Sony Playstation offering Identity Theft Protection? Legit?
Hi. I could use help figuring out what the theft of data from Sony Playstation means to me. I know I'm not alone in being upset that they're not being more forthcoming. I have never bought games or anything else from them. But I did register when I set up my Play Station 3. When the data theft was first announced, I went to see what data I had there - but of course the site is shut down. As far as I remember, I would only have given an email address and password. I wasn't intending to buy and download content. I don't think I gave credit card information. But I honestly don't remember what information they required. probably also address, phone, etc.
Now today with this second breach, I received an offer for free identity theft protection. But I don't know if this is legit - or a scam from the very folks who stole this data. Here's the beginning of what the email said:
AllClear ID powered by Debix
Identity Theft Protection Offer for PlayStationÃ¯Â¿Â½Network and QriocityÃ¯Â¿Â½ Customers
Sony Computer Entertainment and Sony Network Entertainment have made arrangements with Debix to offer AllClear ID PLUS to eligible PlayStationÃ¯Â¿Â½Network and Qriocity account holders in the United States who are concerned about identity theft.
They do have a link at the bottom to click and enter your email (same one as registered with Sony) to get the protection.
Any thoughts on this email offer?
