After the shock announcement regarding Sony saying that every single PlayStation Network account may have been compromised, reports are starting to come in pointing towards the fact that PSN users are having hundreds of dollars stolen from their account this past weekend.
One PlayStation Network user, Josh Webb, emailed us after seeing the news regarding a user having $600 taken from him, stating:
A total of $300 was taken from my debit card on Saturday. However, my bank called me to notify me of a suspicious transaction and they confirmed it was indeed a fraudulent withdrawal. I’ve had to cancel my card and order a new one which the bank will transfer my previous account’s money into. The thing isI worry that many users who linked their bank accounts with their PSN account are in serious danger; I hope they all call their banks to immediately take action and prevent any fraudulent withdrawals.
Here’s the email in picture form where Josh requested us to report on so others were notified and took action:

Of course, there’s the story which many believed to be fake that VGN365 reported recently; a PSN user had $600 taken from their account. In the same story, Mike said he was also a victim of fraud:
I had $200 taken out my debit card as well. This occurred in Florida and I live in MN. Luckily my bank’s fraud dept caught it right away and I have since cancelled my card. This just sucks.

Sony had today announced via the PlayStation Blog that every single person’s PSN credit card details may have been and is at risk of being compromised.
VGN365 requests every PSN user that reads this story to take action regarding their bank details. We wish you all – including Josh – the best; good luck.
