Weird message on PS4

25 posts in this topic

Today I got a message from someone called myrl3esu5 saying "twõ wõrd qųòtéEvèrýthìng cóůnts òláëűsòůòàrtūròk" and I'll be honest, it scared me haha. I posted it on reddit and they just said it's a bot but it's weird to me why someone would make a bot just to send quotes. Did anyone else get messages like this?

Yes and I report them all.
 

Make messages friends only to avoid getting them from your non-robit (Futurama reference, not a typo) friends in the future.

I used to get messages like this all the time, until I blocked all incoming messages from non-friends.  It started when I started playing Rainbow Six Siege again earlier this year.  My guess is it's related because I 'meet' a lot of random people playing that game, and I don't play any other online games, and even while playing I'll get random friend requests and messages from people in that match.

Yeah, I think I'll block too if something like this keeps happening

We've been talking about this on the forums for a year now.  Just report them to PSN and delete.

Yeah i met one of those bots last week, i started writing random letters and "she" kept replying, asking me if i wanted to see pictures of her bewbs.

 

If you write "Hello my real name is Amanda, im 21/f and pretty bored searching 4 someone to talk too... how old are you?" it's a known one lol.

Sony really needs to do something about these spam bots. Start issuing out console bans. It's getting worse.

You can message from PCs for a couple years now, no consoles necessary. That’s part of the downside of Sony making that a thing.

I've never gotten these messages until a few months ago, and now, it's like once a week! xD

 

Always report them or they'll never get punished by Sony. Takes a while, but they'll eventually take them down.

I'm happy that I don't have too much spam, but 1 is botter is pretty active on me. Funny thing is that he want me too pay, but gave different reasons:

- "hey we have cheap games, please pay."

- "we are from sony, you have a suspicious account, pay up"

- "we hacked you and to unblock you need to pay"

And all needs to be paid to the same reference.

On work(mail) I always gets stalked by Steve Brown. Steve has worked in a span of 5 months at 5 different companies (domains). But Steve is still holding on to sell me that market analysis. Why Steve gets fired every month is beyond me, seems like he is putting some dedication in his work :awesome:

If you try to have a conversation with the bots that say something like “Hey I’m a lonely girl looking for friends hit me up”, they’ll send you nudes 😐

Don't worry, you'll eventually get more.

 

Like from girl1555836 (with different #s of course eevrytime) etc....with messages like they really like you and you should look at their profile for a surprise...

Yeah I forgot you can send messages on PC. Probably why spam bots are so common now.

I've only gotten two messages and both were from "cam girl" bots. I know their responses are set no matter what you reply but it was entertaining to watch them keep hitting on me after proclaiming, "I'm gay," or, "I'm waiting for marriage."

Stop giving OP false reassurances, guys. You know as well as I do that the PS4 in question is obviously haunted. Assuming they survive this ordeal, I hope OP will at least have learned never to buy a used PS4 from a yard sale at a house that's known to be abandoned for decades...

Mine said "Think different HusKyCode" with accented characters all over the place. It wasn't the usual spam bot stuff that is trying to lure you to visit some website.

Weird bot indeed, I guess someone was bored.

I turned off the option to let people search for my real name and I stopped getting bot messages completely

When I get "messages" like that, I just delete and block. Last time I reported an obvious spam/ad message, the only answer from Sony, which I couldn't reply to, was a warning about false reporting...
