I've got these messages a few times now and I block and report them.The last time I got this message I played along to see what they were up to.but it's obvious that many don't, and while that's bad PR for any company, it doesn't mean they can't be active in actually being a solution to the problem, instead of ignoring it or actively keeping others away from such things because they have to protect the children. A friend of mine kept on messaging and ended up on one of those cam sites where they asked for his card details.
As a adult myself, can take care of myself but children is different. Your network is all over the news, but the story isn't PSN is the place to play games this summer; Instead it's "An innocent game of Fifa has gone awry, Billy was working on his corner kick when he received messages from "Sally"" The Xbox One and PS4 have parental controls, hell I'm pretty positive the 360 had them too.
With the family controls it gets even more granular, setting hours they can play, who they can speak to etc etc.
So the "College Girl" started to cringe and get annoyed.
She change the subject so fast to private peep show and having fun.
This needs to get approved so the message to stay away from this scam gets out to gamers I got message too.
I wrote so cringy stuff because I knew that this is very sketchy.IMO, there should be a big ol' piece of paper in the box informing parents of what parental features exist, and a way for them to look up the reasons for such things.Parents are too trusting of their children, and often think their child is smart enough to recognize when they're being targeted, so basic precautionary measures should be adopted.They claim they will give you a private peep show for free but you have to go to a certain web site and enter your credit card info.Anyone who does this is clearly going to have some sort of credit card fraud happen so I would advise to stay far away from this.How can I trust that their intentions are true when you have these scammers out there ruining it for all of the honest lonely college girl who apparently can't find love. You also need to consider most of your average parents or grandparents buying these devices don't even know they connect to the internet.
