Below is an example of how scammers are using skype. Skype doesn’t make them any more legitimate. In fact, you will discover scammers always some some made-up reason for why their camera on skype is NOT working but okay to text back and forth – keeping them anonymous and as slimey shadey as hiding behind disposable email address and fake names.
Do not use skype to sell things. It’s usually scammers.
