Skype Password Scam

As you may know, many online services will notify you when you change your password as a security measure. Facebook, Gmail and so on do this for example. A rather scummy scam going around at the moment sends an email telling you that your Skype account password has been changed. "Hmm", you think to yourself "I didn't change my password, I better sort this out." However, clicking the link in the email will lead you to a convincing-looking fake Skype website, and of course if you enter your details there, you account is really compromised at that point. Sneaky.
