    Skype invites?


    I have two questions because I'm getting tired of people I don't know asking me if they can add me to Skype.
    1. How do people that you don't know find you?
    2. Can I block unknown people from contacting me?

    Then Block
    Or Spam

    You can go to tools > Options > Privacy and select everything as contacts only. That may help.

    I posted about the same issue at the following link. Unless Microsoft have changed the way it works since December last year, then I don't think you can, only mark them as spam.

    Unsolicited contact request...Possible spammer's path

    You can press delete then you have a choice
    Spam or Block
    Click whatever you want to do and that is all there is to it

    Donald, the problem with that, is, they just keep coming & coming under different names. There is no "end".

    I haven't gotten any in awhile, but my block & spam list is HUGE(about 150-160). I have already set Skype up, for contacts only, from the very beginning, and I know someone else with the same problem.
