    Default Latest Skype scam?

    Hi all
    I just got a call on Skype from 'system administrator' - an automated message to say my computer may be infected and I should go to website www.soks.com or something like that to clear my PC.

    Is this new? I have not heard of this type of scam happening before...I can imagine your average Mum and Dad on skype thinking that they have an infected PC because the skype voice told them so...

    this one a bit different. My Skype actually rang with an incoming call, and when I answered it, it then gave me a verbal spiel....
