Reporting incidents of attempted scams.


We're always grateful to users for reports of attempted scams. Some are well known, some are new and all are reported to Skype for evaluation and action where required.

May we make a request not to include the scammer's full URL or link in your posts?

In the past some users have been tempted to follow the links with predictably unfortunate results.

Thank you for your understanding and assistance in fighting cyber crime.


I recommend that you always run the latest Skype version: Windows & Mac

If my advice helped to fix your issue please mark it as a solution to help others.
Please note that I generally don't respond to unsolicited Private Messages. Thank you.
