Skype’s Credit Card problems

Sometimes too much growth is not such a good thing. Especially when you have not scaled your systems to meet the rising demand from consumers who like your service. Latest example is Skype, which is now facing a unique set of problems – it is having a tough time accepting credit card payments from consumers who want its SkypeOut service. (One blogger cries foul!) Light Reading spoke to the company officials who confirmed billing issues, as company attempts to put anti-fraud measures in place. These complaints have been all over the Skype forums for a few days now. Previously some had reported SKAM problems and other quality and connecting issues with Skype’s money making part of the service. I am surprised Stuart hasn’t posted about this on his wonderful Skype Journal as yet. Meanwhile Skype has run out of UK numbers. Seems like SkypeIn is taking off as well.
