Unauthorized use of my Email Address to open an account

Hello, I tried to open an account with my email and it seems someone has used my email to open an account. I need help deleting or removing that account (or at least it's link to my email) so that I can use my email to open an account with my skype name.

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

you can still use your email address to create an account even if there is alreay an account registered under that email address.

 

moreover, you can either contact support (contactus@skype.net) and request to unlink your email address from that account - or request for a new password for that account (the password will be sent to your registered email address), login, then change the email address registered in that unknown account to something else.
