Online Help - Perform System Maintenance

I have received 2 calls from someone claiming to be Skype System help.  I have never received these calls before.  These are Robo calls.  Are they real and why are they calling me?

 

If Skype wants to call me than have a real person call, not some Robo call.

It's not Skype...it's a phishing/spam call.

 

You can prevent those from getting through by signing in to your account on a Mac or PC and changing your privacy settings to allow calls from people on my Contact list only.
