Thanks to Websense Security Labs for informing us about a new advance-fee scam targeting Chinese Skype users. Apparently, Chinese users get a message indicating that they have won a significant sum of money and prizes. They are directed to a phishing website where they fill out contact information for the prizes but nothing too suspicious. Finally, they are redirected to a bank transfer page where they will have to send in a fee of several hundred RMB to collect the prize. I wonder if the officials reading Tom Skype users’ messages are falling for this too.
