First thought on eBay buys Skype

Quite a simple one, actually. There’s going to be a new breed of phishing: “your Skype account has been debited by $34.. please go to this website if you think this is wrong.”

Given that I get about 10 phishing emails relating to eBay pretty much each day (my account is so suspended – if I had one, that is), I can’t see the magic not spreading on to Skype.


  1. Does this mean that everyone with an Ebay account gets a skype account?

  2. Recently I’ve had Paypal spam telling me people are giving me money. That’s been a new one.

  3. Hah! If you believe those, I have an internet telephony compnay to sell you ….
