I got a contact request on Skype recently that for a moment I thought might be legitimate. It purported to be from someone overseas in a country where my father has done charity work, and I wondered if it might be someone looking for him. Then, on a whim, I googled the name. Seven different scammer warning sites popped up. One had an almost identical blurb to the one I got. ScammerDude was blocked with a quickness and I warned my dad about it, just in case.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

I posted in the strange coincidences thread about someone on skype just a couple of days ago.  I got what looked like a genuine contact request from someone I don't know but I did know the person in the photo they were using!  A friend of mine has had his pictures used by scammers a lot and the police are involved to try and work out what can be done. He is based in the UK but most of the scammers are in Nigeria, they usually claim to be US military personnel.

I've been getting increasingly hostile with the ones who will not leave me alone.  The computer one and the 'air duct cleaning' people.

'I have asked many times to be taken off your calling list.  I know this is a scam.  I'm not interested, nor will I ever be interested, in listening to you.  Take me off your [expletive] calling list and stop [expletive] calling me.'  In a very loud voice.

It's not working but it makes me feel better for a little bit.
That's a scam?  I get one or two a year, and just tell them that we don't have any air ducts.

Common sense is not a gift, but a curse.  Because then
you have to deal with all the people who don't have it.

In the message window on FB, there is a little cog icon like for settings - that will allow you to report the convo to FB.

I don't know for sure if it is a scam but since they are not following the 'Do Not Call' laws, they are scammers, as far as I'm concerned.
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.
