Skype name in profile

Unread post by RP » Mon Mar 05, 2018 6:03 am

Not wishing to undermine the great work Steve does on this site to maintain security but I have recently been bombarded with calls on Skype from West African sounding women whom I have been forced to block. I don't know where they harvested my Skype name from but I have removed it from my profile on here just in case. Any one else had similar experiences? Why a thirty something model lookalike would be interested in an old twat like me is a mystery :roll: - it's more likely to be an entire internet cafe in Accra ;)

I doubt it's come from here but that's a fair point to make. I should probably remove the option to list it from the admin side of things. I can't remember the last time I used skype now, calling worldwide is fairly easy with messenger and whatsapp now

I have to use Skype to keep in touch with my Aunt who is in her late eighties now and obviously will not change her "modus operendi" now. All my other Skype contacts have either now passed away, including Eric Goodwin, or in other cases just disappeared. I do actually still have Steve English on that list, though.
