Hello. Today I've decided to make a small tutorial how to check someones skype properly. There are many scammers predenting to be some known peoples. The first step before trade is to pm someone on the forums to confirm if you are talking to him on skype. Let me introduce my small tutorial
I've used my own skype because it was easier for me to search myself on my girlfriend account.

According to the last days, make trading verification to every trade you do!
Firstly we seach for a good deal for us over the forum, then we look for the contact details.
As we can know it is easier and better to contact via skype, so we have to find information what is the skype nick. Remember to always confirm the skype via pm.

Here we go :


Now we want to add this guy so I give the nick :


As you can see there are many mentolls over the skype so how to check which one is the guy? Well, the best way is to copy the nickname "Mentoll6" in this case and search for it. I gave only "Mentoll" just to make it more clarify.
Now we think it is the correct one so we check the profile:

If the Skype is exacly the same as the nick on the forums you contact the right guy!:)

There may be a situation that you add someone already and keep talking with him but you are not sure if it is the correct skype. Like you can see marcin, but not mentoll6. You just have to click here:

And the information about profile will pop up same as before:


How people usually try to scam? They make similar skypes for example

Mentolll6 instead Mentoll6


Mentoll.6 instead Mentoll6

.smegtibia instead smegtibia

And many other things to make thier nick almost the same.

I hope it will help someone.


Maybe it is worth to stick it up

How should I change it then? Tell me which thread should I copy and nicknames.

It's a good thread, don't get me wrong. Just don't want you to have an advantage as there are many other re-sellers here trying to make business. You can use your own contact info, just the part of you selling accounts and stuff should be something else, something fictional if you know what I mean. Just make something up, a name that doesn't exist.

Another way is to add the person, then send A Message on Tibia/xeno with random Numbers "w24g7906" and tell him/her to send that on Skype to you :)
