[Answered] Email address already in use a Sign-In ID on PSN?
This seems odd to me. Somehow my email address was used to create a PSN ID and I did not do it.
I just purchased a PS3 from Amazon and when trying to setup an account with PSN I was informed that my email address had indeed already been used.
I have had this email address since 1998. And I had not created a PSN ID before.
I called customer service and they sort of gave me a run around saying that they could not release my email address back to me because of security reasons???
Has anyone else ran into this problem? I find it very odd that a PSN ID can be created by just inputting any email address regardless of whether it is yours or not. The customer service rep informed me that when you create a PSN ID you are NOT required to activate the account by clicking a link sent to that email.
For all of Sony's innovation, this loophole is unnecessary & just plain lazy on their part.
If anyone has had this problem, was it resolved or did you get the same run around as me?
