Skype - why do men keep calling me?!

... particularly French men?!

Since I signed up a short time ago, every couple of days or so, I get some guy calling. I haven't picked up the call yet as 1) it's not been convenient and 2) I'm a little hesitant because I really don't know what they want.

Am I being 'Skype spammed'? The 'unavailable' sign doesn't seem to make any difference and yesterday one was so persistent he IM'd me 3 times saying 'pick up the phone'! Is this normal and just to be ignored?

Your comments/shared experiences would be much appreciated.

Clare Some men do it because they can. This has been discussed on a skype forum and is an issue for women. It mainly occurs when women have skype-me turned on, this doesn't sound like the situation in your case. One line of defence is to block unwanted callers, which is one of the options you have when someone calls. Another option, to reduce the risk of receiving such calls is to remove any personal details that you may have on there, that can include removing a photo if you have one and even the fact you are female.

Clare Sometimes I get a contact from someone who is either on LinkedIn or Ecademy, but on experience they are essentially 'spamming me'. So as has been suggested I block them. MIKE Michael Fleming Channel Consulting Services The I.T. Business Partner Network Club

Clare, The secret? NAVIGATION, NAVIGATION, NAVIGATION! First get to know Skype - there is a useful hyperlink in my profile, a good starting point if you need one. Then, adjust your settings to suit your needs. West London Ecademy

Doesn't happen to me. So maybe it is Skype spamming and maybe it is gender related ... or maybe I've just got no mates! Don't have any answers other than if you are unsure about the origin - don't interract and block the contact.

Claire Even wierdos can download Skype. Fortunately there are settings to block unwanted contact. I suspect that you have already decided to explore the menus and user account settings or go here for specific instructions. Regards Stephen
