Hello One and all,

I have a question, yesterday I received some spam messages via SKYPE.
Since this is the only forum where my SKYPE ADDRESS was.
It is the only conclusion I can come to right now.
Bar someone going through random names and the sort in SKYPE.

Has anyone else received anything similar?

Hi Nigel,

No I haven't gotten spam via skype (as of yet)

And my skype has also been on this forum....not to say that it wasn't taken from here...

Good Luck,

I haven't had any spam with Skype here either. The most spam I have ever got on a messaging program was with ICQ.

I've had a few random "Exchange contact details", and I don't publish my Skype details anywhere. It's like email spam - you'll be hit occasionally however low a profile you keep.

Hello All,

Thanks for that everyone.
I have had none since the original hit, a total of 5 text messages.
I have also updated to the latest Beta for the Mac and there are some new animated icons included in it.
I would like to propose a large animated icon messaging system for friends ;-)

Thanks again,
