Received an email today purporting to be from Skype and asking me to log on to a site hyperlinked from the email and change my password.

To me it looked like a scam, not least because it included a somewhat confusing – to me – explanation of how I could know it wasn’t. As if!

So I contacted my friend and Skype guru Phil Wolff, who posts regularly to the SkypeJournal (which is actually independent of Skype). Phil assured me that actually the email was the real thing and pointed me to a post backgrounding the matter. Recommended reading for anyone who received one of those emails and is concerned.
