Someone registered my email address on Skype

Someone has used my e-mail address to register their Skype account. After reading the FAQ I see that I cannot delete an account or change a name, so I need someone who is able to do that to do it for me.


The user registered 2 different names on Skype using my email (both yesterday).  Being that I have access to the email account and he doesn't, I changed that passwords on the user names, to lock him out, but have no problem with him getting his user names back.


Can somone please advise me who to contact and how to get this resolved.  I would like to be able to use the email address that he registered to register myself (something that I just haven't done yet); so it will need to be removed first I suppose.

contact skype and ask them to unlink your email address from that unknown account.  just open the link below, then click the Email Support button (for premium and other selected members, live chat may be available too);
