Forgot my password , forgot the email

I have really big problem. I forgot my password and my email and I can't log in skype. I have one email in tough but I used to delete it because, there was about 5000 SPAM messages. Is there any way I can get in my skype account ? This account that I am using right now is from my older skype account

Dear vacheto0o,

 

As Primemover suggests, if you do not have means to validate or authenticate your rightful ownership of the account such as via billing history, you may not be able to restore access to the account.  Here is information on the type of details which may be used to prove account ownership, which includes a link to reaching Skype Customer Service:

Best regards,

Re: Forgot my password , forgot the email

if your account has a billing or purchase history in the last 6 months, you can request for a new password without the need of your registered email address. just click the link below;

Re: Forgot my password , forgot the email

password reset tokens will be only sent to your registered email address (primary email address).  You can have more than one additional emails in your profile (profile email addresses), but you can't request password reset tokens to be sent there.

So in your case, you need to contact customer support (if you have no access to your registered email address anymore). They may ask you to answer some verification questions to prove that you indeed own that account, before they can assist you in resetting your password

 

Just open the link pasted below to see the instructions on how to get in touch with customer service -
