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,

having the same question , but from someone from cote d'ivoir( right next to ghana) altough the video qhould be of medium quality , it stalls and sometimes I think ime looking at the same images. 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.
