lol well i guess it could have been worse After the sony incident it took me about 2 hours to change all my passwords, i never really want to have to go through that again.

I have bought stuff off of PSN contrary to what i said a few weeks ago but i now delete all my details after a purchase so that sony dont have hold of them. I looked into buying PSN cards but they dont seem very available over here in the uk. Some stores charge for the cards more then they are worth and since they dont send them by digital download its all very inconvenient.

I suppose its doubtful that sony will fall foul again anyway but somehow i still cant help feeling like ive betrayed my principles :P

Yeap i just delete them in account management after making a purchase. I actually really hope they dont use paypal, that would be much worse, i dont see the sense in being able to delete your details if sony still have access to them anyway. Ive never been happy tbh using my CC over the PS3, at least on the PC i can see the padlock and see that its a secure server, it all seems so casual on a console.

My Paypal account was used recently by someone who wasn't me. I thought it was odd since the password was a random bunch of letters and numbers that I thought I hadn't used for anything else but then realised I used it for my PSN account.

Got it sorted quick though, paypal support were actually really helpful.

Glad you got that sorted Chief thats really really worrying indeed. Nearly everything uses paypal so if that sort of info gets out it could be really nasty indeed. I feel a bit safer since taking out my identity protection. I get a report each month and its really really sensitive, apart from what i have for breakfast everything else is listed.

After the sony incident i changed all my passwords including paypal and steam which are to of the most important ones, i thought maybe i was being a bit paranoid seeing the problems some people have had i dont think i am now.

Gah, glad you found out now mate, probably the only reason i havent forgotten to change a password is that i have everything written down so its impossible for me to let one slip the net.

Question

Our phone rang twice yesterday, the first 0600 they hung up. The second 0700 I got it and it was a company in the US asking me about my travel in the States. I said we were not traveling in the States. The thanked me for my time and hung up.

Over so quick I didn't get enough details to follow up on it.

A little concerned that my info is being used overseas. We no longer have a CC so should not be an issue in that regards.
