    Guys I have a problem now.
    Someone have created similar skype name : dinknfbfbfb which is exactly similar to dinkufbfbfb
    When people trying to add me by searching "dinkufbfbfb" he comes first sometime.

    Do you know how to resolve this issue.?

    I tried contacting skype team they said they cannot do anything.


    Regards,

    How could they do something about that? It's a users choice what username to choose.
    But I see your dilemma here because unlike you, he even has a description on his account (BHW Account Seller) and people will probably add him first without checking the profile for the real SkypeID.
    The only solution I see here right now would be to create a new account with a new ID. Message your contacts on the old account or add them with your new one. You can also run two instances of Skype at the same time for as long as you think its necessary.

    Edit:
    I reported his account as abuse, I doubt that will help since there had been no previous conversation with me that justifies closure of his account, but that's the least I could do :)

    I wish I could insult OP and call him a fucking idiot without getting an infraction. These forum rules sure are hard to stick to.

    There's no solution, but you can leave your skype handle as an html link like this MySkype with the url as "Skype:dinkufbfbfb?chat".

    honestly, I'm just glad you're "trying". I'm getting repetitive banning strain injuries from you alone.



    I actually thought this was going to be about resolving skype IP addresses. OP, you can't stop people registering similar names on skype. You'll have to work out some secret codeword so that people adding you on skype know it's really you and not the other dinkufbfbfb.

    It would be fun to group register as:


    Code:
    dinknfbfbfbf
    dinknfbbfbfb
    dinknnfbfbfb
    dinknffbfbfb
    dinknfbfffbf
    dinknbfbfbf
    dinknfbbffbf
    ... 

    In my humble belief, OP would absolutely enjoy it.


    Best Regards,
    Jaymien.

    I hate scammers, they are always trying to take what people have built. You can try and report there account
    with multiple other accounts and see you you get results like that.

    I've got lots of first world problems too, OP. It's 10:54am here, and I'm starving and have to wait 6 more minutes before I can order a delicious steak delivered to my house.
