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.
