Last month, the U.S. FB (FBI) contacted Sony to ask sony for information about a PS4 user who allegedly used the Sony PSN account to sell cocaine for “$34,000 per kilogram” (about $240,000). On October 22, the FBI filed a search warrant asking Sony to provide all the details of the account of the player Curtis Alexander, whose name is “Speedola20” on the PSN, according to themedia Motherboard.
The FBI also requires Sony to provide all records related to account identification, such as name, physical address, phone number, any passwords, security questions and answers related to the account, and technical information,such as the IP address used to register and log in to the account.
The FBI learned of Curtis Alexander’s alleged “deal” activity from an informant, who was later involved in a manhunt for Curtis Alexander. The operation involved the purchase of 100 grams of cocaine after communicating with suspects through voice chat and PSN’s information services.
There is no record of curtis Alexander playing a game with the informant, nor is there any record of whether Sony responded to the request, but the search warrant includes excerpts from text conversations that the FBI already has, such as, the informant: “With the game, I communicate with you in the game.” Suspect: “I’m playing a game that you’re not online. “
Sony has yet to comment.
