PlayStation 5 scam you should be aware of
PLAYSTATION fans may be desperate to get a PS5, but some things are too good to be true.
Some PlayStation fans have received emails claiming to be from Sony with offers to receive a free PS5 console under a bogus beta program.
The email begins by letting recipients know they’ve been chosen to become a beta tester for the PS5 – despite it launching in November 2020.
The email then continues to state: “Your email has already been used to log into the Playstation Network (we have not checked when, where or what, this was a purely random selection) – since we still don’t have a real user back on the new playstation, we’ve raffled 150 people around the world, and you’re one of the lucky ones
“To accept the beta program invitation and receive the PS5, please click here and answer a few questions.
“When you’re done, you’ll immediately see if you’ve been granted access and you can continue by entering your delivery address.
“Please note that this is the last time we will contact you regarding access and the invitation link above will remain active for the next 24 hours.”
Needless to say, you should not click on the link, enter personal information, or download the PDF attachment.
