I’m a huge gamer. I have been my whole life. My life is training, reading depressing News on the Net and playing every game you can imagine, to escape. So You’ve probaly heard about the Playstation net hacking. I got defrauded on my ATM and the Name on the withdrawal is BLAH BLAH Playstation Network!!
This is extra lame because the night before the Hack job. I Donated A whole bunch of money on the PSN to the JAPAN Crisis. I grew-up with oldschool anime and japanese games. So I have been seriously stressed over the whole situation there. Then Sony gets attacked. I HATE all Corperations but I prefer Sony over Micro$oft.
That sucks man. This whole hack job is a pain in the ass. I have a PSN account but never used a card to buy anything so I should be safe. I just want to play some online games and they keep pushing back the timeline to get things back up and running. I’ve been gaming since pong but don’t have as much free time as I used to these days.
Take this as a lesson Predator, never use your ATM debit credit card for anything other than withdrawals on your ATM. If it gets jacked thats YOUR money in YOUR bank account they’re using. Will the carrier refund? ofcoarse, but until then (and god knows when) your account is empty. Always use non-debit credit cards for everything. That way if it gets jacked, the carrier has to worry bout it not you.
As an addendum/alternate to what Gerald Funke said: If you do use an ATM debit card, use two accounts and only put what you want to spend in the account linked to the card. I generally only keep enough for a cup of coffee and lunch on mine.
