PayPal Issue Reportedly Causing PSN Bans For Some Users

A number of PlayStation Network users are finding themselves banned today through no apparent fault of their own. This is reportedly due to an issue with PayPal.

According to a source speaking with Kotaku, PayPal initiated a chargeback on “thousands” of PSN accounts for an unknown reason. This causes these users to be treated by PSN as if they owe Sony money, which results in a temporary ban until the matter is resolved. Those who are affected will receive an email from Sony.

Neither company has yet to publicly comment on the situation, though we’ve reached out to Sony for a statement. A quick look at the PlayStation support Twitter accounts (for the US and UK) shows numerous users complaining about the ban, but it’s unclear at this point just how many people have been affected or how quickly the issue can be resolved. We’ll report back as we learn more.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
