    The last few days I've had some weird e-mails from PSN saying money has been added to my wallet, but I haven't added anything myself. Also, I checked my recent purchases, and it only lists the stuff I know I've downloaded, but is that system specific?

    The reason I ask is my e-mail account was hacked last week by one of those damned spam bots and I'm worried the person responsible may have been able to get my PSN info as well.

    I'd change your password and any other relevant details straight away. The last thing you want is for anything to go wrong.

    Agreed. Since your email got hacked, the ones you are getting in from PSN may be fake, but I wouldn't take the chance. Change all your passwords not just on your email and PSN, but anything else you use that could involve money (i.e. PayPal, eBay, etc.).

    Yeah, changed all the passwords already. Everything seems okay now.
