    HOW TO AVOID A SCAM VIA SKYPE! Check how to check!

    Hello. Today I've decided to make a small tutorial how to check someones skype properly. There are many scammers predenting to be some known peoples like @smeg; , @Mentoll; , @Koksik22; and many others. I dont want to paste all the nicks because it is really a large list. The most important thing you should do before trade is a pm someone on the forums to confirm if you are talking to him on skype. Let me introduce my small tutorial


    Firstly we seach for a good deal for us over the forum, then we look for the contact details.
    As we can know it is easier and better to contact via skype, so we have to find information what is the skype nick. Remember to always confirm the skype via pm.

    Here we go :



    Now we want to add this guy so I give the nick :



    As you can see there are many mentolls over the skype so how to check which one is the guy? Well, the best way is to copy the nickname "Mentoll6" in this case and search for it. I gave only "Mentoll" just to make it more clarify.
    Now we think it is the correct one so we check the profile:


    If the Skype is exacly the same as the nick on the forums you contact the right guy!

    There may be a situation that you add someone already and keep talking with him but you are not sure if it is the correct skype. Like you can see marcin, but not mentoll6. You just have to click here:


    And the information about profile will pop up same as before:







    How people usually try to scam? They make similar skypes for example

    Mentolll6 instead Mentoll6



    Mentoll.6 instead Mentoll6

    .smegtibia instead smegtibia

    And many other things to make thier nick almost the same.

    I hope it will help someone.

    TIPS HOW TO PREVENT YOUR SKYPE FROM HACK!
    According to last news, more and more people are losing acces to thier skype. There was one hacker who was doing it before. There are 2 ways of getting the acces to the account .

    First one is the password guessing. Someone might laugh but it really happens. Most of people have passwords like tibia123 . The only way to prevent this hack is to choose a good password, not the name123. The other thing you have to remember is to set diffrent passwords on your accounts over internet.

    The second way to get acces to your skype is the password reset from skype. As I heard to prevent it you have to put some funds from your card to skype account, then when you'll try to recover your password you will have to put some info about the card. If you wont do this almost every skype is easy to take up.

    havent checked but wouldnt it be close to impossible to see the difference between for ex mentoll6 and mentoIl6.
    my personal tip is to always make the deal itself over pm, or atleast confirm you're chatting with the real person by sending a pm or such

    Also, a Skype can be hacked really easy so a confirm over PM should ALWAYS happend.

    But other then that, good guide.

    @Xiogurz No point of having a "anti-scam" guide for PayPal, since they do not support digital sales and unless you are really lucky, 99% of all chargebacks will be successful. So the best way is just to advice not using it at all.

    @Mentoll ; i gave you a sticky, but you should change that a confirm over PM should ALWAYS happend to be sure.
