I believe I saw something familiar a couple of months ago but did not see a repeat.  It may well be that they are trying to catch another subset of unsuspecting users as word has got around about the phone calls.

Subject: [BCAB] Possible Skype Scam

Just a warning here.  I've just had a Skype call, which got me
suspicious.

 

The alleged caller name was: "Urgent on line repair".

 

Needless to say I didn't answer, and indeed have blocked the Sender in
Skype.

 

I can't be 100% certain, but I'd stake life and limb it was one of
these scams telling me my Skype was causing virus issues.

 

I shall leave you to decide what to do if you get such a call
yourselves.

 

George.
