strange event possible spammer

They were probably set to invisible. That being said, there's been a great
rise over the past few years of strange people adding you so they can try to
hook you with a phishing scam, they're often pornographic bots who have a
few stock phrases in their vocabulary. They shouldn't be hard to recognize
as such, but you can't just accept just anybody anymore and assume they're a
friend of a friend, or someone who got your name from this list or that that
you're on..

Subject: [Skypeenglish] strange event possible spammer

Hi list, ken here. a strange one the other day a person wanted to add me as
contact and I did but at about 2 hours apart for each this person messaged
me with things like hey there or hello and in each case the person was
offline. these messages again all happened at about two hour intervles how
can someone message you if they aren't online line. it's as if the person
had their skype set automaticly to message people every two hours. removed
them from contacts do to suspicious activity. was this some kind of a
spammer/stalker/sexual type?
