Speak of the devil... I got this mail in my spam folder this morning. I don't even have a Skype account. This one was particularly sloppy - I could see all the HTML tags, and it illustrates exactly what I was talking about.
(not to mention the misspellings of "access" and "choice". Official e-mails tend to be thoroughly spell-checked.)
We recently noticed one or more attempts to log in to your Skype
account from a foreign IP address and we have reasons to believe that
your account was hijacked by a third party without your authorization.
If you recently tried to accesse your account while traveling, the unusual log
in attempts may have been initiated by you. However, if you are the
rightful holder of the account, just click on the link below and login using
your most frequently used IP address.
If you choose to ignore our request, you leave us no choise but to
temporaly suspend your account.
We ask that you allow at least 48 hours for the case to be investigated
and we strongly recommend to verify your account in that time.
