Hacking of an account??

Hi,

 

Maybe somebody had a similar situation. Today i came back home, my computer was on and skype was running. I observed an conversation between me and friend from the list. I interrupted the conversation and asked the people what is going on, my friend told me that she thought that she is talking with me, and sb was still taking part in this conversation and wrote more. It could be possible when my account would be active on two computers and my brother was making fun of me but the fact is that my skype account was active only on my computer. Is it possible to get the knowledge from what ip my skype account was used? Or to trail the person that was doing it? Please let me know.

i thought it might be the case.... the person (woman) said she was here in the states... low and behold she is in Aftrica.
wanting to chat and what not.... i chatted with her a while just to get that info....i do no think she was aware that i had an idea of what her thought were.... this is just my guess. the phone number is  xxxxxxxxxxxxx
