Just received this IM on Skype. Is this common, and I've been lucky up till now, or the start of a trend? I've had the occasional 'dodgy' IM from individuals, but not one like this.
It's been blocked, of course, and they won't be getting my custom!  Angry

Re: Skype spam

I haven't seen anything but then I don't have Skype in start up so it's not always on unless I remember to click on it.

Re: Skype spam

@jmdlp thanks
I'll keep an eye open for Skype Spam, I use skype frequently and was considering subscribing to the 'unlimited world package' (currently PAYG cost me around £5 per month).
Guess I'll hold back
