If it doesn't have the psn logo in its avatar, then yes its pretty much spam.

If it doesnt make sense or is too good to be true, its spam or something worse. Block the user that sent it, or if its a buddy, educate them and instruct them not to send spam anymore.

Definitely spam.

 

Always avoid going along with anything that tells you to copy data or forward to your friends and you will recieve free items or what not.  It can be a good way for those who may not have the best of intentions to work their deeds of mischiff.

Welcome to the PlayStation Community Forum.

 

A request to forward anything to your friends will most likely never come from respectable source.  I would ignore it, or block the sender.  You haven't forwarded it already, have you?

 

I would say it is Spam.

Do not fall for these dumb PMs. With that said, know that official PMs are easily identified by the PSN logo.
