Most of us are aware of the scams/phishing attempts that are going around but you would be surprised how many is not and how many get caught out,it happens daily and people make a living from it,As per usual common sense is the best way and of course there is other ways to check out these things or simply just delete the email and block.

An email just arrive today with the following attached to it…I have not seen anything like this myself before purporting to be Skype so just a heads up on the topic. So that’s it till Monday.
