Report to your mail provider straight away. It's the only way to fight back.
Yep, that was one of two mistakes in the E Mail, the other one was that " Pay Pal " wasn't right, can't remember the detail but it was different to a proper one.
Other than these two mistakes and the BIG panel for the Link to claim your cash back it looked pretty good.
After a few Beers it would have been very easy to be enraged that Skype had done something you hadn't asked for and to follow the Link.
Maybe there's a lesson to be learnt here about Beer and Internet !
