We are asked to sign up to what appears to be an X-rated video chat site: It looks like our Eva is in fact Nancy, but who cares about such minor details when it appears we have a free date?

Lets move on to the registration: This looks like a standard registration form, so lets complete it and click Continue: Now wait a second, our credit card information is required and that’s not what we had agreed to.

More and more people are turning to Skype for their cybersex needs.

Whether they are seeking simple text chats, phone sex or even video chats, Skype has become to tool of choice for all manner of online sexual gratification. With professional cam girls charging between $2-$10 per minute for cam to cam webcam sex, many men (and women) are seeking more affordable alternatives.

The skype show will be not displayed on our site only in the skype program.

Have you ever received a contact request on Skype from someone you don’t know?

Why would we need to provide payment details if “today’s charge is $0.00” anyway?

There goes our free date and at the same time this reveals the true aim of this scam: credit card fraud.

This may happen from time to time, particularly if your Skype name is publically searchable.

But what is really behind these contact requests and why do people bother?

Whoever gains access to the requested information (name, card number, CVC/CVV code and so on) can use your credit card on the internet for whatever they want.
