    I am not sure if anyone has this problem. I have installed Skype Mobil the first day I got my Incredible. I have made several Skype to Skype calls already and it works wonderful. However, yesterday I have received 2 IM spams (my privacy settings are set to people on my list only), so I shouldn't be getting any spam. When I log onto Skype from my laptop, these IM's don't even show-up at all, so I can only see them on my phone. I have no option to report as spam or ignore or delete even. I can only highlight and close the message, which does not get rid of it and it keeps coming back. Has anyone experienced this and if so, do you know of a solution? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I wrote to support about this as it is rather annoying. It seems most of us using Skype mobil have this issue. I hope they can fix it soon!

    I just set up Skype on my Droid Incredible, and now i'm getting a lot of spam, mostly from "monitor.online.lm7", which is an obvious phishing scam. I've gotten 4 of these identical emails in the past hour. They don't appear on my other computers, all of which are set to receive IMs only from my Contacts. I can't find such a setting on Skype Mobile. And the only way to block a sender seems to be to have it in Contacts.

    Has anyone else found a way to solve this problem?

    Oh, btw, the above link provided by Chandria now only takes one to the Skype forum main page -- apparently Skype doesn't want people to know that others share the same problem with Skype Mobile.

    I'd contact the Skype app developers:
