Well this has just been amazing since school let out, but it seems the hackers are on the rampage. Not knowing for sure, but it just seems that these things just go nuts when the kids get out of school for the summer and have too much time on their hands.
Not that it’s always kids messing around some of these are very serious and really seems to be effecting Skype again really bad. From past experience when Skype first started you could get in touch with support and if the hacker was still actively using your account they would block them right away.
What I find interesting, is that since Skype got bought out by Microsoft – well it’s a different story and if you didn’t know that Skype was sold – in the main login page for your account scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see this – Skype Login Page
Well I have seen what my friend Sissy has been thru since her Skype was hacked and I wanted to write this blog to warn people that it’s a different world out there these days. Sissy didn’t click any links when she was hacked – in fact they hacked her gmail account and the only reason that she knew that was that she got notice per her cell phone that her password was successfully changed and she didn’t change it.
And from there it just kept snowballing to the point that this hacker not only ask you for money – but then tries to get you to click a link to join a new room they opened. Now the link is a dead give away and should never be clicked. I will put the link here but will make it a broken link so do not click this for any reason if you get something like this from ANY contact that you know. http://skyipe.net.tf/www.skype.com/account/indexen.php?i=2793635
Note the link and see how Skype if spelled skyipe – never, never click on that link as when you do you have just been put on the hackers list. These hackers will talk to you, give you their payment processor accounts and this is what I wanted to make everyone aware of – together we can fight this.
Before you block and delete these hackers – talk to them – get their Paypal, Payza, Solid Trust Pay, and Perfect money addy. Then these can be reported to the payment processors and they can track these people down. If you just block and delete them then they are just going to keep doing this to innocent people.
So working together we can make a difference – let’s don’t let these kind of people ruin it for us that love working online and hurting the people that we care about.
Before I close, I also seen an email today that is a different type of scam that I have not seen before but the headline was Commission Transfer and I know for a fact that all the sites that I earn commissions from would not be sending me an email with a link to have to claim my commissions – so please, please be careful and take EXTRA precaution as these hackers are very, very active right now.
