just ignore and report them.  It's an obvious and well known scam indeed.

It is very sad that he is being used in such a scam. Besides by incluindo his son's accident.

Hi, women00, and welcome to the Community,

 

Please see this FAQ article: https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA34447/what-should-i-do-if-i-see-abusive-behavior-on-skype

 

BLOCK this contact and check the REPORT AS ABUSE/SPAM check-box!  Do not continue contact with this person.  These are all scams and phishing schemes intended to take advantage of you and to persuade you to reveal personal information and your banking or credit card account details.  Once they have this information, they can commit fraud and identity theft. 

 

Regards,

Elaine
