Hi, mannd,

 

Please report these incidents to Skype Customer Support; here is a link to start with: contact customer service

 

I would also recommend you change your Skype account, PayPal account, and the payment method on file passwords immediately if you have not already done so.  You ought to check with the payment method issuer to ensure no further fraudulent charges have been posted to your account.

 

Last and certainly not least, please ensure your computer is fully updated with all of the latest patches available.  Run your preferred anti-spyware/malware/virus software with the latest virus signature files available.

 

Regards,

elainem77

The Skype Support website.
The Support Network.
