league invitations through the ps from people you don't know

I've been getting some messages with invites to custom leagues for MLB20. I never got these types of messages back in MLB17 and before. You had to know someone or go through the "looking for Players" menu tab on the game itself.
I don't trust these messages. I'm afraid some of these might be just trying to get my information.
What do you guys think? Am I paranoid or are they legit people trying to form leagues?

Probably legit..... All you need is your SSN , Birthday, Bank Routing Number and Account number to join. I'm in 10 leagues already!!! One invite was from this guy in Nigeria, he's a prince I think ?

But really I dunno? I'd say just delete them if you aren't sure

They're legit.

I've been getting those messages too, I just wonder how they got my PSN.

Not really worried about it though, they can't just "get" my information, my PSN is technically public knowledge I guess if they see it on this forum, but they can't access any other information.

Just spreading the word fam, that's all. Nothing creepy bout that

Nothing against spreading the word about a league, but I can't see myself searching for PSNs of people I don't know and have never had an interaction with, adding them, and sending them an invite. There's got to be a better, more efficient, less sleuthy way to do it.

If you got one from Mitch you should take it

I'm not RANDOMLY looking up peoples PSNs. Just sending messages to guys who are looking for Leagues on here, that all

Maybe I misunderstood

LOL don't be scared, its just commissioners trying to do early recruiting via TSN, Reddit, OS, etc. I know because ppl like myself are starting up LGs and have been sending LG invites to random people via PS4 as well.

If people post that they're looking for leagues, I get it. If people aren't making those posts and are still getting invites, I don't get it.
