EDIT: Nevermind, Microsoft owns Skype now. (eBay used to) However, I'm still uncertain if it's safe or not. Haven't used Skype for this...

Yes Microsoft NOW owns Skype but if you read this PayPal Annual Privacy and Error Resolution Notice that they email to everybody you will see this.

Well they take pretty much all what they can. You should operate wisely. However, you can always use other services and forward calls to your skype phone number.

Just curious how they can get skype ID from skype phone number? Is it really possible?
