security issue?

I got an instant (voiced) message after I downloaded the latest update.  Since I was working on something else, I just jotted down the site I was told to visit so I could come back to it:  fixgr.com.  A search here didn't bring up anything and a search on the internet itself brought up a "coming soon" site. 

 

Is this a security problem?  I try to question everything in case of hackers and computer viruses.  Was there more to the message? 

 

Thanks

Re: security issue?

You got a common spam/scam/phishing message.

 

To prevent getting those change your Skype privacy settings to allow calls and allow IMs from....people in my Contact list only.
