payment taken without authorisation

I have not used Skype since 2006... However, today I get an e-mail stipulating that you've taken money from me to top up my account because I have it set to "auto-recharge on low balance"!


This is a feature that has been added on your end and something I have never agreed to or activated.


As such I have reported this to Paypal as an illegal transaction and am having a meeting with my bank and legal council tomorrow to discuss recovery of the money.
