Why is someone else trying to use my Skype account

I have been receiving several emails a day about putting money on my account, failed payments, refunding money from my account.  All nice and good, but I am not doing anything  and DO NOT want to pay for anything.  All emails refer to my Skype account and my email, but the name in all the emails is Bartley Stokes, whoever the hell that is.  I don't know if he;s trying to hack my account.  I have changed my passwords on my account, but he continually keeps causing all these emails.

 

It has gotten so bad that Skype suspended my account and I had to verify my account to reactivate it.

 

I am unable to find anyway to contact someone in support to block this jackass from causing all this **bleep**.

 

What steps do I take now?

Nice to see so many threads go unanswered.

 

And the BS emails continue.
