Re: did i won 100,000 dollars,

Hi, Guzzisti, and welcome to the Community,

 

This is yet one more example of a common scam circulating around the internet.  Do not click on any links; ignore it, and if received via Skype, block the sender and tick the Report as Abuse box.  You could also file your report via e-mail to abuse@skype.net.

 

Skype would never endorse such a scheme let alone host any such thing.

 

Regards,

Elaine
