    I don't know what he is up to, but he added me out of nowhere, barely replied, never mentioned his BHW username and it's a fresh account with only two contacts (one was my account). So if this acc is adding you, stay FAR away! Report him to Skype...

    He added me and after I asked twice what he wants, his reply was:
    Yes please...

    So it's either a bot, a scammer that contacted too many people to handle it, or some supern00b that just got online.

    My SkypeID is only available here on BHW so there is no other way except random to get my ID.

    Whenever I get a random add that doesn't include an indication that it came from BHW and knows who they are talking to (and generally with a pic of a semi-sexy woman), my response is the same: "Who are you and why do you want to be added to my contacts list?"

    75% never reply
    25% give me the whole "I'm new to skype and found you in a group and thought you were interesting". I play along for a few mins and then ask them, "does ewhoring really still work?". Most stop replying right about then... :D

    Well, that's kind of how the process goes on my acc too...
    But since this one is just a few months old and only added on BHW, I'm intrigued that the person was from (browsing) BHW.

    On a side note:
    Could you please check my submission on the Beta Tester forum? Would be pretty much appreciated :)
