Sony tells hacked gamer to pay for crooks' abuse of PlayStation account

The story is a little confusing in the details. It does appear that the Credit Card company have accepted his claim that he didn't authorise the transaction and hence they have refunded the charge and pulled the money back from Sony. However, at one point the case is apparently 'under investigation' by Sony whereas at another point it is claimed that Sony acknowledges that the purchase was fraudulent. Definitely a little piscine odour in either the original story or the reporting of it.
