I saw this on another forum and thought it would be a good idea to warn people here as well. If you use Skype and have set up "automatic top up" from your credit card you would be very wise to change your password now and probably it would be sensible to change it often.I only use the free call service so wasn't aware. Apparently it has been going on for some years but just recently it has resurfaced and a fair few people are being hit.First of all you get an emaıl sayıng you have been topped up. It's goes on to say that if you want to cancel the top up click the link, however the link will take you to a phishing site. linkThe link below is for the website where I got the above link fromLink

Useful to know Abi, thanks.

If at first you don't succeed, that's about average around here.
