    Keep getting random people contacting me through Skype claiming to be "interested in buying one of my websites" and asking for me to give them access to my GA.

    Obviously, the answer has been no across-the-board so far, wondering what the angle is and what the intended scam would be in this case.

    Is anyone else experiencing anything similar

    Everyday, these hackers are getting more ingenious.

    That hack was discovered in 2018 but has evolved/mutated for 2020 and beyond.

    OP, thanks for your suspicious diligence.

    Ir's not uncommon for a person selling a web property to share their GA with the Broker and/or potential buyer.

    To avoid scams, use a reputable broker such as:

    https://feinternational.com/
    https://empireflippers.com/

    If you choose not to use a broker, force potential buyers to pay a refundable deposit in order to see GA.
