Sony is protecting themselves from user fraud

It's clear that whomever made the charge had to know some specific details that the owner of the credit card would only know and also their Sony acct. data. That means the burden is on the credit card holder not Sony. Anyone could provide their personal information to a friend who could log-in and then have the credit card holder claim their credit card info. was stolen. There may be more to the story than what is being reported but from what is being reported it looks to me that Sony is being reasonable and protecting themselves from consumer fraud. It's important to read and understand the TOS before you sign up for online purchases. If the person's data was stolen by a hacker this is one more reason why hackers should be shot...
