I am with Jen here!! CLOSE/CANCEL/REMOVE my account and any information associated. I signed up for this BS because of an email from windows live about some merger. All they want to merge is into my back account! You have to buy credit to use the 2 FREE features??? WTF is that??? and then you give customers NO WAY OUT!!?? What a scam.
I logged in with my Microsoft account once in the process of getting started here. I did NOT link the accounts. I let it look for contacts once. I let skype check my facebook account for contacts once but again, I did NOT link the accounts. Here is the BULL S.. the only place my phone number is listed is in my windows live account emergency info. it is not published anywhere. My phone is included in a few private messages to friends on facebook but that was several years ago.
Tonight I scroll back through old messages to a dear friend and low and behold, I gave her my cell number in a message in September 2009. Now all the sudden it is a pretty skype blue with the logo as if it is a skype number. BULL!!
GET YOUR PAWS OFF MY PHONE NUMBER! Really? You tag my phone number from A THREE and ONE HALF year old message on facebook??? A number that is not yours, was not revealed to you, was not publicly posted on facebook. The only way Skype got my number was out of private information on my Microsoft account.
. I want all traces of skype removed from my life and this abandon the account and eventually we will purge it DOES NOT FLY! A very angry nothappy929
Here's an entry from the Skype Help pages -
