50 giftcards and PSN cards" but that's been quite some time as well. I haven't gotten any of these types of messages on the PS5 yet.
