PROTECTION ALLERT ® voice call

I am getting a voice call from PROTECTION ALERT ® but have declined. I can find no information about this caller and I am guessing that it is bogus.

If I am correct then I will block the caller. Please let me know if this caller is real (From SKYPE) or bad and should be blocked.
Thanks,
TriviaWolf

Re: PROTECTION ALLERT ® voice call

I recieved an "urgent notification" from Skype itself.. telling me to go to web-site w^3 soslt . com and follow instructions.. I didn't go to the site (it's not even googlble) - is it also a scam?

Correct, that's a rogue site. Pretty much, any "urgent notification" is fake, whether it seems legitimate or not.

Re: PROTECTION ALERT ® voice call

Skype will *never* perform automated calling like that. It's safe to ignore and block these users. And best to also check the "Report abuse" box in the "Block contact" window.

Keep your Skype up to date
