However, it seems that some people want to take advantage of this excitement by running a cheap scam to fool people into revealing their PSN account details.

A program calling itself the “Home Beta Injector” was recently sighted, which supposedly generates a redemption code for Home beta by entering your PSN e-mail address and password. Kids, let this be a lesson for everyone. The PlayStation Home team would never ask for your password. Doing so would definitely put your account, personal information and credit card details at risk.

If you happen to have given away your account information, please make sure to contact PlayStation support to try and solve this problem. SCEA Legal is currently trying to address this scam to prevent it from spreading any further.
