Hey guys just wanted to put this up just to make ppl aware that it’s happening, if anything like this account tries to contact you on skype.. Just don’t except… I emailed stars with the info straight away and they said the account was known to them and skype and would be shut down by the end of the day.
This account added me on skype as Pokerstars Online Support, pretty lol… but either way I excepted and it just tilted the hell outa me… They were trying to make calls to me via skype while I was grinding. I just blocked it and marked as abusive.
