    didn't they have a promotion where you spend a certain amount and then they give you 10 bucks back...

    you can tell when PSN sends you a message apart from an impostor.

    They don't have an avatar.
    Their name is centered.
    It's a different font. etc.

    I forgot exactly, but I got an invite for some game on PSN from them.
    The message basically linked me to a promotion to some FPS game in the PSN store



    EDIT:

    What did the message say, what was the sender's name, did you check you wallet balance?

    I never heard of anything about giving you 10 bucks for being an active member..
    but did you recently purchase a stuff on the psn store?
    ..i'm a bit too lazy to look for the promotion they had.

    But usually their messages have an attachment which links you to the store or something like that.

    next time, don't be so hesitant to delete stuff.
    if it was a chain letter, it would tell you to send it to people.

    always take a clear look at the name of the sender and click on their profile to find out what type of member they are.

    Hahaha. I got this message. Thing is, if you spent a certain amount in the Playstation Store over the month of October, they gave you an extra $10 in the store as thanks. I opened my message and received $10 on my account straight away. This one was legit. I understand people being wary of chain-mail and scams, but this one was definitely official. Try calling Sony and see if they can resend it...

    It was probably from the promotion they had during October. If you spent over $60 on the PSN store you would receive $10. I still haven't received my $10 yet, but I believe they said it would be sent out sometime between November 1-18 or something like that.

    I it's really from Sony you'll see the psn logo in the message
    Platbar by the infamous In2
    "If it looks good, you'll see it. If it sounds good, you'll hear it.
    If it's marketed right, you'll buy it, but...if it's real, YOU"LL FEEL IT"
