live or fake video? can I be fooled?

[ Edited ]

Question, can a person from ghana video call me on skype and talk to me and really be showing me a prerecorded vidio and not be live or in real time?? The reason I ask is that it looks like the conversation does not match the web cam vidio that i am looking at.
 thank you in advance,

Its just been going on , these calls , for a few days but i wonder to if its possible. the way the conversation seems all to weird and good to be trough but we  cannot spaek on microphone. hope Skype can look into this issue

there have been several, actually numerous reports of scammers using pre-recorded videos then blackmailing their "victims".

do a skype search for christina.andy and tell me if you see a black guy or a woman according to the profile picture I think this person is a scammer and I can not confirm it

yes, with the use of a third party software, such is indeed possible.

DEAR ALL

NOW A DAYS, YOU GET A VERY GOOD LOOKING #GIRLS #FACEBOOK REQUEST, AND ASKED YOU TO COME ON #SKYPE, AND THEY SHOW YOU FAKE #VIDEOS WITHOUT VOICE BECUASE THEY INSERT VIDEOS THROUGH #SOFTWARES SUCH AS #CAMSOFT AND ALL. THEY ASK YOU FOR MOENY BY ANY MEANS SUCH AS I HAVE BEEN ASKED THAT HER LAPTOP IS NOT WORKING, AND NEED 350 OR 500 US #DOLLARS FOR REPAIR OR NEW #LAPTOP AND HER NANY IS SICK AND SHE IS UNABLE TO PAY BILLS AND ALL THAT CRAP.

I REQUEST, BEWARE EVERYONE OF YOU TO STAY SAFE AND IF ANYONE COMES TO YOU AND DIRECTLY SAY THAT THEY ARE IN LOVE WITH YOU AND YOU ARE SO #BEAUTIFUL AND ALL THAT CRAP. PLEASE GO AND GOOGLE A LITTLE AND YOU WILL FIND EVERYTHING.

I JUST TYPED THAT CAN WE ADD #FAKE VIDEO TO SKYPE AND I GOT SO MUCH OUT OF IT, AS SOON AS I GAVE THIS PAGE LINK TO HER, SHE CLOSED HER VIDEO AND SAID ME BYE THAT I DO NOT TRUST HER. BUL**bleep**

WHEN I SAID I AM MUSLIM, SHE BECAME #MUSLIM AND WHEN I SAID I AM #CHRISTIAN, SHE BECAME CHRISTIAN FOR ME TOO. LOLS

I HAD FUN FOR AROUND 5 DAYS AND NOW ALL THIS AHHAHAHAAA.

I AM SHARING THESE IMAGES FROM THE VIDEO CHAT AND YES I WASN'T HEARING HER VOICE. ROTFL
