...and to be complete for any people looking at this later on:

Adobe employees have a STAFF badge attached and bear the Adobe logo right to their name. No other persons are Adobe employees and should not be trusted if they claim being an employee.

Who is "This person" as cited by weeb1172 as above?

I am a novice.  Thus I don't understand it.  I will assume that I am not "This person" as cited by weeb1172.

Ignore the first message here... YOU received a scam notice from someone wanting your skype information

Post the Adobe ID of the person who contacted you so YOUR scammer may be reported and banned

Hi John,

It's all rocket science to me.  Unfortunately my wife & I too busy to learn more about being scammed.  But we will revisit the issue when we have some spare time.

Thanks for responding to me.

If you do not have less than a minute to be able to write the Adobe ID of the person who asked for your skype information, that leaves that person free to scam you, and other forum members
