Adult skype dating site
In the above example, a spammer sends a message pretending to want to make contact with you – but in fact has used the opportunity to advertise their adult “dating” website.
I find it hard to believe that Skype Contact Request spam is as effective as other mechanisms of spamming.
These can either be received in the form of an instant messaging chat session, or – as in the example below – as a bogus Contact Request from someone.
Skype spam is far from a new phenomenon – but as more and more people use the service, more folks are becoming exposed to spam sent via the platform.
We’re likely to see more and more cases where innocent Skype users’ accounts are compromised by hackers and used as a “launching pad” for spam campaigns – whether they be to advertise spammy goods or to spread malicious links.
But that’s only really effective against that specific spammer.
There’s nothing to stop the spammer creating another Skype account and starting his or her campaign again.
If your online suitor asks you to get involved in these types of financial transactions and exchanges, it’s likely that they’re a scammer trying to lure you into illegal activities.
Some scammers don’t bother with catfishing, rather using more efficient ways to exploit victims.
