Received this scammer message via an Airbnb inquiry today:
"Hi I am contacting you regarding accommodation for an international student from China. It is for the in-between period before the start of the school-year. Since the comfort and safety of the international student is of paramount importance, I wanted to discuss many details of this AirBnB listing with you, to ensure that it is a good fit. Could you please give me your S,k.y pe username, and we could have a quick call there? If you do not have a S,k.y pe, you can also give 650me 488your 44phone 61number in this way and I will call you to have a quick discussion. Look forward to hearing from you soon!"
Note the way that they get the word "skype" through (which Airbnb blocks out) -- they spell it S,k.y pe
And note the way that they append numbers onto words to get them thru unrecognized as a phone number.
