Identity Theft Protection Offer for PlayStation Network and Qriocity Customers

Patrick Seybold's Avatar + Posted by Patrick Seybold on May 25, 2011 // Sr. Director, Corporate Communications & Social Media

Starting today, PlayStation Network and Qriocity account holders in the United States can begin the enrollment process for the identity theft protection program by visiting http://us.playstation.com/news/consumeralerts/identity-theft-protection/. We are also notifying customers of the enrollment landing page via email, which you will receive in your inbox this week.

As previously announced, Sony Computer Entertainment and Sony Network Entertainment have made arrangements with Debix to offer the AllClear ID PLUS identity theft protection program to PlayStation Network and Qriocity customers who are concerned about identity theft following the criminal cyber attack on the network. AllClear ID PLUS is a premium identity protection service that uses advanced technology to deliver alerts to help protect you from identity theft. The service also provides identity theft insurance coverage and hands-on help from expert fraud investigators. Sony has arranged, at no charge to eligible PlayStation Network and Qriocity account holders, for twelve months of this service to be provided by Debix to those who choose to enroll.

In order to be eligible, account holders must be residents of the United States with active accounts as of April 20, 2011.

I can bet you all my money that either today or tomorrow they’ll announce the store is coming June 1st, which is stupid since we don’t want to know that information the same day, it’s like saying: “Today is Monday”. Useless.

@1302 So you expect Sony to update you daily… here is your daily update…

SONY IS WORKING ON IT…

Yes I am getting a little edgy myself that is why I am asking questions and not defecating on the provider of the service. It is easier to get answers when you ask a question… not by lighting a bag of poop on fire at their doorstep.

i can imagine that Sony is under a lot of pressure right now because of the money lost from the outage… they will restore and yes if you read my earlier posts I am a little impatient myself…

Someone did post something interesting, I cannot remember who or what number, but basically boils down to: Complaining isn’t going to make it happen any faster. .

Case in point I refer you to the case of “Lisa and Bart V. Homer” in which the defendant heretofore referred to as “Homer” in which the Prosecution: Bart and Lisa, constantly harassed Homer with a constant barrage of “Are we there yet?” on Homer. The ruling was, that it did not get the aforementioned people to the destination faster it only increased the amount of stress in the defendant.

Sony would like to thank you for your patience while we figure out how crappy we are at dealing with all this. We understand that the way we’ve handled all this really displays our gross incompetence when it comes down to our core and most important and critical aspects of our trade. I know it’s sad but what can we say. We don’t really care if you don’t have access to your stuff that you’ve paid us greatly for. We appreciate you money, so now that we have it you can go sit and spin consumer. I believe it was Bill Maher that said, “We all ready have your money, dude.”

(What all of Sony’s half assed updates really say to me.)

Well maybe if “Homer” ever bothered to say SOMETHING to “Bart and Lisa,” “Bart and Lisa” just might feel a little better. At least they wouldn’t feel left in the dark.

@1313 there are signs all over the place on a road trip telling you where you are and if they don’t take the time to read them that it their fault the highways don’t update you every mile… do they?

just got a tweet from sony, full services, INCLUDING STORE!!!! will be up and running this week!!!! #1318 i don’t think you will be able to since you you just bought it, pretty sure it’s just for the existing customers when this happened


1325

+ Zorvan on May 30th, 2011 at 10:50 pm said:

@1318

Doesn’t matter if you signed in or not. If your account was created before April 20th, you get the stuff. It goes solely by when the account was created. If you didn’t even have an account created though, you’re screwed on the gifts. However, you’d also have no worries about all of your info floating around in some hackers database due to Sony’s slacking, so you’d have the better deal anyway.

@1318 You could always call Sony and ask… couldn’t hurt…

@1316 No you wont, like anybody here, you’ll forget over time and go “Awesome $%^& !!! Ps4 is out !!!”
@ 1307 No matter how hard you’d try to tell these peeps to be patient, they’ll wine like 4 years old waiting for their ice cream. Matter of fact, the ratio of peeps that have the slightest idea of how hard it is for Sony to deal with this rapidly is too weak…

How come when I go to sign up my e-mail for Identify Protection, my web browser is not indicating this as a SECURED site!?!?! I would like to take advantage of your id protection offer, but am anxious to provide ANY more personal information to a website that may not be secure. Hmm…did anybody else check for security before putting in e-mail, did we not learn any lessons from this???

I guess once again canada gets screwed by sony didn’t think they were telling truth about us getting identity theft protection here


1338

+ Jawls101 on June 10th, 2011 at 7:56 pm said:

Its a start albeit, sort of redundant in my case. Already have identity protection but it probably wont hurt to try a different monitoring agency. Sadly the only problem with these is that it reacts to a violation, if you can get away with it ask for a credit freeze. Frankly an ambitious user could borrow money in your name, make financial transactions which run up the taxes causing the gov’t to come after you, sieze your assets claiming that youre the identity thief. $1M is a hefty start but it can disappear in a flash.

Oh cancelling your card only means charges are tacked on to your new card. Talk to your card holder establish a safe word so that you can lock down your account in case someone tries to spoof you can call in.

Networks is up though so might as well get the free game.

I have been waiting now for three weeks for my code. I have called Sony several times. Each time I call I have to wait 15 minutes to speak to a person. The Sony CS people are very nice people who can’t help at all…. I was just recently told that i should contact Debix… I did that.. still getting the run around. I use to be a serious Sony fanboy.. not so much now. What a let down…

I’ve tried to sign up numerous times without any success. I enter my email address and I’ve never gotten the promo code email.
I’ve called Sony and they tell me to call Debix. I’ve called Debix… they tell me it’s a Sony issue.
This was the only thing I wanted from the so called “Welcome Back Program” and it’s nothing more than a frustrating experience.
And yes… I’ve checked my span folder many times.
Thanks SONY
